I Saw You Across the Room

I saw you across the room-
A spark,
A kindred soul.
When I got closer, I saw so much more…
The journey has been a whirlwind-
Feelings,
Adventures,
Souls dancing.
Suddenly the earth shakes-
A mistake-
You are on the other side-
A crater deep forms between us.
I'm scared,
lost,
alone.
I look into your eyes.
Distance,
Disappointment,
Heartbreak,
I reach out-
Desperate to touch you.
Fall to my knees,
Begging,
Clawing at the earth,
Anything to get back
Next to you.
Brain spinning,
Am I fighting too hard?
Are you fighting too?
Hoping you don't just turn-
and walk away.
