22 Aug


The only way

I can hurt her

is to never

see her again.



it will hurt me

even more

than her.

    No pain I’ve ever felt physically can compare to the the pain I’ve felt by losing someone I so desperately would love to hold on to. Everyone’s different though…

      We are. But some feelings are universal.

    Which one of these senses hurts more when denied?

      An impossible question. And the sense of smell. I can be struck dumb by the merest hint of the scent she wears

    Perhaps. Perhaps in the hurt, in the missing, in the need that so overwhelms us, there is the reminder that we are the blessed ones. We, in our not so very vanilla lives, enjoy crystal clear memories of those unique moments. Moments that will be our permanent companions.

    Perhaps you can recall a small utterance that told a story of a touch, a pinch, a smack that quickened her pulse and you knew, if you touched her there, you would find her wanting…

    Yes it is bittersweet to be sure. We are in similar shoes, you and I. Most days I can focus on the sweet… at least… I try to!

      Memories come unbidden. I allow them free rein until I can bear no more. I have known love and adoration. At times so much that I was spoilt. Now I must find peace. In the end I know that I can only find it if I embrace the future and not the past.

        Absolutely! Embrace the future and not the past. When the images float into my mind, uninvited, I believe I will see it, feel it, treasure the same with another in the days to come.

        Yesterday is your wealth…Today is your challenge…Tomorrow is a fantasy…

        Another page in your diaries to fill with finely carved love and adoration proof.

        Peace is overrated. Frozen. Wasted…

          I’m not sure I agree. Right now peace, after all that has happened, is wrapped around me like a warm and safe blanket

            Soon the lukewarm feel under the blanket will no longer be desired.
            You will be waited…
