I Will Love You From A Distance

SONY DSC

Our pictures are like pretty petals scattered all over the floor

Our memories are like stars that twinkle on a dark blue sky

You have walked all over our pretty petals and stained them with dirty feet

But when the sun goes down at dusk

Hiding all the days labor in a haze

Our stars still twinkle on a dark blue sky at night

I will love you from a distance

Because each time I come close, you burn me

I will make a portrait painting of you

And adorn you with attributes you don’t possess

I will hide your flaws and paint over the pain

And make you perfect in every way

I will gaze upon you in awe

And fall in love with you over and over again

I will make memories in my head

And ask for the mercy of the dark blue sky at night

So that the stars will always twinkle in approval

I will love you from a distance
