A Thousand Miles Away

I told you I loved you
In so many ways, and
You ignored each one.
Almost selectively you
Deflected my emotions
Leaving me vulnerable to
The ricochets
From my own heart…

I told you I was leaving
And you hid, I found you
That last night and
You cried I was
Leaving you all alone,
When you had left me
All alone
Every second I was there.

And now,
A thousand miles away
A year later
I still feel the ricochets
I still see your smile
I still miss you.
But I like you more
A thousand miles away…
