I feel the distance growing between us. See the smirk in your eyes as you hear my hopes are dashed.
I feel the blazing loss of love arising in the place where love once stood. Now broken down to barely tolerable.
You are the night to my life now. The glowing moon against my sun. The harsh cold of a land awash in stars.
I despise what we’ve become. Worlds stand between us now. Too many seas to cross.
Perhaps I’ve lost the fight to swim to you across the oceans. My mind has moved on.
And yet, my heart is still yours despite the yearning I have to be free of your embrace.
