A Poem by Courtney

Distance makes the heart grow fonder,
But who said that was always good?
When you part, feelings grow stronger
And can morph your past memories.
You might idolize the good times
And let your heart swell with longing,
Forgetting why you ran away.
Each misstep and each happenstance
Led you to make your final choice,
But that aching pain in your chest
Reminds you that you were in love.
And how could love turn out so bad?
So you gather remnants of love;
Distance glues and mends the pieces,
Then second chances turn to thirds.
More glue fixes fewer pieces
And soon enough the rest will fade,
Leaving a husk of glue and pain.

Long distance relationships turn out to be very interesting. They can either turn out to be good or just plain awful. My advice is that it only works if both people are truly committed and are able to properly communicate about anything. It's about sharing the good, the bad and the ugly with each other and not closing each other out. Love is a wonderful thing, whether it be near or far, and we all deserve a dose of happily ever after :)
