    ...a.m. mind candy
    -----------------------------

    i am no longer going
    to torture myself
    in the midnight of
    my existence
    with
    the thought of you...
    the thought of
    how it was
    where we are
    and what it could be...

    it is...
    i love you
    in the truest sense
    of everything that i
    am...
    a woman
    caring
    loving
    devoted
    spiritual...

    yet...
    it is bittersweet
    "rhetoric" that
    i exist in my world
    and you in yours...
    we are...
    without each other...
    and in need of
    one another's
    soul to satisfy
    our
    living...
    right here...right now

    but, alas...
    we wish for the
    untouchable
    as we stand next to
    our human reaching...
    reaching past what we
    can have now...

    it is...
    i love you...
    right now...
    and tomorrow...

    may i say it to you
    simply...?
    and...
    yes, you have known
    it to be true
    as i know
    you love me...
    too...

    so...
    listen...
    and watch...
    how i say these
    three words...
    to you (yes, you)

    i love you

    ("i am ready for love....")

    when the light bulb comes on...

    hmmmm.

    a beautiful thing
    acknowledging
    love.

    "in the midnight
    of my existence"
    i admit that i've been
    missing
    all that could
    and would
    and should be
    if only you were here
    with me.
    and we could say
    "i love you"
    together
    and forever
    know the beauty of
    ONENESS.:)

    The beauty of love
    is that it can fly
    and when below
    gets rough
    we can see from up high
    just how good it all is.

    Thanks for touching me with your words.:toast:
