The Prompt – Distance

Welcome back Sara, me and my writing have missed you!

I always fancied a long distance relationship.
Waiting by the phone for the nightly call.
Planning snatched weekends when our schedules allow.
Letters and postcards just to keep in touch.
The bittersweet parting at railway stations.
Fevered kisses hello and goodbye.
Not having to share every moment but cherishing the ones we do share.
Too romantic? Not realistic?
The reality?
Fuming because he’s forgotten to call – again!
Having to cancel a weekend together because of work, family or football.
Checking the post several times, disappointed he hasn’t written – again!
Nearly missing the train home because you both overslept.
No kissing this weekend – you’ve got a cold sore or he’s got manflu.
Arguing the moment you get together and spending a frosty weekend together.
Watching the relationship fade away to nothing without really ending things.  
Maybe I don’t really want a long distance relationship after all!

  1. It really does sound romantic in the first half of your post Jo, but I think you're right, the reality would be a very different kettle of fish! #theprompt

  2. Love it, I suspect the second half is definitely closer to reality! And, thank you for your lovely words at the start 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x
