Rift – #writephoto

This is in response to Sue Vincent’s Thursday #writephoto prompt.  If you would like to join in the fun, you can find out all about it HERE

Once, we were so close,
I knew your thoughts.

You knew mine.

life happened.

this rift formed between us.

A chasm
that I could never fill,
never traverse.

I reached across,
but you wouldn’t take
my outstretched hand.

Now the canyon has grown so large,
neither of us can reach the other.
