Distance

Distance

I do not measure distance by miles traveled by a plane

Or the length of road crossed by a train.

It’s also not the days that pass before you receive my letter

Not even the growing phone bills to call you

can describe it any better.

It’s when you and I are on the same room but we’re not talking

Trying to catch your sight and reach you

But alas! You’re gone again,

I’m left hanging.
