Carpeted Stairs

How many are there? 8? Maybe 10?
A ceiling.
One cellphone screen.
A closed door.
These are things we can see, things we can touch.
Mundane architecture of our lives.
Some carpeted stairs.
Separate us so infinitely, divide us so completely.
Theses things…they may as well be millions of miles.
Oceans of black salt spiked waves.
Two separate continents under the same roof.
Lifetimes apart.
Between you and me, cliffs, gorges, free falling empty spaces.
I hear your every move.
But you’re not there, not really.
It’s just a bunch of carpeted stairs.
