To Love Somebody Too Far Away

heartPhoto stares back into my eyes, my eyes staring into the eyes in the photo;
But does she know?

And I could literally raise the very sun with crow of fire, fluff the feathers
Of my desires!

But does she, so far away, know I want to show my love from cove of soul;
My treasure trove?

heartSame world, but worlds apart play part in ripping my heart apart so soon
As I start to stare…

But I can’t help myself; staring leads to an imagined life, feeds the fantasy,
Never satisfies need.

But does she know? Can she see? Does she look at me, too, as I look at her
Far away every day?

heartAh, maybe the imagining is better? No, and neither can the letter replace
Fetters of distance.

And my God, it hurts … To love somebody so far away

    1. Oh my! What an insightful and poignant question! In fact, I’d like to invite my followers to answer this very question you ask: Does it hurt to love someone far away, or does it hurt more to love someone so near yet so far?

      NOTE TO FOLLOWERS: CHALLENGE IN ABOVE QUESTION… Answer in prose, poetry, poetic prose, photography, art work, etc.!

      Thank you, Kally!
