Into The Distance

And through the darkness I trudge
Your tears guide my way
My body wrought and battered
In gentle winds my soul sway

No comfort, no fruits of labour
Did taste so divine to my lips
As when you embrace me with fervour
And shower me with your kiss

Your deep eyes, so intoxicating
I brim with lust
I drink my soul’s filling
I sate my body’s thirst

Not it fills me with pleasure, my love
How numbered our days become
The guilt of parting and hurt
Again and again, but I live on

You are there, and I am not
Pain and longing in our between
Neither fair or just this separation
Only hope and memories fill in

I crave your fragrance darling
I crave your touch
But in depths of misery and suffering
Courage your voice gives much

I yearn for our days as one
For our “happily ever after”
But your love helps me push on
For now that’s all I can ask for.

Long distance relationships can be hard. Both to your mind as well as your body. But like every other relationships – including non-distance ones – effort have to be made to sustain it. Love helps, and being in love is the best feeling there is, no doubt about it, but it still sucks when we want to be together and for some reason can’t. This is for all the lovelorn fools out there who, like me, are in a long distance relationship.
