half the world away

i find shelter in

the darkness


in your words

perhaps that is

all one

ever needs


there might be

a thousand miles between us

but your laugh finds its way

to the curves of my smile

snuggles into the edges of my lips

and remains against my consent

and i suppose

i wouldn’t have it

any other way


i clutch onto

my worn down teddy bear

as if somehow

your love

had invested itself inside

i cling on

wishing it were your warmth instead

in my arms



half the world away

but tonight

i feel the distance a little less

i’m by your side

in your thoughts

and in mine

perhaps that is


that matters
