“Writing is a form of personal freedom. It frees us from the mass identity we see in the making all around us. In the end, writers will write not to be outlaw heroes of some underculture but mainly to save themselves, to survive as individuals.”

They say it's only 235 miles
But it feels like a million.
They tell me it's only 3 days
But the time moves in years.

I miss your smile
And how it brightens up my day.
I miss your arms around me
and the way you hold me tight.

You're the one I think of before I go to sleep
The one I dream of.
You're on my mind the instant I wake up,
And stay there through the day.

I try to keep my head up
but it's so hard to miss you like this.
It's so painful to think of you
Because I yearn for your presence.

I know I'll see you soon.
In a few long days.
But, in pain, I still miss you
You're my only shining light.

Is there someone that makes you smile whenever you see them? Someone that is hard to be away from? That's what this poem is about.
