    your friend told me you were here on
    vacation...
    memorie gyrate
    heart streams circulate
    in slow (e)motion
    and
    i want to see you
    but then again....
    no
    i want to see you

    we knew each other in every aspect imaginable
    from
    that night in the dark
    and
    that walk in the park
    was left a spark that illuminated
    our distance and space

    i never knew it until i saw your face
    your eyes
    i remember their cries of joy and pain
    and
    how we loved in the pouring rain
    as the last moment showered us

    a range
    of promises we exchanged
    to stay true
    committed
    in every way....
    but
    this very day was gray & strange
    for
    we both have admitted............

    3 years later
    we can only be friends
    at the least we can be friends
    who shed tears later

    Well, most people can't even be friends after a relationship.

    this happened

    to a friend of mine

    she and her high school sweetheart
    broke up while in college

    this episode was bitter yet sweet
    in contrast to the average number
    of long term break ups

    *singing "misty blue" by Monica* LOL

    hmmm...

    ...and everytime i see her, my mind jump to automatic rewind, to replay all the memories i have of US...reviving that buried lust...and loosening the flood gates that holds back the river of "i wish" that kept hope alive.

    thanks for the walk, j'hiah.

    nice flow.

    Better to have loved & lost, than to never have known love at all! Right?!


    Love this piece/peace ~
