© You Are My Favorite Self-Indulgence

Long distance relationships never work, the colloquial wisdom goes.

Not true, according to a small but growing number of social science studies. Long-distance relationships are, in many ways, stronger than relationships between couples who live together or close by, shows a new study published today in the Journal of Communication.

The edges of our distant love are softened in
the streaks of the heated blur that disguises
the passion demanded by our naked bodies.

You have turned me into a kissing masochist and
I still find it amazing you can make me dance
from miles away and change my world with your lips.
