The Distance

I don’t need you – please stay.

I keep at arm’s length, as though I were a ghost stuck between two worlds. I linger in this moment and time is frozen. I have overanalyzed reality – cut it into little pieces – and now everything lies shattered; deformed.



The Distance story deals with that very state; how one’s experience of the human condition leaves its mark. It is a story which explores both closeness and togetherness, leaving plenty of room for definitions.
