a daydream of you, my love




one day when you are a million years old you’ll reach out absent mindedly after yet another elusive orgasm for the certain satisfaction of a post coital cigarette and instead you’ll chance upon an old picture which was taken when i had eyes that were as wide as this world and you’ll catch your breath as you see them shining in anticipation of the no longer heart stopping countenance of you and of the love that never was and the dream that got away somewhere along the way and all the laughter and the pain that fell stonily silent inside when you weren’t watching and crept unnoticed into a forgotten drawer by your bedside and lay quietly gathering dust ever since until today when a machiavellian quirk of fate hand picked it for you to look at at the very moment when the radio begins playing our old song...just so you know that it's finally over and that the time has come ever after which you'll look back and not wonder where love goes when it does.

Sometimes love takes a detour before it even gets to you. Sigh...

Post more often. I've been coming here a million times a day ever since I discovered your blog.

I just saw this. Lyrically hauntingly lovely. Icy, wise and sad.

Wow! So very nonviolent, and yet, exquisitely cruel. Really well written. :)

It's so beautiful, and has made me so thoughtful.
