Saudade c. 2013

 

I feel it still

a silent thread so loud inside my skin

and I’m still unraveling with you

after all this time

 

A compass in the dark

I feel you out there like my north

even when I have cast you out, away,

drown your voice in the noise of life’s traffic

 

18 years of lovers, and you

yet still i yearn

for love spoken

that should have never been

and to walk in a world without your gravity

    Join the rest of the world in that one – Still feeling it for a girl I was dating at the beginning of the year for all of a month who got back with her ex. I refer to her as ubergeek on my blog – really hoping we get the chance in future!

      I think if we’re lucky, or unlucky as the case may be, we all have someone like this in our lives. I should have known from the moment I met him. It was an instant and powerful connection. If your Ubergeek is like that, I wish you all the possible future chances your heart can take!

        Oh yes, she is like that. She’s the only girl ever to have given me butterflies. I’d never fallen so hard for somebody in such a short space of time. We simply *got* each other
