The Still

Bad news travels even faster these days.
Text
Facebook
Skype
if you want face to face

Hearts still break
voices still crack
at the attempt to explain the pain

and no amount of tech
can bridge the gap
to give a hug of solace
and love

the pain remains distant
the voices don't mend the hole
the hearts may beat but they don't heal

bad news then.
time for time
and time alone
to do what only time
can do.
