About the Poem

To understand this poem, it is necessary to realize that I was in a relationship with someone via the internet, as she lived on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean. This didn't lessen our love for each other, if anything it strengthened it, but it does upset me occasionally, that I am not able to show her how much I love her. Words are indeed useless where love is concerned.

A Kiss Is Not A Kiss

words are unhelpful
with you
because you make me speechless
with overwhelming love
for me

oceans make
actions impossible
a kiss is not a kiss
without physical contact

so I resort to words
stuttering
stammering
trying to say how
much I care
but surely failing
doomed before beginning
words are useless
but they must serve me now

I like this poem because I understand what hes talking about. Right now I wish I could tell my love how much I care for her, even from 2000 miles away.
