My arms ache to hold you near

Published by at 3:12 pm under Long Distance Love Poems

My arms ache to hold you near
but my mind remembers all the miles between.
My lips feel that you aren”t here to kiss
but my heart can”t reach that far.
How can you be so far away
and yet so close?
How can I need you so much
and yet have to realize you are out of my grasp?
How can love be so possible
if love-making is not?
Why us?
Why now?
Why like this?
Why the pain?
When will it stop?
We both want.
We both need,
and yet neither of us gets
or gives
because we can”t.
“If only…”
“I wish…”
we say,
but the miles remain long
and as cold as the lonely nights.

    I met my love on the net and soon we’re gonna marry soon so there’s always hope. Never give up some days are hard but if your love is strong and its meant to be with the help of God u can be happy!

    I love this poem, you should keep writing. I write poetry myself, but this one you can really feel your feelings…. I’m in a long distance relationship myself, and it is tough to be away from the one you love. But all you have to do is have trust and faith and it will get you through, I’ve been dating this guy for almost 5 months and we hate being apart from one another but we keep reminding and telling each other that we will soon be together, and once we are together things will be alot more better then they are not…. So remember don’t give up, if you truely love the person you will soon be with them when the time is right!!!!
