Split Continent

I spend my time shedding tears for the people I love on the other side of the continent,

All the while pondering where I truly belong on this split continent that is my heart,

I am aware that millions of people live apart from loved ones, at any given time,

I am not in a unique situation, but this does nothing to soothe the splitting inside of me

Knowing that no matter which side I choose, someone will be left with a void in some way.

Splitting…severing at the seems, who can cope with the distance?
