Long Distance

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 7/29/2019

Long distance is
Reaching
To touch your face
Then realizing
That my fingertips can only
Brush
The screen.
Long distance is
Rubbing my thumb
Along the back of my
Own hand
Because it’s
Empty
Without your hand to hold.
Long distance is
Looking for your face
Every time I’m in a crowd.
It’s looking up
With a smile, to share
A joke, or trade
Glances
But you’re not there to
Catch
My eye.
Long distance is
Knowing I belong with you
But waiting
Until I can be there.
Long distance is
Being with you in
Spirit
Until your arms
Can enfold me.
Long distance is
Tearful goodbyes
In crowded airports
It’s hushed
I-love-yous
It’s 2am talks
It’s cramming in activities
Because there’s never
Enough time.
Long distance is
Heaven and hell
In one breath.
Long distance is
Beauty and pain.
But long distance is
Something I love
To do with you
Because though the distance
Hurts
The pain is worth it
To see your smile
It’s worth it for
That first hug inside the airport
Where the whole world
Melts away
And all I feel
Is your love.
Long distance means
That someday, soon
There won’t be a distance
Because you and I
Are willing to
Go the distance
For each other
So that there can be
An “Us”
Always together.
Long distance makes
The reunions sweeter
And hugs longer
It makes our love stronger
So for that
Long distance is
One of the greatest
Blessings of
My life
