If we were a storm, you’d be thunder and I’d be lightning.

When it rains we’ll always be close to each other. You can see me and I can hear you.

When its raining at two fourty six in the morning, you wake up because of the sound of rain and out of nowhere you room lights up from your window.

Just for that brief moment, you are surrounded by me. Moments later I hear thunder crack and I know it’s you proclaiming your love to me.

You’re my thunder and I’m your lightning.


It’s not fair. It’s not fair how you’re over there, and I’m over here.

It’s not fair that I don’t know how your breath tastes or how your hand feels.

It’s not fair that we’re light years apart, yet we’re under the same moon.

It’s not fair that our eyes can’t meet, and our feet can’t touch.
– J.M



I wrap myself in a blanket,
And pretend that its your arms,
Because maybe if you were here,
Things wouldn’t be so hard.

I rest my head on the pillow,
And pretend that its your chest,
Because maybe if you were here,
My heart would ache less,

I close my eyes and sigh,
And pretend these miles don’t exist,
Because they overwhelm me completely,
All I want to feel is your kiss.



I mean every word I said,
and every tear that fled,
i never meant to make you cry,
the beauty may seem over,
what would it do to hold her,
i know its on your mind,
you will always matter,
love may seem to shatter,
but my love,
will always flow,
you should know,
you should know,
who really knows what it is,
we all know love exists,
your eyes are no exception,
you own the deepest part of this stupid breaking heart,
that cannot find direction,
you will always matter,
love may seem to shatter,
but my love,
will always flow,
you should know,
you should know,
don’t walk away



Have you ever met a person,
who at first glance,
you’re not attracted to,
but then you talk,
and with every word,
every smile,
every laugh,
they become more beautiful,
until you can’t believe,
there was a moment,
you didn’t think they were



The scariest thing about the distance is you don’t know whether they will miss you or forget about you.
– The Notebook



How far is too far?
They say numbers don’t lie
But so do our feelings
How does someone know it something you can’t pull off?
You can’t reach, you can’t hold, you can’t keep
“He wouldn’t hear you from here.”
I didn’t know love has to have hands
I didn’t know love has to hear, has to see
When I saw you, I didn’t remember how far was the distance between us
Between our love
But you know you don’t have to be here
-Axl Rose Estrella



Whenever you feel lost in time,
place your hand over your heart,
imagine it is with mine,
and with every beat I hope you feel more alive.

Just think of me until I arrive.
-S. Marie



I lay in my bed and think about you.
I love you so much’ I don’t know what to do.
I feel your warmth at my side.
The pain in my heart moves to my eyes.
So far away, yet always so near.
You are the reason I am still here.

I await the times when we can talk
I await the times we can finally hold hands and walk.
To feel you for real… so close to me.
The happiest person in the world is what you would make me.

Your eyes shine like a million suns.
You shine more brightly than anyone.
Your smile so sweet can’t help but make me smile.
It stops my world, even for a little while.
I await the time when my hand is in yours,
To hear you say those 3 little words.

There are still no words I can say to describe.
My heart, it aches; and my eyes, they cry,
But when we talk, my heart flies.
You always wipe away the tears I cry.

Even though you aren’t here,
And I miss you so much, my dear,
I’ll love you forever and ever.
I’ll always love you, my far away lover.
-Janna Rutty



There are a thousand things
that I love about you.
When I’m with you
I want to take in every moment
And when we’re apart
Every moment
feels like forever.

So, when missing you
almost becomes too much
And the distance seems
almost too hard to bear
When my longing for you
Threatens to drive me mad
You help me make it through.

I take comfort in thinking of your smile
like a ray of sunlight bursting through the dark clouds.
I take comfort in thinking of your laughter
Which is more beautiful than a thousand songs.
I take comfort in thinking of your arms round me
A blanket of the sweetest solace in the world.
I take comfort in thinking of your love
That brings light to my soul
and joy to my heart.


My only wish
Aside from being in your arms
Is that you take comfort, too,
In thinking of my love for you.

Even if I cannot be wrapped In your arms tonight I will be wrapped in your love. For I have made you a part of me… that part that fills the empty, that part that fights the lonely.

I love you today, as I have from the start, And I will love you forever, with all my heart



I love your feet that carried your soul to mine and I love the kiss that made them one

– Emily McBride


Once you fall in love,

no distance is too long,

no darkness is too dark,

no sadness is too mad.


Once you fall in love time no long matter,

forever in a pattern. Once you fall in love you love with all you,

have, despite what people may have to add.

– Bridget



So I might count every star to where you are.

And write you metaphors in millions with all the skies.

But really, you just need to know; I miss you.

I’ve still never seen stars like the ones in your eyes.

– Nicora Kladsflem
