Through the Side of the Eye

by joetwo

Close yet so far
Separated by seats
But it might as well be miles
Not a chance of talking of getting to know one another
Of changing those glances
Through the side of the eye
Into something more
But time marches on
Nothing happens
And we both leave
A hint of regret in the air
Over what never happened
And what was lost
The wonder of possibility
Through the side of the eye
