Contact Fizzles


relationships without
contact fizzle
from unknown
worlds apart
understanding nuances
of who a person is
without reinforcing
positives regularly
separate individuals
for even memories held
become faint
as those that rely
only on reports
gossip from others
twisted stories
rather than
discussions personally
direct conversation
that involves
no others
just one-to-one
as though
they are the
only people
in the room
getting to know
each other
depending on those
interactions complied
becoming more
frequent in nature
allowing themselves
chances to know
each other
they as themselves
because those
relationships without
contact fizzle
