The stars in your eyes
showing me how far away
you really were
from me,

My thoughts of defraction
bending your light,
scattering your essence
into thousands of particles
arched across my mind
in something less than
a parsec,

Distance is relative
as is the time we spend
apart, from each other
the intensity of your amplitude
bringing your voice
no more than a whisper
a gentle wave of sound

Closer to my understanding
of you
