Distant

 

Your eyes are distant
Can you hear me?
You’re here with me,
But are you there?

I can see you
Standing before me
A million miles away
Existing, but barely.

    1. I’m glad that you think it’s worth knowing more about.

      As someone who struggled with mental health concerns like depression, escapism has become a defense mechanism I am recovering from.

      The prompt from daily post “Distant” is something I can really relate to, but in this case I challenged myself to write about it from the perspective of those around me.

  2. I enjoyed this Liz. At first glance, feels like a question asked by so many spouses as they see their significant other “selectively listening.” However, the gentle almost sad tone implies a sadness and sense of impending loss.
