Distance Makes The Heart Grow Colder

You are so far away

and I don't know how to reach you.

You've closed up

and shut me out.

In your silence,

I hear volumes

of unspoken words.

Why must you put up

these fences again?

Why must you set yourself

apart from me?

You're right here,

yet out of my touch.

How long will

this time last?

How soon till you close

this gap again?

Because this kind of distance,

only makes the heart grow colder.
