Too Far

Too far too deep he said
closer than you think she said

nobody notices he said
as she gazed at him adoringly

across a padded room in a bar
full of virtual strangers

working around the clock
he runs circles between sea and land

as time swims by in schools of fish
silver in sunlight glint

of her casual smile she throws
his way on rainy days

his umbrella inside out
in the wind on the bridge

so annoying this inside out
metal branches against glass

toss and turn away from sky
that could have held them in

such brief suspension
