The distance is too much
if I cannot feel your breath
on my cheek
My own voice echoes
in my head
and in this room
empty without you
is it really me I hear?
I'm left here wondering
do you miss me
do you wish you were here?
are you really there
Don't answer
if the truth would hurt
In this distance
this eternity of space
my mind is left racing
bruised by lonliness
band-aided with jealousy
do you miss me?
Can you hear me?
