Mash up

I feel like a jig-saw puzzle missing a piece and I'm not even sure what the picture should be...


"Their plan had been very simple: to stay together for the rest of their lives; a plan that anyone within their circle would agree was accomplishable. They were best friends, lovers, and soul mates, destined to be together, everyone thought. But as it happened, one day destiny greedily changed its mind…"


“I waited, and waited. And he waited, too, though I didn’t know what he was waiting for. It felt like I was the only one reaching out. But he was always there. Watching me, watching him. Never any closer to me, but never any farther away, either.”


"I feel like a jig-saw puzzle missing a piece and I’m not even sure what the picture should be."


And when you came into my life, I didn’t care about the picture…although you were puzzling me in some ways. Because…


“You are the distance between the ways things are and the way I want them to be…


Time and distance are what daring me. I feel you are so closer yet so far away…Like the millions of stars I was gazing up the night you sat there beside me. In the middle of strange silence, you’ve broken up my dream saying…


“Don’t wake me cause I’m dreaming of angels on the moon

You can tell me about your thoughts,

About the stars that fill polluted skies

And show me where you run to,

When no one’s left to take your side.”


I couldn’t say a thing. No words for what I feel. Perhaps I know you know what my heart is.


“Cause I could see your heart. You held it out before you for everyone to see, and I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life I wanted to keep it safe, to warm it with my own."

As a creative writing piece the cosmic distance of emotion is defined idealisticaly and with insight that possibly only a woman can reveal;)

Blaise, this is wonderful. I didn't know till I got to the end that they are well known quotes. Even more embarrassing as I read some of these books, including "P.s. I love You". These are lovely sentiments, and expressed between two people who are usually madly in love with each other. A nice "Lover's Hub" in a way. WOuld love to read more like it. Rating this very much Up! Thanks!

Sweet Micky Dee thank you :)

Cheeky Girl hey! haha yeah, I'd like to see reactions like yours ;) I'll make more like it in the coming free time. Thanks for rating up. XX

Blaise, you are not a quote whore. Don't say that. You are a collector of quotes. LOL! Sounds a lot better, and less cheap.

I love the Jigsaw image. We all feel a bit like that at times. These are interesting quotes. And also there are times when - as you say, there are no words for what we feel, when only emotions can say, and they transform beyond words into other things. Which is part of the beauty of love.

Oh, wow. Listen to me. Okay, enough gushing here. (laughing at myself now) Take care, blaise. Always a joy reading your hubs.

Blaise, you are one hubber I would quite like to meet one fine day. Only for my cowardice, I'd tell you why. The comment on the puzzle has me smiling. That is sweet. You are good at reading my mind. *Hugs*

Great qoutes, I like how putting them all together makes a new story. Kinda like when changing channels quickly on TV..... if you take all the words and pretend they go together youget somethign like.."Yesterday, in world news, a man was found hiding in....a new car!! All this could be yours if....Sara left me...." ;)

DoorMattnomore Hello! hahaha yea changing channels. You're last sentence is intriguing hmmm? Thanks for being here :)

OMG, Invictus! I missed you my fave poet. I've been checking your page for a new hub but maybe you're in busy mode. Yes, it may be pretty to be the sequel of "Secrets They Keep" but nothing would be perfect if you wrote its next piece ;) Please..please.. :)

I've been sick but back to my feet. Hope all is great with you. Hope to read a new poem :)
