2000 Miles

I see you in my dreams.
I run,
Screaming,
Calling out for you.
My skin burns.
My heart is frozen.
I know only you can heal me.
But you're two thousand miles away.
I know if I reach you,
I can live again.
Your touch can heal my charred skin.
Your kiss can warm my soul.
But you're two thousand miles away.
-
I know you can turn this hell into a nightmare.
You can make it only a dream.
You can wake me up,
Save me from this life I've lived.
But you're two thousand miles away.
-
I scream for you.
I long for you.
But you'll never hear my cries.
I wonder if I'll ever reach you.
I wonder if I'll reach you in time.
You're two thousand miles away.

Nice poem. Came deep from the heart. I like that the reader can tell where your coming from, from the core of your heart and vividly picture the scene in there mind
moving...distance and time truely can take you so far away...you wonder if they will ever come back
