anthology of you

anthology of you

today, I penned another entry
with hemorrhaged ink
that never dries
between the yellowed pages
of yesterdays I dreamt
tomorrows that never arrived
in my journal
i drank a kiss from your lips
made love to your soul
with the same words
that never grow old
now I sit here planning
another imaginary rendezvous
in my cherished diary
i pen words of beauty
in my anthology of you

      1. WOW – Jealous…except, isn’t it really HOT at this time of the year? But less busy, so that’ll be nice. Your new car is going to miss you. πŸ˜‰ Glad you’ll still be blogging your way through it. We’d miss you if you didn’t!

  3. Yea, I know how you feel. Most men seem interested in me until I take interest in them and then blah, nothing. I spent sixteen months of writing endless poetry about him….., just to have his church laugh, mock, get angry and just to have no responce in those sixteen months other than somehow “knowing” that he was reading. I’m sick of the loneliness too, but not sick enough to give up. I feel pressured by men everywhere to give him up, and definately by women. Everyone wants to know where he is and I’m really tired of talking about him just to have people tell me it’s impossible. I’ve even begged God to make me fall out of love, to take all the rainbows, butterflies, India away…..I’ve tried reading the Bible, praying just to find myself praying about this situation again…..and I think I’ve exhausted him with my words, and I tried to start a blog again just to see if he was still there, but he wasn’t. I needed to set him free and I’m sorry if that hurts anyone but I had to do it for him. Now only if *he* would be so kind as to take himself off twitter then maybe I can be free. It evidently wasn’t in God’s plan for us to be together *right now*. And I think we both need a break. But I will go (lord willing) to where we met, but not to the coffee shop to be stared at by all the “in people” and the relationship police. I’m sorry if my persistence has affected anyone here, but I wrote poetry to him, not to other people who were reading what I wrote to him. He is still in my mind on my heart and I can’t seem to get over it. In fact, about almost ready to head that way, stopping in one town along the way I haven’t been to if time permits.
    So I feel where you are…..after writing poetry and letters for sixteen months I feel quite foolish (not to mention embarrased) but never the less I will return shortly to where we met and hang out in a park hoping like in the movie “Somewhere in Time” he will show up and if he doesn’t all I know to do is leave…..with my head down and eyes full of tears and sadness instead of tears of joy .

  4. I’m sorry if the above seems so harsh…..but having a man in my life is impossible right now…..I didn’t want to throw a good friendship out the door….and love that was just starting was quickly smothered. I’m so mad. Not just at them but by my whole life. Why must love be so difficult for me? I read about other people in leadership like Prince Charles. He said it was frustrating for him too as a Prince because it was difficult to find a person who wanted that kind of responsibility. People just want an easy life most of them and to constantly be in the spotlight is difficult…..so he may not be ready for that now, but I hope some day he will be.

    1. There are times when we have to accept and understand we don’t need a partner in our lives.
      Love is difficult for many. Not only you. I have had my trials and tribulations. But I don’t
      lose hope that things will work out eventually. There is someone for everyone.

      He will be ready one day.

  5. I’m doing a similar project for someone else, but mine is extremely zany and weird. Too weird to post on a social media site. (I’ll admit some pieces are on my blog.)
