Not Defined By Distance

Updated on July 21, 2012

Love at a distance

It's a weird kind of thing

It's not defined by sex

Nor bound by a ring

It simply is

or it isn't

It exists

or it doesn't

It's very hard to come by

Harder to understand

How you can feel connected

Without even holding hands

It's kind of like a soul mate

Without the physical need

But still implanted in us

Like two identical seeds

They grow with each other

Otherwise, can't be whole

An empty shell, a hollow log,

A doll with half a soul

You don't need to see them

You just feel it in your core

That this person is necessity,

That my heart beats with yours.
