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”

    Wow! Very good. Not all tears though are from sadness. Some are from great joy. Hope one day you can get back with this person (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
