That Place Next To You

Where I am now, this is where I want to be.
The trees rustle and twinkle against the blue sky and my heart aches at so much beauty.

I know I’m not much, not like all the other girls. But I want you to know that I loved you. I loved you more than the moon loves to chase the sun in an endless game.
I’ll cherish the sweet moments that we never got to have.
My love is pink tinged sorrow.

But I’m smiling now as I sit in front of the wide river made of tears that flows through my perfect world. My hands trace the gentle rhythmic waves in the water.

I imagine my hand in yours and how when I look up nothing but light shines from within us.

I wish we could be like that. I would have a place in your world and you would in mine. And that place next to you, is where home is.

That place next to you is why I smile.

So stay with me, just a little longer and let me pretend that we can be together.
Let me imagine you standing here with me. Don’t move… or else the gentle breeze will chase you away.

I only have this. Just this one memory.
I’ll place my memory in the world here with me and although its fuzzy, I love it all the same. Because I know that you will fade away altogether soon but I always have right now.

Watch over me, love me and I’ll return the favour with all of my broken heart.
I’m just this simple girl with one wish. I wish for you to know me.

To know that I was always there waiting for you to look me in the eye but it’s okay, because in my world I am sitting by this river with my memory of you.

So stay with me please, and I can be in this place next to you.

I’ve had writers block for the past three weeks! Arrggh so hopefully this is some-what okay.

I always make poems and stories up in my head even when I’m at parties or on a public bus, so when inspiration comes I pull out my notebook and pen that are practically glued to me and begin writing.

    For a simple girl…you have the biggest HEART and whoever is the reciever is one lucky person.
    This is beautiful…even through your pain and tears, one can see all that LOVE within you.

  • Thank you very much, all your words… they are so kind and I appreciate every last one of them :) The reason I write is for people like you. Who want to delve into other worlds..full of emotion, whether those emotions are good or bad. You’ve made my day with this comment and I will remember it for a very long time.
