The distance trauma

It results in terrible ordeals of abstinence,
since usually those that you love the most
and would most eagerly be in close contact with
are farthest out of touch and most impossible to reach,
which must inevitably lead to tribulations,
most atrocious sufferings and insufferability at large.
And what is worse: it is a kind of problem
that, once it's there you can't get rid of it.
But what is distance then to love?
Love neutralizes and dissolves dimensions,
thought transcends and is superior to matter,
nothing can inhibit thought or keep it within limitations,
even less so when, as usually is the case,
it is propelled and motivated and kept flying
by the basic force of life called love,
which is the one thing, maybe, that exceeds the speed of light.
You can control thoughts, concentrate them, guide them,
but when they are moved by love there's nothing that can stop them.
Distances like all dimensions suddenly become nonsensical
as trivial nonentities to be ignored and bypassed,
while your love is all that matters,
keeping you and life alive and constituting
all the nourishment for your immortal universal soul.
