A Poem Long-Distance Relationships in College

I don’t smile when you’re not here: 

A poem about long-distance relationships in college. 


Another dark and cloudy day

rightfully so,

it personifies my mood.

Another day I do not smile 

rightfully so,

I do not smile when you’re not here.

Another daylong rainstorm

rightfully so,

like raindrops tears fall down my cheeks.

Five days pass

rightfully so,

every day is a blur.

A sunny weekend comes

rightfully so,

I sometimes see you.

Happiness like a day

rightfully so,

it comes and goes.
