Language Barrier

Same motions, expressions, word combinations,
Lather-Rinse-Repeat conversations.
Replacing quality of feeling
With quantity of words 
Used in their proper meaning, -
Turning art of human connection
Into science of communication
And, in great effort to protect our own tender skin - exchanging soul for skill.
Gliding on the surface of
                  the question,
Never breaking through the ice
                           of separation,
Never coming through,
Never reaching you
The language barrier
