From A Distance - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

Love, the closer we get
The more blinded i become
How painful it is to confeess
How weak i am under the sun

From a distance, i can see
Not what is true or what is false
But the visions that comfort me
When i'm a prisoner in my walls

Don't blame me for what i am
Dreaming with half-closed eyes
From a distance, i can understand
Better than in these constant fights

Every picture must have a frame
Has the artists gone out of control?
This broken masterpiece of shame
Must first be looked at from a hole

Sure, everyone's got their flaws
It's hard to concentrate on it for long
But in order to analyze such thoughts
We must realise they're not so wrong

From a distance, i can be
Anything you imagine, my dear
So think of all the possibilities
When i'm not someone you fear

Oh, I can show you the light
That i've certainly always had
You'll never know till you try
I wasn't always painted black

There's a distance between our worlds
It's something we've always known
But just because we're of distant words
It doesn't mean you're on your own
