Somewhere on the other side of this wide night

and the distance between us, I am thinking of you.

The room is turning slowly away from the moon.



This is pleasurable.  Or shall I cross that out and say

it is sad?  In one of the tenses I singing

an impossible song of desire that you cannot hear.



La lala la.  See?  I close my eyes and imagine the dark hills I would have to cross

to reach you.  For I am in love with you



and this is what it is like or what it is like in words.

This poem is genius and worth so much more than the crap comments above.
A love poem, it deals with physical separation of lovers; you can\'t stop thinking about someone, even though they\'re miles away. The middle section plays with your head and senses / tenses, screwing with your mind - like love does, right? - typical Duffy stuff.
But it\'s the end that gets me every time - she acknowledges that words can\'t capture feelings with complete accuracy every time; but they are the best we have sometimes and I think she does a damn fine job!

You\'re a poem about someone that is deceased or unreachable.
