a poem for u

sipping this beer

wishing you were here

trying not to feel overly

sentimental

because i know you are

doing just fine.

 

testing me with

jealousy

trying not to become

the person you know i am not

 

trying to stay

the person you love.

 

i miss you every day

and i hope you miss me too.

every 12 hours i am awake

is a weight.

light or heavy, it still falls

 

i wonder-

are we strong enough

to catch it.

 

i realize-

i have to be confident in me

to be confident in you.

 

-long distance relationships
