Tethered by Life

“Standing side by side on the platform
So close yet so far
“You need help with your bags?”
She denied but he knew she lied

Tethered by their own insecurities
He thought she was shy
She thought he was being cheeky

Stepped off at the next station
Went in opposite directions
He turned to have a last look
She wanted to but couldn’t

A beautiful story ended
Before it could even start.”
