How Long the Horizon

All he could do, was, reach out.

But his arms could not bridge the gap to heaven so he built a monument. An accusing finger, pointing to god. Yearning for a reciprocating digit, but never finding such a thing. Sunrise made the feeling worse. Illuminating another day alone.

Waking hours, spent heavy. Minutes lumbered by, accompanied by desolate quiet. An invisible feeling, he often thought.

Sleep, a brief escape. But only for a few hours. Responsibilities reared and roared. He found few reasons to trudge on, except that, the fates might one day reply and return her to his arms.
