ODE TO A LONG DISTANCE LOVER
When it is all said and told
Our love is not of this world.
Suffering is the foundation
By which our love has flourished, survived and becomes forged in steel,
Not just for our time on earth
But for eternity.
Such love cannot be defined,
Though we both know we have tried.
If we ascended into heaven
Would we share a greater bond?
If we were damned to hell
Could the hot fires be felt and be more real
Than that which our hearts endure
From the unhappy tyranny of distance?
And......all the while
Time passes us by
Just a constant pining desire.
