When I was young, I believed in fairy tales.
I believed that if your heart willed it,
That love could overcome anything.
That one day, two lovers could always be together.
But those were simple lies I think...
After all, how does one reach across a window;
Reach across a screen...
To hold someone on the other side,
Before they slip through your fingers.
Like a lonely dance between air and water,
I can only stand on the surface of the lake,
And see her smiling on the other side.
Sometimes, I would draw pictures on the surface;
These thin useless arms of mine scrawling tiny doodles,
And she would smile and reply to each one:
Including a heart, for 'I love you'...
And each time I would feel,
As though I could soar through any distance,
As though I could run a hundred miles.
If only so I could see you;
If only because I missed you...
But enough I say...
Enough of this life behind an invisible wall;
Enough of this existence where I can only dream!
For I wish to have you beside me,
To have you share in my joys and tears.
To have you here where I can hold you in my arms.
To kiss you and tell you how much you truly mean to me.
But no matter how much I wish it,
I know it'll never be.
And so I bury it deep inside;
And smile when you look at me.
Hey there sweetie, how are you today? (^_^)
