Completely Unaware

We walk side by side

and I feel his presence close by me

and yet he’s miles away

his eyes watch me for a moment

mine watch for eternity

I feel his body so warm

but also so very cold

a sense of distance

between our closeness

the surroundings seem so unimportant

and yet so very vital

he seems so sure of himself

so content with his discontent

so certain of his uncertainty

and so completely unaware

of the fact

that he means so very much to me
