Back On The Loop

And here we go again, back on the loop.

How can people in a long-distance relationship be strong enough not to long for their partner? How do they manage to not miss them every day? Do they distract themselves, too, like I do? Do they act as if they’re not waiting for their messages?

Every day, my heart breaks because I am not with you, even if I never met you. The sadness and longing will only ease once I’m able to be with you. It will only be easy once I’m able to look into your eyes for the first time. It will only ease once I watch you sleep beside me. When will it come? Until when will my heart be in misery over missing you?

We both have busy lives, but how can I still think of you every second? I have things to do, but why do I still see your face in front of me? I have a lot of plans, but why do I still wait for you?

I close my eyes and start counting from one to infinity until the infinity is no longer infinity, or until it’s not a loop anymore. I’ll be holding on to your promises and waiting for the day that we’ll be together. I’ll hold on to this longing until I no longer need to long for your presence.

I look at people's faces, random photos, and places and think, "What If I was there?" "What If it was me?" https://mytangerinenam.medium.com/
