you, me and the distance

Our relationship does not solely consist
of you and me, for years it has been
you, me and the wretched distance between us,
I’ve grown to love you more
in your absence,
and for no reason at all
I have also grown to hate you,
it’s the fault of distance,
not yours
not mine,
I often want to punch you in the face
declaring MK-style fights
in the wee hours of the night,
I hate you,
and the distance makes me
depraved and pathetic,
commanding you to never speak to me again
in an effort to make you contact me more,
tell me how your day’s been,
because I feel like I no longer know you,
it’s the distance, blame it on him
when I’m a demanding asshole,
a selfish wretch
blame it on him,
not me,
not you.

I’m done romanticizing these miles,
there is no poetry latent in these dire days
the blessed plane rides we cannot afford,
I’m too broke and depleted,
for romance, the distance
has sucked me dry of my wherewithal
but not my love,
and if it ever does,
the blame wouldn’t be
on the distance.
