2,527 miles
13,342,560 feet
160,110,720 inches
to your heartbeat

different state
different city
different coast
miss you, miss me

today here
yesterday there
it’s hard to talk
but I don’t care

you make me happy
that’s all that counts
I think I quite like
having you around

Miles and miles keep us apart
Miles of resting hope
Miles of love for eachother
Miles of everything between us

Perhaps they are miles of heartache
Miles of millions of people
With only inches of kindness to spare
Miles and miles of discomfort

Excitement and fear
Loneliness? Perhaps.
Miles between us
Miles of what will never be

Miles and miles between me and you
Miles don't mean anything
Egeria Litha Feb 3
Needles inside our veins
Reminds me of your heroine phase

We stare at each other’s blood as it swirls into a bag
Earlier, we were taking hits and drags
For the first time all night
I was finally relaxed

Draining my life force with you

The nurse asks us, “Are you two a couple?”

     NO!  YES!
In unison, we chime
his girlfriend is not supposed to know
“Perplexing but alright, Here are two tickets to a comedy show!
       No smoking for an hour
and drink lots of water."
Stumbling off the blood truck,
It strikes me
He is old enough to be my father
If he had a baby as a teen
I could have been his daughter

He tells me, “I need to ***.”
Yeah right, so I peek
And see him through the glass wall
On his knees
As he locks eyes with me
He doesn’t know how to bleed
His lungs want to breathe or
pass out on the floor
to compensate for a sacrifice he made
A couple of miles back

how come i'm always tired
when i want so badly to be awake

how come time seems to move slower
when i feel like i'm going so fast

so fast...
s o   fast. . .
s  o     f a s t  .  .  .

everything is moving too fast
my mind, my heart, my body

i look in the mirror and i wonder
what's happening up there

up there...
u p  there. . .
u  p   t h e r e .  .  .

my head, it's racing,
too many miles per minute

it's racing, too slow, too fast, too slow, too fast
and i just want to hit the brakes

Miles away the distance......
But still we are close.
Your love is like a lighthouse,
Which navigates me to arose.
I can't overlook that smile
Which is engraved in my heart.
My love for you will never sink,
No matter how much we are apart.

I am a traveler ;
traveling the galaxies.

I am a voyager ;
voyaging a million miles to you.

I am a traveler ;
traveling the impossibilities.

I am a voyager ;
voyaging the unbearable journey
of loving me too.
a voyager
too long in travel
too impossible of stepping on my destination
too dark for the means of loving me too

i would still love it
if the journey, is still not loving me

I wanna see you
I think, I can live without someone like you
but i can't, honestly. I feel comfortable around you
with my short hair
you told me you would fly to me,
an that me up like a million Christmas lights

Adoring your commitment
Loving your smile
Craving you 24/7
I just want to love
and appreciate you, in all ways that I can;
I would trace your face with my finger tips.
Would you let me?
Because if I could, I would travel those miles for you.

i trade money for magic,
looking for ephemeral feelings with eternal damage.
and when you're not there to save me,
i keep taking codine to stop the saline.
and there's a few things i forgot to mention,
specifically every bad intention.
i drove for miles to find you
but in the end i found myself.
that, and a couple empty bottles of jack.

I moved 300 miles away from you.
You didn't care about me, until the week before I left.
I meant everything. I went from nothing, to everything. What were you thinking?
You can't **** with my emotions like that. You knew exactly how I felt. But you still did it. Who does that?
The feelings between us may not have been real, but to me they were perfect.
I thought we felt the same, but I ended up crying in the arms of my mother.
