Neither here nor there

Between light and darkness
lurk the shadows,
Neither seen, nor unseen,
Neither real, nor a fantasy,
Yet the shadows are both.

Between the earth and the sky
Stretches the horizon,
An arm's length away,
And yet,
A boundary unmappable,
A bridge unbridgeable.

Between love and loss,
Lies longing,
For though love be true,
Yet inevitable
Is its end.
The coin spins
between the two,
And longing is all
that remains.

In this uncharted territory
called life,
An hyphen lies
between you and me,
An hyphenated existence
all we have,
Condemned to be together,
And yet apart,
Fumbling through the journey,
