“The Distance”

In the distance

I see you standing there

In the distance

Unknown are your cares

In the distance

Wish your lips could share

In the distance

What your soul would bare

Closing the distance

I run to you over there

Closing the distance

Into your eyes I stare

Closing the distance

Hand gripping your hair

Closing the distance

Your life, I can’t spare

One Comment on “THE DISTANCE

  1. Original poem ended with the line, “My heart is your spare.” It was changed to the current line, “Your life, I can’t spare,” on 3/8/2023 because that line rang truer to P.S. Kessell’s writing themes and style.
