We once stood side by side
Ignoring the small fissures starting to form
We’re both standing on opposite sides of an immense chasm,
And I’m shouting across to you
Trying to get you to notice me
But my voice is swallowed
By overwhelming nothingness
And blank stares from the other side, as you look straight through me.
I am running out of things to say and my voice is getting hoarse.
