    is my future
    ...my destiny
    filled with sad goodbyes
    where you never come back to me?

    is fate so cruel
    that it would take you away from me
    ...allow you to go away
    where i'm never again to see

    YOU

    am i damned
    to spend this ETERNITY
    staring out a window
    waiting for your return
    to me

    knowing you're never coming back to me

    This reflection in the mirror
    ...someone i've never seen
    hollow eyes...and drooping shoulders
    replaced the man i've always been

    will i ever see you again?

    too long, i've been
    locked up in this time-swept dungeon
    praying for some sign
    or something
    ...anything
    that will bring you back to me

    but, it's not to be

    mind tottering on the brink of
    CATASTROPHE
    oblique images
    swaying in front of me
    ...losing myself in my dreams
    of thee

    will you

    someday

    come back to me?

    touching...nice

    (just because...)
    ===============
    i though about the day...
    ...of leaving you
    when i put on my
    running shoes
    and just...
    left...
    you...

    destiny was cruel...
    fooling me...
    made me think that
    you were for me...
    and i was...for you

    NOW

    i wonder what life
    would be like...
    loving you all the time
    in our forever-time
    hearing your voice
    that comforts me so...
    holding your hand
    that ignites the
    fire...deep inside

    my eternity will
    be empty because
    i cannot...have you
    fate deems this so...
    my heart pines...
    i do want you so
    i don't want you
    to be...alone

    the ocean's mist
    the mountain's peaks
    the midnight's moon
    ...and thoughts of you...

    coming back
    will never be for
    me and you...
    yet
    i'll always...
    love you

    pd...

    thanks for the read.

    MsD...as always, you've touched me {just because}

    i don't blame you
    your RUNNING SHOES always sat by the door
    you've wanted more
    i know...it's true

    LOVE ISN'T ALWAYS ENUFF

    so we play this game
    of kiss and touch
    staying just out of reach
    of commitment and such
    and when you tire
    of this and that
    you put on your shoes
    and grab your hat

    it's not you, i blame
    i knew the deal
    it'll take some time
    but the wounds will heal

    for now, i'll sit by this window
    and pine
    rationalizing my actions
    inside my mind
    until that day when
    i can move on
    i'll continue my drooping
    while singing my song

    of love.

    coming back
    i know
    can never be
    still, my heart belongs
    to only
    thee

    THANK YOU.

    ...in the same...

    ...just because...

    in that day...
    you'll know...(as i know)
    LOVE IS ENUFF

    no more games of tennis
    love...hitting hearts over
    uncommitted nets...

    kissing and holding
    always there...
    never out of reach...
    no shoes by the door
    no hat to grab...

    wounds of time past
    heal...birthing time anew
    for you...for me...

    outside the window
    i am in view...
    listening to your song
    ...of love

    i have your heart...
    i am returning...
    to you

    YOU'RE WELCOME~
