This poem is about the love of my life. We're far away from each other and the distance keeps us apart. As painful as it is to not be able to be with him, I still love him with all I have and all I am. And I always will.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Teenage Love Poems

Long Distance Love
When it hurts so bad,
why does it feel so good?
I wish this all made sense,
I wish I understood.
Not having you here with me is tearing me up inside,
but I can't stop thinking about you no matter how hard I try.

You know how I feel about you,
and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you,
but it's so hard to do when I can't even be next to you.
Why does it gotta be so complicated?

Loving you feels so right,
but at the same time,
knowing I can't have you keeps me awake at night.
I just want this to be simple,
I just want you here with me,
to look into your eyes,
be held in your arms...then I'd truly be happy.

Right now this distance between us is out of our control,
but I'm still hoping one day soon,
I'll get what I'm wishing for.

    aww this was a very excellent poem! this is how I feel i am deeply in love with my boyfriend who lives 8 hours away. but i keep wishing that he will move back since his dad travels out here to work and there house is up for sale where they live now. the only problem is it has been up for sale for a very long time now and they can't sell it. so i keep wishing everyday. He is my first love and it figures that i would fall in love and he would move! :((( I wish the best for u and me and also everyone who read this poem because no one deserves to be seperated from the one u love! so good luck to everyone!
