A World Apart

There is a distance between us
 
That is neither too great nor too small
 
So why is it then, that I feel it is much too great
 
And certainly not small enough
 
Especially when there are more days than I can count
 
Where I feel as if I could start walking
 
And that I would do so without end
 
Even if in doing so it would only bring me
 
Barely a fraction of that insufferable distance closer to you
 
 
 
I open the door to the recesses of my mind and I’m there
 
Right there next to you in less then a heartbeat
 
And oh it’s such a wonderfully indescribable sensation
 
But if I open my eyes the door manages to lock itself tightly
 
Shutting me out of my fantasy where we finally meet
 
Leaving me with a memory of a nonexistent memory
 
And this leaves me with the distance between us
 
That is neither too great nor too small
 
Except to me it feels as if
 
You are an entire world away
