Intrinsic value lies at times behind the reflection so glaring in its honesty that I miss the truth of my own words and my hearts need.
Still, I search for that which would allow me to horde the treasures of you.
There are times when the reflection tells me I am happy, a false smile feigned on the outside while I know that my genuine feelings are of a love that cannot be returned until the truth of your words have touched the real of me and then the searching will be over.
Until then... I'll keep your memory locked securely in my chest.
Fabulous write you two. Evokes a feeling of sadness and yearning but also carries a flavor of hope. Hopes, desires and memories of what was not but so wanted to be, something I think all of us can relate to.
