Miles This Far


I've travelled miles this far
I've searched the distance for you
My heart can't stand your absence
My eyes can't stand you gone.

It's been a day,
Since you set out on a journey
But like a million years it seem
Since you are gone from me

I've tried to keep it tied
I tried to hold it down
But emotions come blazing, and
Soon will consume me

I'm lost on the road
The route you took to leave
I've travelled miles this far
Still, you're not in sight

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
