The space between us
Grows wider each day
I try to ignore it
Hoping it goes away.

But, the bridge has collapsed
The lines have come down
There’s no way to reach you
No path to be found.

The wall has been built
With more than one brick
It was built over time
And, the barrier’s thick.

How can I tell you?
I can’t get it back
I’m losing direction
My train’s off the track.

We’ve run aground
Like a ship with no rudder
Hopeless and lost
We can’t talk to each other.

I lie in bed
I hear you breathe
But, one foot away
From all that I need.

Yet, I can’t convey
The needs that I have
For fear that you’ll leave
For fear that you’ll laugh.

Day after day
We go thru the motions
We keep to ourselves
The words never spoken.
