Long Distance

“I don’t think I can come back anytime soon. I’m just stranded in NYC, the flights back to India aren’t functional anymore, and I’m literally surviving on three day old pizza right now!”, she groaned.


“How am I supposed to get through this indefinite pandemic without you?!”, I thought in my head. But as always, I sighed & pretended to be okay with her absence, one more time.

I saw people grumbling about being forced into long distance relationships this year, but nothing makes the heart ache more than the despair of spending an entire year with your bestfriend being miles away.
