There is space between us right now. Stepping back to take stock of things is healthy for both of us. Already I know my feelings for you are even deeper than I thought before. All I can do is hope you are making similar discoveries.

Let there be spaces
in your togetherness,
and let the winds of
the heavens dance
Love one another but
make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a
moving sea between
of your souls.
Being apart is luscious agony, delectable torment and delightful distress all rolled together. I am richly blessed to have someone to miss who I care about the way I do you and to be loved just as much in return.

You left me long ago. My mistakes were too big for you to forget. It’s been years since I held you or we kissed, but I cherish you as the love of my lifetime. There has been no contender since, nor do I believe there will ever be.
…drove me crazy when I began to fall for you. I had trouble getting to sleep, but could not wait to dream of us each night. Back then even a few days of not seeing you was torture. You became the love of my life.

…renews, reshapes and reforms within itself. Like skin sloughs off a human body and is ever being made new, the heart does likewise with its precious contents. Love must be made and remade or else it starts to wither and die.
