The subway train


The space between us
Was but an inch or so
But my heartbeat drummed inside of me

For I sensed your warmth
The rhythm as you breathed
As the subway train rattled along

The tunnel curved here
Carriage swayed side to side
Your shoulder touched me, you grinned at me

I apologized
Then we started to talk
The space between had now disappeared

  11. Relationships depend on the sharing of space. That's for sure. Very nice little story of the beginning of that sharing.

  12. Wonderful poem, Robin. I like how the seemingly infinite space at the beginning of the poem was annuled by the accidental touch and conversation at the end!
