The distance between us

Everyday i search the world

for a guy like you 

starting close to home 

and with the people in view

the farther away i get from home 

the better the guys seem to get

then i found you

so far away from me

too far to be together

but so close we’ve become already 

growing closer with every word 

but the distance stays the same

the more we talk the more we wish

to be with each one day

But then out of nowhere 

my anxiety kicks in

i start to cry 

knowing I may never meet you

know you may leave and find someone better

someone closer

the distance between us 

keep us apart

when all I want is to be beside you

always beside you.

    A touching, emotive write.
    I hope you get to meet, finally have him in sight.
