the barrier between us

A word
nervously uttered,
we talk
of nothing
for hours on end,
bringing us closer,
breaking down
the gulf between us.

I sit,
my phone shouldered,
you there
and each sigh
I feel breath life.
my soul desires
to break down
the distance between us.

We talk
until silent gaps
sound out
I feel so close,
you say that's nice,
breaking down
the abyss between us.

You say
'Yes' means agreed,
I listen
hear you
sigh, I sigh.
You say that reason
is behind
the barrier between us.
