How It Always Will Be.

We're separated.

But, it's only a thin phone line.

I love the sound of your soft, beautiful voice.



We're side by side.

But, there are millions of miles between us.

I long to meet your flawless face.



I've never met you.

But, I see you everyday.

Your words cut me so deep.



I see you.

But, you see straight through me.

You'll never understand.



I love you.

But, you'll never love me.

That's how it is.

this poem is...almost painfully sad and full of longing. i admire the intensity.

 

That being said, Why? Why is that "how it is."

 

just curious ;]
