Far-away Mountains

I can never measure
this gap we hold
with even the longest tape
found on planet Earth.

I can never finish
this marathon
of closing the distance
between us two.

I can never penetrate
this sky high wall
of liquid nitrogen
that has risen.

I can never comprehend
the reason why
this constant drive in me
will never seath.

I can only persevere
in this race
and hope that one day
I can be beside you...

All over again.
