while the sun sets, behind the peaks, across from me.
So much between us,
I can see you,
but I can only watch.
I stare, as you slowly fall,
and I could reach out, but you are too far now.
our hearts are numb, my eyes are still
cold hands, wrapped around hot mugs,
like a wretched spectator,
as the sun sets on you
behind mountain peaks.
