Long Distance Love Affair

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.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
