  1. Distance is a state of darkness
    Where your eyes are open
    But the head is just pitch black
    And you try to keep your eyes close
    Or wish you couldn’t see anything at all.
  2. Distance is a shade of black.
    It makes electric shocks travel through body
    Until you two stand at opposite ends
    With cans filled with blood
    And a thin thread attaching hearts.
  3. Distance is a state of loneliness,
    The L standing still with it’s back straight,
    Siting and waiting for things to happen
    A state that leaves no space to rest
    Even when all you are doing is resting.
