Shoreline

Shoreline

Bring the tide in back to me
I want to get my feet wet, one more time
Before it recedes to
The recesses of the ocean
The moon won’t leave me signs
Anymore
She stranded me on an empty shore, and
My bones are dry, my face is salt
I walk, and walk, in paces faltering
Waiting for the ocean, he isn’t
Answering
And I’m almost lost, I want
To see him, before I melt
One last time, bring back the tide
I want to get my heart wet

    • Thank you so much, Ashley, and here’s an official welcome hug to Calliope’s lyre. 🙂

      Haha thank you. That actually looks near identical to me and mine, lol. That’s why I put it up. :p

      • Thank you, I am incredibly lucky. The best part is that he’s not even half as good on the outside than he is on the inside- Im truly lucky. 🙂 we’ve been together for almost three, and best friends for about five years. 🙂

      • Wow, truly astounding! Was it a chance meeting? I suppose all things are, but ‘ on top’ if you know what I mean.

      • Oh wow, I recognize the feeling, although Adam was just an aura to goodness and overarching care. I say ‘ was’, but he is my person, my One, you don’ t get too many of those. xxx

      • Well look, may I explain. I would like to understand you, I have read you, and now I’ m making my own deductions, but if you’ d like to take the understanding with me; shall we dance?

      • Haha yes, that is true. Sometimes we meet people who change our lives in their coming. And of course, explain away. 🙂

      • Eeek! Yes, explaining is really frustrating. Party-pooper. I’ m trying to feel what I mean to him, but really, he may have moved-on. I’ m motionless in my reasons. She obeyed me. I can’ t complain. And after that find a friend is perhaps likely.

      • Haha no I thought you’d feel more understood if you explained. And yep, we can never know where others stand, but we can know where we do. That’s something to work on anyway. 🙂

      • The 2 things are that firstly I’m not a very traditional person and had never felt any urge to get married so a practical reason was as good as any. Secondly I had been in some serious wrangling with him for about a year and was spent emotionally. This friend coming along gave me succour and much-needed support, so returning the favour was easy. Adam did not show any sign of turning-up any time or arriving at a decision so the other person in the picture that I would have married was not there. In a way we would not have been ready for it. It’s taken a while to get to know each other well enough. But it’s bearable since we connect on blogs still and my husband is happy here. Swings and roundabouts.

  3. Re: explaining. It’s been a few years now and I’ve been back and forth with him on blogs, and we both like writing. We like each other, sort of some respect at least, and saw an opportunity for partnership in each other because our other friends are not writers or don’t have the same tastes; not that Adam’s and my taste are completely similar, though at least the genre- and there’s a lot of communication and interest in art, writing, music perhaps too.
    I met him through a mutual friend and there was the other part of us there: huge attraction, really very strong. We were like rabbits in headlights and we spontaneously kissed each other during our first meeting, like those kisses that make you fall in love; from a friendship to a lovership. His friend was a bit peeved about us being all over each other.
    I really really fell hard for him. I told his friend even. It was a BIG deal and got blown-out of all proportion. Whereas we were being completely spontaneous the first time we met, the second time we met on our own through some very protracted actions that brought be there to where he lived. It was not the same, we were under pressure and it didn’t feel right.
    It’s taken me up ’til now to figure it out, how to distance myself emotionally a bit, be less needy, be more the chatty friend I was at the start, not put pressure on us if it didn’t work.
    In the time we spent apart I got married to my best friend, someone I met online whilst looking for him, and who needed a Visa. I’m not sure I’m even considerable from his point of view now seeing as my status has changed, though the evolution of our friendship and our attraction continued to this day. If I were him I’d have an affair with me, or would consider one, though I’m not sure it’s something he would entertain much. So, that’s my long-lost lover story, it’s been a few years now, and maybe he’s fed-up with me anyway and wants to move-on. He’s such a generous heart that he might just be being supportive when in fact he could be doing other stuff.
    This is the longest comment I’ve ever made I think.
    Thanks for the opportunity to talk. I hope I haven’t sounded harsh, and please don’t be too harsh when you answer me or I might die.

    • Ah yeah, I know what it’s like when sparks fly. Sometimes they come out of nowhere, and sometimes they’ve been there right in front of you, but you keep looking decidedly away, lol.

      That sounds like a lot to go through, though. Personally I’d never be emotionally strong enough to marry someone else if my heart lay elsewhere- you’re very brave to have managed that.

      And why would I be harsh or judgmental? Lol, it’s your life, and I am no way qualified to judge you, or your situation. 🙂 I do hope all goes well for you though. Only my very best of wishes to you. 🙂
