Emotionally Orphaned

We went
From introduction,
To flirting,
To romance,
To love,
To a wedding,

But somewhere
Along the way,
Our passion withered,
And love,

Our physical relationship,
Became more
Of a
Business relationship.

I couldn’t reach you,
I couldn’t touch you…

Always just beyond
My outstretched fingertips.

So here I now sit,

Emotionally orphaned,

Left on the side
Of life’s road,
Straining to see you
Through tear-streaked eyes,

Only to watch you

On the horizon

Of my everything.
