Quotes of the day #218

If I had to walk to get to you

it would take eight hundred and twenty-six hours

on bad days I think about it

what I might do if the apocalypse comes

and the planes stop flying

there is so much time to think

so much empty space wanting to be consumed

but no intimacy around to consume it

it feels like being stuck at a train station


and waiting

and waiting

for the one with your name on it

when the moon rises on this coast

but the sun still burns shamelessly on yours

I crumble knowing our skies are different

we have been together for so long

but have we really been together if

your touch has not held me long enough

to imprint itself on my skin

I try my hardest to stay present

but without you here

everything at its best

is only mediocre

long distance
