the love language of social distancing

Tue, 04/21/2020 - 15:26 -- avn77

quality time and physical touch

my two love languages, forced to hide

forced into a space six feet apart,

five hundred miles and two computer screens away

social distancing from my bedroom floor

tired eyes staring into the blue light of the phone

empty words and blurry video calls

my love languages have become

screen time and virtual touch
