When you are not here
When you go to your real life
And to a real man
To whom you are called a wife

When you go to your real home
Chat in a real four-walled room
When you go to your real neighborhood
To real kids playing around the block
A real fire place, a sofa , a real clock

When you are not near
When your name is merely a shadow
No proof of ever having existed
Except in a heart already twisted

When all becomes questionable
Validity Unsustainable
Reality wearing a thousand masks
When no art can bring you back


When you are not here
The only one
who can really bring you near
is you !

It is frightening
What could remain of you
When you are not here
Or even near?

Have been here before
The wanting for someone we cannot have can be very painful indeed. Definitely know this feeling. To have The One somewhere else; with someone else and know so deep inside of my heart; my body and my soul that that person is meant to be with me...but?

Nothing in this world hurts more than knowing that once-in-a-lifetime is right there in front of you and so....not mine.

this hurt.........but that's ok
thank you

so u know :)
Thanks Tammy for your thoughtful comments ... yes ... it is very ... devastating ... to "meet" "the one", who comes every few hundred years or so, so, you know, the chances of meeting "someone" like that again are pretty limited ... but then ... u find out that you can not be together for one reason or another ...
