sitting in the dark

so here we are
sitting in the dark
and my fear is this;
i will reach for you
you will reach for me
and our fingers will find

. . . nothing

so we will remain
sitting in the dark
and we will both think

‘the other never reached’

and shame will paint our hidden faces
as we fold our hands into our laps
and vow to never reach again
