Love Poem: Far, Far Away

Far, Far Away

Far, far away, high above and beyond, 
Lies the purple horizon where sea meets the sky 
And the Gods all play chess in Olympian clouds, 
Leaving minds of mere mortals to wondering why.

Four Horsemen and Satan with time on their hands 
Wasting light years in darkness, entrenched in a game; 
Playing poker with blood crusted mortuary slabs 
For the souls of the dead in a place with no name.

Back here, in earnest, this stuff doesn't matter 
For legends and myths hold no space in my heart, 
Room only for how much I miss you and love you 
And cursing the distance that keeps us apart...
