The Midnight That Lasted Forever









I do not have to look at the clock to know that it's midnight. I can feel the day rushing across the world, as fast as time.

But somewhere, there is a beach that time cannot reach. Where everyone and everything has always been and never was. And perhaps, you are there waiting for me.

In that place, time cannot touch.

Sometimes, you post things that I felt and thought about just moments ago. Thank you for giving flesh to our thoughts.

I am too afraid to tell you that I truly love you. I'm afraid because it may not be true, or even if it is, it can cause me a lot more pain in admitting it to be rejected. But I still want you more than anything. More than the want to have that sand between my toes. That is what is calling me to you. Pushing me on. You are my shore and I am a soul survivor. Shipwrecked against doubt and hopeful for your attention.

Sun sets. I don't want to be cold anymore.

I watch the whispers lead you home.

i feel like i should post a comment because i loved what you wrote so much, but then feel very unoriginal writing something like "that was so gorgeous" or something.
so i dunno.
perhaps i will only comment on pieces of writing that pull words right out of me.
but do know this, your writing is greatly appreciated and is so beautiful and so meaningful.

I learned that I dear family friend passed away today. It was very sudden and everyone misses him dearly.

Somewhere out there I believe he is still here with looking after his family, friends, and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him during his time here.

Till the day we cross over to a place there is no time.

Thank you for this.

God bless

It would be a pity to Wait in a place with no time.
You could be here already basking in that eternal light.

Dear You-Know-Who,

You never let me down, you never broke my heart. I did this all to myself only to prove a point to you. Your games of internet trials were like a dagger into my pleading heart at a time when I knew exactly what you were going through. To start anew and not know a soul, frightening as it is it's gets better, but you need to be the change, of this I'm sure you now see. I always wanted to get you out of my head, but I couldn't and I can't. No, you'll remain forever a constant reminder of what could've been until the day finally reaches where we see eye to eye, face to face. All I ever wanted from you was a genuine laugh, a genuine smile. I'm optimistic :)

I just now noticed all these comments, but I've been reading this since the eternallovesong showed me the way. I'm ignorant, as you probably already know about me.

Whatever you write, I feel the same and always have.

I wonder if you will read this. I hope that you do.

I love you. But I'm so afraid to tell you.

Maybe I'll tell you some day.

Or maybe you'll tell me some day. Then I will show you this post, and I'll say 'I said it first' :)

I'm waiting.

I love you too. I have no qualms about saying it... I will wait for as long as it takes until you are willing to say it. Not just to me, to the world. Or over the phone would work well too. ;) Together we could figure out what to do. I have shouted it out before, y'know.

Only I know that most likely you never will. Maybe we should just be "friends" - content in the knowledge that our reactions towards one another have satisfied our egos. ND. The conversation can continue, free and open with no reason to hide anymore. I mean, that is, nothing to hide but love. It's tricky. Sigh. I never want you to disappear from me. I never want to disappear from you. XOX

Watch Lost and you will know of this place ;)

Your writing is beautiful and moves me, as always.

I must say that I look forward to reading the comments as much as I do the posts.
I feel the need to contribute today.

So many people are in love, yet they are too afraid to say it.
Just say it. What have you got to lose?
Although you have a lot to lose, if you don't..

I'm talking from experience here. Take the advice of someone who has a few regrets.
Tell them that you love them. It will be okay :-)
I wish that I did, when I had the chance.

I hope and pray that you find the courage to tell that special person in your life that you truly love them.

I wrote this for you.

I love time in the middle of the night. It seems to last for as long as I need it to. A beach, a full moon, and a time like this is what I want with you.

I love you too? I wonder if you wrote that
Please let it be you.

Josie said...

I hope to reach there.
Eventually.
You will be there waiting, I know it.

You and I exist in that fraction of time between tomorrow and today. There is no such thing as "by the end of the night" or "by the beginning of tomorrow"; there is only, however, "now" and that is constancy. There is no separation in saying "a half past x [where x is time]", and there is no AM or PM - it's only a mode by which we break monotony. The truth is there is only one, solid, linear state of being we both breathe in, and if we happen to perpendicularly intersect at that point, then there is no doubt that one of us is simply travelling at a speed faster than the other, in order to finally meet.

I'm here. Today, I FOUND YOU. Please, say you hear me. Please, say you love me too...because I LOVE YOU, and I have been meaning for you to hear me. Even if by now I am an echo.

This is so beautiful to me. It makes my heart ache.

somewhere across this ocean is you. somewhere on this spinning ball of madness, you're there. and so is my heart.

Somewhere, there is a place that time cannot touch
hidden beneath tendrils of light and shadows of love;
you wait, out of reach and out of sight
somewhere lost but on my mind.

We left a world so big and unexplored
when the price of love was too high to afford.
But there are pieces, hiding amongst the trees
the parts of us too strong to leave.

So I search among the rubble and debris,
for the parts of you that love parts of me
and the parts of me that know how to love,
parts of us that we let go of.

I search for the tools I used to use to find,
they are hidden here somewhere, lost in time:
my love stored within a jar
brighter then, than any star.

Though what I seek cannot be found,
and whispers cannot make a sound
here on this place stuck in the past;
what I learned will make it last.

Though time moves me, like it's wont to do,
and I will never return to this place, or you,
whenever I begin to doubt
there's a light in a jar that never goes out.

The irony of your thoughts make you all the more interesting.

I love you, in a place where time does not touch, I love you enough to not love you on earth.

That place, will always belong to me. It's where they keep all the words you whisper before you fall sleep. that noone hears. There's volumes, tomes beneath the waves of all the things I've tried to remember come morning, of all the things I've tried to forget. And perhaps the thing that truly breaks me is that the you I see who sits upon that shore is more real than any you I've ever known.
