as I lay there
your face lit by the light of the clock
I felt a distance
the gulf widened by I knew not what
I reached out
touching your arm and needing you
wanting your touch
I look at the ceiling and think
what had changed
life's flow helping us drift apart?
is a gulf widening there really?
would we take that line if cast?
pull ourselves back
removing the distance that is there
I lie there wondering.
