You set my mind to wonder
I can't begin to understand
how you can say
you love me so completely
and not reach out to me
as I reach out to you
when all I offer is the caring
you demand.

we've stared for hours
at the precious light
that shines between us
while we've held each other's hands.

We've laughed for days
in the joy that surrounds us
yet in fear and pain
alone we still stand.

Why?

When we could bathe forever
in the never ending stream of comfort that flows between each other's souls
if only
you could take a chance
and try to understand,

We're really both the same
lonely and lost
in this foreign land
unless you open up
and let me in.

Great! When you give someone your all you expect the same back but life does not give us that opportunity to fall in love with someone who shows their love as we do.

love deeply effects us in many ways and it always seems to leave questions, doubts and anxiety is there a true perfect love that humans can share with each other. This one really is wonderful expressed once more Pierre.

I know the frutration of love such as this. I eventually cut my losses and walked away. Of course, being alone is...hmmm lovely at times, but the constant thought of being at a loss, not effecient enough and to have a one sided love...just was wasting my enrrgies. It's like this...if you love then live it; breathe it; allow the passion to be all consuming. To not have love reciprocated in this way is a loss that will scar the tissues of the delicate heart. When you profess love...be love. There can't be a compromise. I feel every letter, every word and all the movement and anxiety one sided love has brought me in the past. I feel for you.

TRUST lacks in so many partners. FEAR is the blasted culprit!
There is afterall only FEAR and LOVE in this world. If her fear is too great and insurmountable you'd be better off reconsidering the connection. ( only my humble view)

Exceptional work as always..
Vesna:)
