What More Can We Do

There is no next step.

Brief moments near one another,
Hurt all the more
When framed in
The reality of our circumstances…

Separated by a chasm
Of never meant to be.

In public,
We manage to smile…

But inside,
Seen only by our eyes,
When we share an intimate glance,
There is so much more,
That we want,
And need to do.

But now is neither the time,
Nor the place.

And regrettably,
We will never reach that moment.

Remaining…

Empty,
Lost,
Lonely,

Wondering…

What more we can do.
