Ten Feet

I watched you

From the back of a car

I tried not to stare

But it hit me pretty hard.

You're hair was soaked

You're eyes were red

Pulled a silk handkerchief

From your designer tote bag.

10 feet away

But miles apart

I know every inch of your body

Except your heart.

Your cheek is pierced now

A tattoo? of who?

You cut your hair again

So what else is new? 

You're East Coast

I'm all Midwest

Where gals prefer jeans

Cause they just make more sense. 

I'm ain't saying you're high flying

I grin and bear it

You love smelling orchids

But not the dirt they're in. 


You twist your hair

Call on a cell phone

You always hated

Being alone.

I remember you smiling

It was just last week

I wipe a small tear

From the side of my cheek. 

I outline your figure

In the steam on the glass

I rub you away

With the edge of my hand.

I think you're involved

I don't really know

I pull the visor

Down on the window. 

Not every love you try

Turns out perfect

You work with what you got

Even when it keeps on hurting

But you and me

Just didn't have the strength

We didn't even know

What love takes....
