distance for me
does not make the heart
grow any fonder
but nor
does out of sight
mean out of mind.

you stay right here
in my head
(if i had to pinpoint a place
I'd say you're somewhere above
my right eye, just shy of the temple)
and here you have power
that you would never really have
except in moments like these
when i give it to you.

and because you're right here
i think
about you, and about me, and about possibilities
and inevitably i decide
that it's not meant to be
because why would someone like you
want anything to do
with someone like me
