The chasm between us widens

With every sip you take

I’ve always been separate, though

Stalking silently

Through this life

It’s not you, it’s me

Splitting through at the center

Over something so ordinary

It’s hardly worth mentioning

Except until it is

So I stay on my side of the gap

And not bother you with me

This fractured human

With too much human

Who walks alone
