I never meant for that space between my heartbeats
to belong to you.
I never meant to look too long into your eyes,
but I did,
and I got lost.
Forgive me.

I never meant for my eyelashes to fall for you.
I never meant to feel your heartbeat in your breast
when you hugged me goodbye,
but I did,
and my heart beat in time with it.
Forgive me.

I never meant to crowd my ceiling
with the whispered letters of your name.
I never meant for my nights to be as black as your hair,
nor my earth as brown as your eyes,
but they are,
and they'll always be that way.
Forgive me.

I never meant for my brain to be all fogged up with you.
I never meant for us to become so close,
then pull away.
But we did,
and there was nothing I could do to stop it.
Forgive me.

I never meant to fall in love with you,
but I did,
and now we'll never be the same.
Forgive me.
Meh...

I know what you mean in every letter, cay. I went through this, myself. I'm sure you remember who with, too... But knowing they are in your heart means you can look at that time and remember that feeling, but feeling that love means you can bring that power to your daily life and find a new lover to aim it at, never forgetting your past feelings but aiming them in new directions and creating new paths and flames that may one day be doused. However, as with the seeds of flowers, the flames of love can never die - they merely recede from one place to spread the fire to a new host and a new place so the flames can grow and multiply and encircle the earth as it was meant to until your love extends so so much more than one person who pulled away because he knew he wasn't good enough for you but made you think you weren't good enough for him because he didn't want you to see him for the lowly heart he feels he is. I know, I've been there... But I would never do that to you, because I know you will always be on the same level or higher, so much higher, because your flames spread faster than mine can. You are amazing, Cailin, and I will die before I let you believe otherwise for another second longer.

There's nothing I can say but thank you, but those two words are inadequate. So here's a thank you with a whole lot of feeling behind it. :hug: Thank you, Steven. Love you. :heart:

And, btw, forgiving yourself for self-doubt is all the forgiveness you need.

I feel like in almost everything you write, there's something that I, and probably all your readers can relate to. Personally, I feel like that sort of universal poetry is amazing, and I really love the way you capture those emotions. That said, here's a free hug from a complete internet stranger. :D *hug*

I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
I've been better, truthfully... but I'm thriving. Just problems with what I described in my journal, nothing major. But thanks for your concern. :love:

D'AWWW... :hug:

That's so sweet... and I can relate, almost fully. Only problem is that it wasn't love but some cruel impersonator.
-hugs-
Beautiful write, nonetheless.

:cling: .. you're brilliant, Cay, I swear it..

Though we've both.. maybe been with people who have done us wrong.. I know that.. somehow, we're going to make it out okay..

Someday, if you want, you'll meet the most amazing guy or girl who will treat you so well that all thoughts of this person will vanish.. vanish fast.. and be replaced with the most beautiful of memories.. and then.. then you'll feel okay again.. :heart: ..

I'll stand by you until you feel okay again.. :cling:

I sure hope so, hon. And I know you will, too. :heart:

I know you will, my dearest amazing Laura. Because you're a true friend. :D
