    Yes, I have known caring for a distant someone. Sometimes ending in illusion, eventually realizing it was unrequited. Sometimes accepting its not fitting then, while a friendship already there can endure even without phone/writing for years, and a conversation about it can be imagined if paths cross again. Sometimes a vibrant possibility, with moments that feel quite real, yet with ambiguity in not humanly knowing how the other feels.

    Whether communicating is possible, or a preexisting friendship there, is another facet. Sometimes it's hard to know what is appreciated contact, crowding space, or appreciated silence. But I've found in my life that at times when a peaceful feeling comes, I take it as a sign that I'm being authentic for me in the process. If things seem empty or distant, I try to accept "okay, this is where I'm at now". If an unbidden moment of love washes through, my heart smiles, as if something is as it should be, in some dimension, even if not easily put in words nor an outcome known.

    In this expressive poem, it indeed fits well if the writer name refers to Hawaii, from which every other place literally is at least an ocean away.

    How about you? If it's okay for us to ask you, too :)

      Yes, 808 refers to Hawaii in this case :P

      I've definitely felt long distance love, but sometimes the distance isn't geographical, if you know what I mean. I think the feelings are the same, the ache is just as painful.

        Maybe even more, if perchance it has been with near and oft reminder of what one is open to and would love to share, yet finding it unavailable while seeing potential for it. Whatever your experiences may be or have been, I imagine they've had much poignancy for you as a person who feels deeply and sensitively in life ❤️

        • A Eve on 2017-03-17 20:39:19 (UTC)

          Oh indeed...I think I'm too sensitive, I do seem to feel things much more profoundly than other people. But I guess that can be a blessing as well as a curse :)

          • Jeffsortairish on 2017-03-18 01:16:33 (UTC)

            To me, it's one of your genuine qualities. And there seems to be an inner strength in you, too :)

            • A Eve on 2017-03-18 20:21:32 (UTC)

              Thank you Jeff. I think I'm pretty strong...but not all the time :)

              • Jeffsortairish on 2017-03-18 23:42:10 (UTC)

                That's perfectly okay, I'm not either, and I think we all deserve space for that :)

                Yes, I think inner strength is different than outward strength. Maybe it can be there in times of weakness or heartache, as a soft glimmer of still being oneself. Hard for me to find words for it, but I think it's something kinda sorta like that...

                • A Eve on 2017-03-19 13:20:53 (UTC)

                  those words are just fine ❤️

    I know the feeling & urges you are talking about Eve. I have been in a few long distance situations before. It can be a harsh mistress. To me what makes it hard is the communication & not seeing the person at all. I understand you probably can't see them every week but having to wait days on hand can be rough. I always get attached easily & then sometimes you just wanna hold the person. I guess the good thing about is when you finally see the person, the intimacy & sexual tension will be 🌋 lol right? Great job as always

    • A Eve on 2017-03-06 12:13:12 (UTC)

      Thank you so much...and yes, you definitely get it. I love intimacy and sexual tension mmmmm

  • billymacorbuddy on 2017-03-03 16:55:00 (UTC)

    Yes, over distance but more so over time. Days became weeks, weeks became months, months became years and the person I once loved is far beyond my reach. Only dreams could bring us together now.

    This poem was a beautiful expression of this sentiment.

    • A Eve on 2017-03-05 21:32:29 (UTC)

      thank you so much Billy 💋

        She's married and has children now. There was always a feeling of 'what if' in my mind and now it's too late. This poem just reminded me of that. Perhaps I was being a bit dramatic, but sometimes poetry does that to me. :)

          • billymacorbuddy on 2017-03-05 00:21:10 (UTC)

            lol, I don't mind sharing. Everyone needs one story of heartache in their life, that's mine. As for being a pet, I'm not so sure about that. Maybe pool boy or sexy gardener. ;)

              • A Eve on 2017-03-05 21:33:18 (UTC)

                You guys are hilarious, I'm enjoying this :P

              • billymacorbuddy on 2017-03-05 02:52:21 (UTC)

                lmoa Wow! From pet to pickup artist, that escalated quickly!
