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? (^_^)
Listen to the Audio Version of this poem here: snd.sc/14RKOuM

Today we have a commission for the incredible :icontngapch: - She makes accessories by commission and I'd say she's well worth checking out. Not only that, she even has literature on her page. Don't miss out on good stories :3

It was an honour to do this poem for her and though I took it in a completely different direction than what she intended, she told me that she liked it. I personally geared it more toward a common female audience...most of whom might have lovers who are miles away across the ocean.

Is love less real because it is separated by a computer screen never. For what you feel in your heart will always be real (^_^)/

Anyway, if you ever have something you want written, I'm the man to commission for it ^^

:iconpointcommissionsopen: - I work based on whatever you can offer me so don't hold back :3 Check my journal to see what I can offer you (*3*)V

An interesting concept.
Again, I'd have to disagree with the start of the poem because Love can conquer anything- aka charity. Charity never faileth. There are all kinds of love, or supposabe love out in the world, but only the true dedication and commitment can last. So, it's only a lie of the love itself is a lie.

Your interpretation and presentation of the theme still intrigue me - and give me another angle to see from. I have already jotted down some thoughts for my own writing and character development. Inspiration takes many forms - thank you for providing me with some fresh ideas!
