Maria Kreyn, 'Alone Together.'

Alone, Together

We look eye to eye but we do not see

We live in different realities

Our words fall

Without reaching the other

We try and try

But instead of understanding 

Our voices raise

Our heart beats

Our pulse quickens

A sweat is broken

Palms tighten

We look eye to eye but we do not see

Blinded by perceptions and ideologies 

We are not present

And do not know

How to belong to the ‘other’

So we remain

Alone, together
