325 (who?)
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:

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

I love this piece. So sad and so real. There is weeping in the shadowy realm.

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.
