    Somewhere...

    Outside of forever
    Dimensions of time
    Reason with space
    To keep my love for you
    At a safe distance
    Away from
    The stars in your eyes
    Ever falling
    Into my hearts'
    Inter-planetary embrace

    Somewhere...

    Outside of skin
    Air struggles to inhale
    Amidst the dust
    Of your memory
    Polluting me
    And when measured
    Against love
    The capacity of lungs
    Slowly fades

    Somewhere...

    Outside of Heaven
    Clouds wrestle with sky
    To impress God
    With their intricate patterns
    Of blue abstracts
    Painted with white
    And I watch in wonder
    Of shapes celestial
    And conceptualize
    The absolutes
    That cannot be attained
    Like lost love
    Living outside of me
    And broken hearts
    Searching for truth
    In solace

    Somewhere...

    "somewhere, outside of forever"...

    can sometimes seem like "never", but "where there's a love, there's a way"...for life is the journey and no matter how long the road seems to stretch before us, we are not truly alone. Each and every step is ordered...measured...

    I love this piece, Ms. Hunter. Its melancholy tones and blue-ish hues capture me and draw me inside to ponder the questions of my own heart; for inner space is just as vast a place...

    thank you for posting this today

    there is no SAFE DISTANCE from love...

    LOVE IS...all those things we hope for, dream of, fantasize about. it doesn't require PHYSICAL pressence to be deeply FELT...nor actions on the part of another, who may not respond. LOVE IS...all those things we search for...when we look into the window of endless souls, looking for the key to that untold story that holds all the answers to tomorrow's journey.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE.
    SEE IT, CLEARLY.

    this is special.
