A fleeting glance

A fleeting glance across a crowded room,

My eyes meet yours with a familiarity only old friends know,

Your smile and happy eyes the shining light at the end of my tunnel vision,

Yet I know it is a paradox in itself.

 

A fleeting glance across a crowded room,

You look back and smile,

But with it comes the hint of the pain beneath,

An uneasy fidget and you look away.

 

A fleeting glance across a crowded room,

And distance becomes relative,

A stretch of my arm would bring you closer,

But you are already 1000 miles away.

 

A fleeting glance across a crowded room,

I step to bridge the gap,

You turn around and walk away,

And only time is left standing still.
