love at a distance

“Nobody loves you anymore”

– communist torture

How do you survive

when love’s at a distance

no longer burns

like a fire in your eyes

you wander like a vagabond

on the streets of your own heart

until the sun goes down

in one lonely, lonely sky

and you pass the night

you pass the night

you pass the cold,

cold night

with tears that trade

the distance, for sleep

and for sighs
