Keeping too much distance

We kept our distance,

seemed a safe space,

around and between us.

Safe enough for us both?

I thought so.

My thoughts turned to a smile,

but you never caught my eye

so, we just passed each other by.

I was sad because I thought

we would be joined

by our common humanity,

or maybe something not as grand,

something simple,

like kindness or warmth.

I was disappointed,

and carried on my way.
