So Close, Yet So Far

by joetwo

So close, yet so far
We might as well be across the ocean
On the other side of the world again
For all the good it is going to do
#
So close, yet so far
Tantalizingly out of reach
A mere hair’s breath in cosmic terms
Yet a gulf for all practical purposes
#
So close, yet so far
No way of making that final leap
Crossing the final divide
Stuck where we are
#
So close, yet so far
Frustrated beyond belief
Temptation just beyond reach
The universe’s practical joke
