Ive known you all my life

Updated on February 10, 2013

I've known you all my life

But I just met you

Just saw you

Just felt you

Felt your presence

Your heart

Your mind

Your Soul

But doing soulless things to be near you

Hold you

Touch you

Get you

For if I get you

I will keep you

Please you

Support you

Support you like the backbones of old

Of Past

Of timeless love

Of longevity

Longing to be yours and only yours

A precious possession

A gift

A treasure

Hoping you will learn to treasure me

As you should

As I want

As I need

Needing your support

Your kindness

Your faith

Your commitment

But your commitment is with someone else

Who possesses you

Who loves you

Who has you

As I have you for only moments at a time

Time runs out

You go away

And I wait

To get to know you again

      This sounds like either lost love or love beyond reach. Either way, it's beautiful!

      Oh I have been there, a dark yet mystical place. Leave before it's too late and find a heart that is open just for you. Beautifully written. Voted up!

      Voted UP & Beautiful. It is so Lovely when you can share a piece of yourself and have it relate to soo many others. I truly enjoyed this as I am experiencing something similar. Mind is a bit different as his heart is truly taken by "the other" but his commitment to keeping a solid foundation for his young ones keeps him there.

      I wish you could 'Have' that which you desire but if you know that it's not the time, then please don't give that part of your life too much energy, for there is another out there who will be ready for your heart.

      This was very deep and profound and no doubt feelings of yearning for someone that cannot be.. Our humanistic thoughts sometimes lead us in forbidden places, causing much hurt and confusion. That is when we have to tell our hearts to move on so that we can be happy. Thank you for sharing.
