from afar.

from afar.

A Poem by leinahtan
"

this is too funny, another one of my introverted methods to break the ice. a poem written in resent for transferring my friend to another place in the office. lol

"
from afar.

distant, too far away
to say i need you to stay
beside my side
and hold these freezing hands
for i couldn't stand this solitaire game,
i couldn't call out your name.
why did they allow me such pain?
what would they gain
for rearranging the chairs,
why do they care
if i want to kiss your hair
and if i wanted to stare
at your eyes at a kissing distance?
or write my secrets, for instance,
to your lips or feel the touch
of your fingertips,
playing softly over my palm,
like a guitarist strumming a calm tune
from the melodies of my heart
but you aren't here! you aren't near,
and your distance draws out a tear,
but i can only sigh, and i can only cry
at the back of my eyes,
i can't help it. i do nothing but sit
and watch you like a star,
glancing, glittering, admiring
the beauty that you are...

from afar.

I used not to do some capitalizations also. ahahaha But I for some reason, I changed instantly, maybe I changed when I had the job of writing articles. AHAHAHAHA

So right now, I have a different signature for my poems. xD

This poem just makes me miss school even more. I hope to go back next semester. I miss this kinda scenes. ahahahaha

Distance also creates beauty :) :) :) A long-ranged kiss, just imagine :)

You've written and explained this beautifully.
The rhyme is carefree, and I love the way you are too lazy to add certain punctuation haha :3 Thanks for sharing.

When you Snape, "beside my side" it breaks the flow. You should use 'at my side' or 'near my side'

A lovely write.

Reasons that we have set the tone for what we feel and how we feel sets the tone for what we write. Some things mean more than we realize.
