I have been removed from this place too long,
the place that I could always go to
in your voice, moonlit and soft
taking me closer into your very being
where I always felt at home

since the first hello,
it has always been passion
passion, yes, but so much more
my heart has always been yours
just as yours has always been mine
even if our bodies weren’t together

I too, wish that things were different
that the distance did not mock us so
that my words to you  could just be here
on this page without fear
so that we would always know
and remember our promises to one another,
and, to ourselves

it has been a while since my words have spoken,
a while since they have told my heart
and, I know that they are not enough sometimes,
but, they are all that I have now
I hope that they are enough to let you know
of my heart
enough to keep you  safe during the clouded days
and keep you warm during the starless nights
when the tears come
and when only a touch will do

I still see you
I still see that shy woman
who is more than just her words
you become those words
and you still make my heart beat faster
with everything you do

I love you too
there is nothing more to say
we have spoken our hearts
so, let the critics speak and the naysayers scoff
we have touched, we have loved,
we do love
and, in the end,
that is all that matters

I am tired . . .

Yes Sven..love is all that matters.
You have written your heart so lovingly here.
I have also missed your words..always enjoyed your style of writing.
I do hope you have come home to stay.

  So you won't ever forget me~

(big hugggssssssss) God Bless You Both, sweet friend, and no critic or cynic could ever win because your love is pure and true and I don't think you could say it any better as honest proclamation is the most golden form of communication! (wipes tears) I am so happy you're back and I know Jennifer is going to tear up in joy reading this, God Bless You, you are a man of golden heart, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Sven, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Such a beautiful read ... I 'almost' didn't want to read it until TemptyOne had~
Just lovely ... and I know she will agree ... and more~

Do you know how wonderful you are...and how wonderful you can be if you go beyond all the obstacles? I am sure you don't, but I've a feeling you will find out. I believe in you.

I always find your heart in your words, Sven.

Thank you for you, Sweet Man. Thank you for this answer poem.

I don't care what those who don't know the whole story think anymore.

I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!

Everyone says you've been missed, but I've only been here since July so I've never seen you before, but I can see why they have missed you...this was beautiful, honest, and heartfelt. Lovely this was to read!
Love,
Terri~

I love you too
there is nothing more to say
we have spoken our hearts
so, let the critics speak and the naysayers scoff
we have touched, we have loved,
we do love
and, in the end,
that is all that matters



Yes, my dear sweet Temptress and Sven...."that is all that matters"

Oh, this touches my heart. My Gary has told me this exact same thing so many times, because there are so many of my so-called friends and family who do not agree with our love...simply because they don't understand. But, what does it matter, anyway? NOTHING!!

Real Love is too scarce in this world, so I cheer on and encourage whoever finds it!!

Thanks for sharing this with us. Oh, LOVE IS IN THE AIR AT PASSIONS

Hugs to you both  
Ethel & Gary

Edited Sorry, but these forums are not a venue for airing personal grievances. Some issues should remain private, or be discussed with a lawyer, not used to put others on public trial. We aren't here to judge anything except the value of good poetry.

As your friend, I find this heartfelt and endearing write very romantic.

A fantasy is only "pretend" and the love you two share is NOT a cyberland fantasy.

Hang in there and never allow anyone to stop you from expressing yourself with your words.

Hugs to you and please keep sharing your work with all of us!
Janette

always seeking joy, adventure and romance and wishing you find the same
