To the One I Cannot be with at This Time.
No matter how I try, I cannot get to you. And believe me, I have tried.
I have sought every possible way of crossing closed borders without getting caught.
I have stood empty handed in every airport hoping for a flight that was never called.
I have calculated how long it would take me to walk to you (approximately 55 days and 7 hours) and imagined your face as I arrive on your doorstep. How it would light up with your smile that melts me every time. How you would pick me up in your arms. How you would never set me down again.
I have cried rivers hoping they would become oceans that would somehow close this land between us.
I have yelled and screamed and argued and bargained and still, I am found defeated and it kills me that I cannot be with you at this time but this, my darling, is how I will love you in the distance…
For the long distance lovers held apart by distance at this time, I wrote this for you, full article over at Elephant Journal, link below x
