Miles between

They say distance makes the heart grow finder. I disagree.

Distance makes the heart forget.

Emotion means little when miles between facilitate a disconnect;

A new beginning when the old one was good enough no matter how many times the rug needed to be lifted to sweep away the broken pieces.

Now the rug is gone, torn apart thread by thread, the strain of stretching from coast to coast too great.

No matter.

Distance makes the heart grow harder.

The mind weeps instead.
