Poetry

From Smiles to Miles

Promises to send pictures everyday,
Promises to never let go and stay,
Promises to share all that is done,
All broken in less than a month.

On two different paths we both set out,
Oblivious of our own whereabouts,
Hoping in future they'll converge into one,
But who knew what was next to come?

The frustration, the fights, the insecurity,
Sleepless nights, eyes swollen and misty,
Yet we sailed through with optimism renewed,
Praying that the stars had a plan for us two.

"Let's be there for each other whenever need be", we said,
"Let Distance not bring us misery", we said,
And while we chose to believe that it'll make our hearts grow fonder,
The truth both of us knew was that Proximity is the only Power.
