The Ache of Loving You


I picked up the phone today
A hundred times, maybe more
Can’t recall through the ache
Of loving you evermore

Time plays heavily upon my mind
Drifting memories across the miles
Reminiscing sweet recollections of rhyme
And of days filled with honeycomb smiles

Trepidation silently ebbs over this misplaced soul
But can’t quite quench the fire of such a sweet love lost
As anxiety meanders through the threads of my reason
Seeding hesitation on a friendship that’s worth any cost

Required now to cast adrift and question obscurity
Look past self doubt and rise above the pain
To ascend the dream and simply trust that you know
As I quietly hold a tear, and pick up the phone again

We are all just prisoners here of our own device ~ Hotel California, The Eagles

Dear Eddie
What a beautiful piece filled with overwhelming emotional outpouring from your heart, can really feel the emotions that belong to this piece, you have penned this so well my friend and it is indeed a wonderful read.

Eddie, this is so beautiful. You know how much it touches my heart at the moment.
One for my library I am sure.

I am touched by your sense of knowing your feelings so clearly and willingness to persue your dream at all cost. I enjoyed this lovely poem so much! Ellie

A friend hears the song in my heart, and sings it to me when my memory fails.

Eddie your faithful heart and sincerety has always touched me...this write does that as well. I know this ache well my friend..the traces left behind leave us a connection that a heart wont let time erase.
Some things never leave us...and sometimes we learn to hold on while letting go.

... and I don't know why ...
Why should love come down and just sweep me away
I want to fly ... but there are so many things in my way.

Eddie, sometimes we just can't forget...
sometimes the heart won't let us.
The ache in this clearly came through.
Wonderful closing feeling here, of...hope.
~Hugs~

an ocean of you,
what if I told you,
what if I said
that I love you
do we dare cross
that line between your
heart and mine~

It is a torturous feeling isnt it not being able to be with the one you love..and its so sad when the feeling finally disappears over time..something that was so very special and close to your heart..

Eddie darling boy I suppose you think that I’m going to praise you to the skies? Hmmm? …….. Well, of course I am, this is utterly utterly wonderful as YOU very well know. The way you translate feeling into words is gorgeous the tone of the poem as heart achingly sad as those whispered dreams faded can be

Absolutely first class writing you are an utterly wonderful writer.


Love and warm stuff

Ellie ~ It is good to have you stop by, and good that you found enjoyment here, thank you!

Janet ~ you well know how I feel about my words being able to touch others, thank you.  I know you know the ache well, and as time goes on I guess I understand a little more, its time I wouldn’t trade for the world, but a little less ache occasionally would be ok! Thank you my friend.

Nancy ~ I don’t want to forget, the memories I treasure beyond all else. But as  said, perhaps just a little less ache.

Lauren ~ as you would know Lauren, it is a two edged feeling. I appreciate your stopping bye, take care!

Victoria ~ torture is a good description, at times it does indeed feel that way. But you know, I don’t think this love will ever disappear, just filed away in a corner of my heart awaiting release!

Donna ~ it is the only way I know, thank you, and take care!

Marsha ~ if you keep calling me “darling boy” you an say anything you like…lol Its all about that feeling and I’m glad I was able to get that across, thank you dear poet lady.

This reminds me of the time me and my wife were separated and I was thinking about her and really missing her but I didn't want to call because sometimes she wasn't receptive to me but on this particular evening I finally picked up the phone to call and she had called me at that precise moment...so when I picked up the phone she was on the line...that was a fantastic moment but unfortunately in the end it didn't work out...James

I had to come back and have another look. You've made me think about something now. This still touches my heart, I love it.
