States away and miles apart,
we lead completely separate lives.
We no longer share the same secrets,
the same time zone.
But, that is life,
a perpetual circle of taking one step after another.
Sometimes, that means stepping away from people that we love,
not because we want to leave them,
not because we love them any less,
but because we can’t stop time from moving forward.
We can’t stop our hearts from taking us to new places.
We can’t stop life from happening,
because it will always keep on happening.
But, I know that one day it will bring me back to you,
and until then,
I will eat chicken nuggets
and think of you often.
