what reaches out...does anyone know?

Keith Haring 

my eye catches the heart in you
I bend to it
there is no limit to hold those parts
I want everyone out of my way
our way gives on to east lane

what if no one believes?
there is still a grain of truth 
it is in that straight line
yet randomly held by a thin thread
sound is but silent

if only your heart was a painting,
I would be in it
delineated yet distinct
you watch from afar
aloof to all but yourself

"that thud in your heart echoes in mine miles away.
miles away."

I think heart reaches out in Lines we can't see but know are there...which I think you have described beautifully

In feet miles away, in heart there is no distance!

"if only your heart was a painting,
I would be in it". Such a beautiful thought. A lovely poem.

How easy it is to see that love has been no stranger to you. Your words reminded me so much of how I felt with the love of my life for well over 50 years.
