Distance

Can I hug you but one more time? Can I hold you for an infinity?

The day is too long without you, the evenings too short. The commute that separates us is a crushing rubber band whose grip on my heart grows tighter with every step you take, nearly failing but for a delicate respite when you return. 

And it's never long enough.  

And it's never soon enough.  

Don't go too far. 

Don't go at all.
