Face-to-Face

Author’s Note: This one is a product of my waiting/monitoring shift at the hemodialysis unit during my patient’s 6-hour long session last 07/06/16. Talk about intense! Napa-senti (-ish) tuloy ako! :)) 

 

Face-to-Face

It’s funny how the sight of your name

seems to trigger the start of tears.

I don’t know why,

but it always does –

I guess my heart’s just so lonely.

A message fails to do what it ought –

it does nothing to bridge distances.

Instead, it only reminds me that there is one.

There is this great distance between us,

and I can only rely on words on a screen

because for now,

I cannot see you;

I cannot hear you;

I cannot speak to you;

face-to-face.
