Distance

By
I distance myself from relatives and friends,
but one thing I can’t stand is the distance between you and I.

It consumes me, engulfing me with anxiety and desperation.
A knowing step I take in your direction is my only remedy.

At night I lay in bed waiting for the snowfall of sleep to drift upon me,
thinking of how things could turn out for the good.

I leave an empty space next to me, where you would sleep.
In the morning when I wake, I’d see you smiling at me.
