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.
