i am here
you are there
the fingers of our love hold tight to a passion
and spirit made stronger by separation
it’s difficult not being near you
not being able to feel you, a solid warm mass that i covet
it squeezes my heart like a painful gripe
but i hold on,
wishing on all the stars above to be in your presence once again
so i can inhale you like the purest cleanest air
so i can absorb you like a cool drink of water on a hot day
so that while you breathe on me,
i can hear the liquid words that roll off of your tongue
so that i can fill up on you like fuel, all the way to the tips of my toes
so that i can mold to you like the stickiest pink cotton candy
when we’re together, there is no “I”,
only a merging of souls.
when we’re separated, we’re like seeds scattered to the wind,
struggling to remain together and untarnished.
this long distance love is our life road bump, but we will rise above it
remember its not forever
that we’re apart
its forever that we’re together.
