The months fly by,
And my heart longs
for your touch again
Something as basic
As human interaction,
Now gone right before our eyes.
Hindered by a pandemic
We try our best
To keep each other safe
and to keep each other alive.
It's like our life is playing by like
A movie on the screen.
Separated by choice,
Out of necessity,
We fight to stay alive,
In a world taken over by the virus.
The pain cuts through every day,
And I fight hard to rise above the waters.
It's getting harder to stay away from you.
My heart still longs for you after all this time.
And I miss you terribly.
I understand we must stay apart for now,
But I don't know how long I can last.
My emotions are like a sinking ship.
I'm fighting to stay afloat.
Without you, I'm doing the best I can,
To keep me from drowning in this sea of despair.
When the coronavirus pandemic made rounds around the U.S. earlier this year, my friend I decided it was best we stay apart to protect ourselves. He's high-risk, and I'm at moderate risk.
We were very close, and last year, it was on a somewhat intimate level before we decided it was best to remain friends.
I miss him so much.
