Distance


Distance… always keeping us apart
Hiding feelings breaking hearts.
We can defeat her deadly hit
Let’s show the world what distance is.
Let the sky be our connection
Let the star speak our words
Let the moon be the only witness
Of our unbreakable love.
And if one night you feel lonely
Don’t you dare let yourself cry
For tears are just mere proves
That distance has tore us apart.
Look instead into the darkness
Of our endless shiny sky
For each star is a letter
And each letter forms a word
And the moon our only witness
Knows the sky would never lie
That underneath its flawless kingdom
Someone’s rearranging the stars.
Forming just a simple phrase
Whispering into the night
“Oh my dearest, my beloved,
Even though we are apart….
I still love you with all my heart”

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
