An Ode to Long Distance

I am trying something different this week. I have been so stressed lately that I everything I have been thinking has come out in poems. I sat down and tried desperately to write something for this blog, but nothing has been working. So, this week, I am going to be posting poetry instead of regular blog posts. I hope you enjoy it.

An Ode to Long Distance-

Dedicated to Patrick (I know you’re reading this, haha)

I know that I have a short temper which gets the best of me,

And sometimes I fail at doing things so romantically.

I hate eating dinner by myself, or watching a movie alone,

And you know how terribly awkward I can be on the phone.

I know I have a tendency to dig myself into holes,

And other times I know that I need to just be in control.

I want to make you soup when you’re not feeling well,

And I like to make you feel better when your day has been like Hell.

I don’t try to be overly dramatic, except for when I do.

And I’m nowhere near perfect, you know that is true.

I sometimes forget the things you say, but I don’t mean to offend.

And other times I go on and on about things that I can’t mend.

I text you when things get hard or happy or funny or sad,

And I know that being away from you can sometimes get bad.

I know I repeat myself more than I’d ever care to admit,

And sometimes my humor is lacking any wit.

I sometimes get lost in my thoughts, but I promise I don’t ignore.

And I occasionally get jealous, that is for sure.

I hate to feel vulnerable, but you know just what to say,

And I’d never do anything to intentionally throw this thing away.

This distance is unbearable but I bear it all for you.

For when I’ve found someone so great, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do.

  1. I’ve been having such a huge writing block as well. I started my blog with so much passion and then it just faded. I’ve been trying for weeks to write and journal but haven’t came up with anything except last night . I feel like I’m connecting with other people’s words right now. I love the poem 💙


    1. Thanks for taking the time to read it. I am glad you enjoyed it!
      Well, sometimes it takes awhile to figure out what you need or want to say. So, just don’t get too disheartened when you get writers block. For me, I just have so much going on in my mind that it’s sometimes difficult to pick out one thing to write about. Or I know what I want to write about but I struggle to find the right words on how to say it. It’s always so frustrating. But hey, now I know that poetry sometimes helps. 🙂
