Every Mile Between Us

After a twelve hour drive

I could truly feel

every mile between us.

Leaving was already hard,

but feeling myself get

further and further from you

hurt more than I ever

thought it would; thought it could.

700 miles doesn’t feel that far

until you actually travel it

and have to race away

putting every mile between us.

Before my trip,

the distance was but nothing

but now 700 miles feels

impossibly far away.

And far as it feels,

at least distance is measurable.

The real pain comes from

how far into time it will be

until I see you again.

Because that is something

that I just don’t know.
