Painful Distance

This seems to be a reoccurring theme in my poems, but what else can you write about when it’s one of the biggest forces in your life?  Some days, it genuinely hurts how far away people are, and other days I almost forget about it because I have forced myself to focus on other things.  But it’s always there.

You’re so far away
Sometimes it hurts to think about
At least a plane ride separates us
Meaning I rarely see you

All I have are memories right now
Or typed words on a screen
I just want to see your face up close
Wake up next to you each morning
