Loving From Afar

No matter where you go - you cannot run from something that’s within you.

Within me I found you yesterday

even in a different state of mind

my mind traced steps back to you

as if theres been a bridge waiting for me to pass

In a different realm of reality

I thought this is where I’d come to escape you

how did I long for you

I could hear the sound of your touch

I felt safe in the memory of your company

the company of you that was non-existent

you were coming in and out of my emotions

telling me even here

you weren‘t leaving within me

where must I go to find a space to love where you’re not there - also
