Far Reaches

It takes a lot of strength, perseverance, determination, those intangible pieces of you

It takes all of those in continuous, consistent, strenuous, and immense measures

to deal with distance

trust, communication, patience, understanding, and peace

to deal with the absence

of the one your heart beats a little faster for

your breath leaves you a little for

palms sweaty and anxious for

that same one your body aches for in the middle of the night

the same one with the only method to calm the fire in your soul

voices can reach many distances, prayers can cross the entire earth

those hugs and embraces we need

are the hardest to wait for when the arms are so far away
