we've made the distances ours

we’ve made the distance ours
we’ve thrown miles between us
I murmur at your name
it bears fruit for me but I cannot
reach it on the tree
as you resemble all that I love
I would always feel new
each time I look at you
face to face

the night stretches its arms
in the darkness of dreaming
it feels for the way to you
how long will we have
these living bodies
what are we waiting for

the goodness of your smile
shapes my day
the language we have
sensitive and warm
will the earth know us

    i am sure your waiting will soon be over. i am also in a long distance relationship and honestly the waiting is hell and i can’t do it any more…there is no point to it at all and every day it just gets worse…. we are not even that far from eachother..so now i’m going to where he is so that we can meet in the easiest possible way…but only you can make it happen. you have to meet her half way….it takes two to tango.

  • well, there are also other obstacles…but, I do agree it is difficult to keep doing with no end result

    well unless one of you is married then I just can’t see how bad the obstacles can be. if she is either married or in a committed relationship that also involves children, then there is too much heartbreak on the horizon for everyone concerned and it’s best shelved as painful as that might be to you both of you right now even if you feel you just cannot live without eachother. sometimes your soulmate is married to someone else and it’s an agonising tragedy but it does happen!!

  • won’t matter much anyway, if I am on the street…everything then will be null and void

    why should it be…? if she really loves you and she is available then surely she would not allow you to be on the street……!!!

  • I’d rather not discuss the particulars here…

    ok, no problem….but if you ever want to chat theres always the bmail. don’t stress, it’s not good for you…..waiting to be with someone is the total pits….oh please, just ask me all about it…I’ve developed the patience of a saint and you probably stand more of a chance than i do anyway.

  • stress is all i got
