"I have something to tell you when I see you."
Is all I managed a thousand miles from home.
A home of my heart,
Encased by love.

I couldn't wait to see you,
To tell you the secret we both know.
As indescribable as time,
Fenced by only the speed of this traveling train.
I knew it before you called me:
“I’m going to meet you half way home.”
And unknowingly to both of us,
They were the last words I heard from your mouth.

Never have I felt so guilty, culpable,
For betraying my own heart with time.
When I just wished that if only I had that chance to tell you,
That simple something from a thousand miles away.

I would have only needed to say that
“I love you.”
:)

*sighs*...but what is beauty, when there's no one to be with to enjoy it together with?

That is quite beautiful. But I'm still quite bemused as to why you put this poem in full as a comment on my poem... [link]
