Distance didnt show up on the first day or the second,
Distance threatened it way in on the third day or the fourth day,
It came and sat down, cross legged, at the centre of the head,
Kept mumbling its toxic spells like a possessed child(rocking bavk and forth),
It cleared off old names, endearments and memories,
Subtly and slowly, with a ninja warrior like stealth(we didn’t even know it was there),
It expanded and sat heavy like sumo wrestler, in the space where you once sat(not cross legged, in a squat, waiting to spring off at the first sign of discomfort),
Distance made people forget things,gave us selective amnesias, made us hypersensitive and over anxious and unreasonable,
Distance wanted everything,(the love, the care, the lust, all the people and the relationships)
Distance always claimed the prize,
It summoned Silence to finish the task it began,
Silence arrived,hurried over to the heart, pinned its flag there and made a fortress,
The lub-dubs slowed down, the lubs stopped, the dubs stopped,
Distance had had its prey!
Distance finally conquered,
Yet another victory!
