My tears become the stars in the sky
lighting your way.
My dreams become the songs your play
to stay awake.
Each mile takes you further away
and I am scared,
we will never meet again.
Tempted to run after you
to throw caution to the wind
to proclaim aloud the way I feel
and not to dread…..
Dread the rejection
fear the pain
I cannot speak these words.
My tongue bound with silver threads
my soul bound in an iron cage
my heart bound with brambled thorns
to keep me safe and sound.
Every mile becomes a lifetime
driving us further apart
and the whispered promises
of I’ll be back
fades to black as the curtain falls to a close
on this long distance love affair.
