OUR Social Distance

We’re only 2 minutes away

But we’re also an ocean of words apart

Things should honestly stay that way

Because I wouldn’t even know where to start

We’re only right down the street

But the valley of emotions keeps us at bay

I can feel that distance shrinking

But it’ll still be awhile before we see that day

Do I want things to be this way?

Certainly not

If it were up to me: we’d still be US

A union of love, acceptance, growth and trust

But that’s not the reality of the situation

‘Cause our needs required full concentration

And all of our talks and conversations

Just led to perpetual frustration

So we have to continue OUR social distance

Like the world and its current state

No hang outs, no meet ups

And no texts or calls on special dates

I hope you notice my absence

But don’t let that stunt your growth

I’m praying for change and evolution

For you and me both

Don’t wait for me.

Because I’m not waiting for you.

Continue to remain free.

And I’ll do what I need to do.

But while you remain a valley away

And I continue to stay an ocean apart

I want you to know this:

You’re missing the best part
