we were once pangaea

we were once pangaea,
a continent connected,
but lately laws of gravity
have left us unprotected.
disputes propelled us
needlessly,
kinetics moved us
out to sea,
we are metaphysically
strangers, unexpectedly.
pangea
like islands floating
fast away
solidifying distance,
we just can’t seem
to come to terms
with peaceful coexistence.
our conversation’s
shallow now,
our smiles
are artificial,
we choose our sides,
we shield our pride,
our friendship’s
prejudicial
as we drift further
from the core
of what this family
was before.
