I could think of you anywhere ..........

I'm just a man that's all
today I might be alone on a job
somewhere
Or tomorrow I'll be deep in the woods
and think of you
You out there
and me too far away to
step up next to you
my hand on your hip
my lips on your bare
shoulder

Remember when ? When we were
new to each other
was it
just the mystery alone
the one
where a strange perfume
captures a mans inner being
where the facade of his flesh
betrays his inner strengths


Or in the clumsiness of all men
I stumble through the liquid emotion
of touch
And we ended up knocking down
the castle door of
commitment
Was it all worth it ? I'm sure it was
and yet will it be
tomorrow?

I could you know
I could think of you anywhere
and I did
One day beyond eternities
evening shadows when
the hands
of time are old and shaking
Will we remember and
smile and say
I could think of you
anywhere

uh-uh, Ed. If one is a romantic at heart, it permeates his or her whole being. Any impression of stone-likeness is merely a fa├žade - probably waiting for the most fitting reason to be shown in a generally insensitive world. You don't fool anyone with perception!!

There is no way to be a romantic at heart and not in real life! It just takes a special kind of person to see you as you are!

Nellieanna , Im not so sure , The soul of a writer can be divided ,can it not ? More than one person might reside inside his person? You are right though , the world is insensitive .......Hugs!

Oh yes, anyone's soul can be divided. In fact, it may be the natural soul-state when trapped in human form. But certainly writers' awarenesses clue them in on the fact most readily! We probably need that touch of schiz to do our best work. Suits us to be spokespersons for the others and adds a magic beauty to our output, especially if we take ourselves seriously on a flexible plan.

This thought follows: Who is/are 'the insensitive world'? Is it a unified block or is it its individuals? :-D
