Distance (Till we become Strangers)

October 25, 2016

There is distance 

 

Within the field and spaces between us, 

 

There is great distance 

 

Somewhere between then and now, there is great distance and I cannot get closer, 

Because as I move in, you move out 

And so as a result we remain apart,  

 

'Why we acting like were strangers... Fumbling we aint strangers....

'You were one of the first to make me believe in my first sixteens...'

'Even though we grew apart, were still a partnership...'

'Why we acting like were strangers' 

Echos in my head 

....

 

And I'm not sure why there is distance 

But there is 

The distance says so much or maybe nothing at all

The distance leaves me feeling restless and misplaced 

Lost and guilty of wrongs

The distance makes me reflect 

The distance is unsettling 

 

Although I seek for restoration 

and Unity

We cannot restore 

Well mainly because you choose to remain so 

Maybe there are others who have continued 

to wedge this gap 

Continued to pull us 

With their words in your head 

They pushed you further 

 

But how could I blame them   

This distance is my fault 

I take responsibility 

for maybe  the lack of appreciation i had shown 

and now I bare the consequence 

As they say, you never know a good thing until its gone 

 

This distance that I want to jump across

That I want to pull together 

But don't know how to 

Or maybe its not worth it

As you are happy where you are

or at least seem to be 

Although this distance is tearing me 

This distance is good for you 

And if it good for you, 

I will take the ache for your freedom of me 

and so we can continue as we now are

 

Distant, with this great distance 

till we become strangers

Words and Thoughts 

This page is for some of my writings, many of which i would usually keep on my personal devices, but recently i have had the urge to want to share them in a public space, to put them on this blog. Many of them are written in the moment with no thought, just how i felt or was thinking  at the time. Some are pieces from years ago, some are songs, some are poems, stories, advise, reviews, my views, music stuff like recording processes etc. anything really. They are words and thoughts.
