A distance of 3mm’s

I measured it.
I thought, it’s only 3 mm’s,
I would make it fit.
Unfortunately it began to make a lot of difference.
When it rained you could not see.
But it’s only 3 mm’s,
it’s not much – surely?
So I took my ruler,
and I measured it again.
It had grown to 3 cm’s!
Or dear,
I pulled,
I cried,
I yelled out ‘WHY?’
from 3 to 33, to meters to kilometers,
I looked around,
and you were gone.
I looked at thought,
and I was alone.
It seems to me.
3 mm’s, is a far place to be.
