A Gulf Between Us

My Broken Heart

We sit across from each other
in our favorite diner.

It’s bustling with energy,
but we sit in silence.

There is nothing more to say.

Although only a small table
separates us,
it might as well be a gulf.

You’ve become so distant
that I don’t know you anymore.

You’re a stranger
staring at me waiting for me
to cross this chasm.

I can’t even begin to
break through to you.

All I can say is
I’m sorry for inviting you here;
I’m sorry for everything.

I pay my half and walk out
of your life, for good.
