It is invisible

this glass partition

Which divides us

I see you well enough

But I cannot reach you

We never quite touch

We never quite hear

We might as well be...

A thousand miles apart

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I enjoyed the subconscious word play with "pain" and "pane", even though I used the word "partition." Fortunately, this one is totally fiction, since I am very happily married!
