The Petals Fall Through Time

This time, the time machine took me back to the right place.

This time, I ran outside and and nearly grabbed myself before I walked out that door to kiss you for the first time.

But this time, another me stopped me, before I could stop me, and said

"The only thing worse than missing someone, is wondering what there was to miss."

This time, I sat down with me, and we drank and we spoke about how different things could've been. For me. And for me.

Later, I still kissed you for the first time. This time.

Later you kissed me, when I was ready.


I think I saw you cry.

Beautiful. :)

Without getting hung up on specifics, I simply love that you saw things differently for yourself. Kiss on the forehead, kiss on the cheek from here, from me to you; now. Because this is the moment we have to share. Because I love you as I love myself. Because more than anything, I just want you to know and enjoy peace. me

You are a dream and I was stupid to have hoped you could have turned into my reality and look what happened?


LIfe went terribly wrong with me

I frequently wonder how many times I've stopped myself from going back and preventing certain things from ever happening, for, as much as there are times I wish I didn't miss you, I'd rather miss you than have never had reason to.

I did too; and this time, he knew. that I didn't have to kiss him, that I probably should have not kissed him and that somehow, every time, we end up kissing.

Or as Christina Perri would say... " I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed, 'cause you broke all your promises".

It's all I can think about everytime I walk past that bus stop were you first tried to kiss me. I remember pulling back. And then hugging you because I wanted to kiss you so badly but I was afraid (still not sure of what). Everytime I see the ghosts of our past kissing, all I want to do is go grab me by the wrist and tell you to get the hell away. Or maybe kiss you for one last time. But of course, I can't do either because once you touch the ghosts, they disappear.

Thank you for this Iain.

In truth. I don't know what it feels like.

I told you once that I would renig all of my kisses through time and give them only to you. Each kiss I share with you feels like the first time. Me.

by any other name said...

Every time I kiss you feels like the first time.

My heart is convinced you love me.
Me, I'm convinced I love you, too.

I am getting pretty good at keeping my distance, from one life to the next.
Let's get a little closer, this time.

Life went terribly wrong when jealous individials take matters into their own hands and attempt to sabotage good people and good things. I am your dream and your reality. You are mine. Nothing worth having comes easy baby. Think about it. Of all people it's you who understands that as well as I do. Me.

Had I a time machine.
and Stephen Hawking proclaims…
it is possible
to traverse time

(Oh,and he's smart alright.)

To "go back"

in this lifetime
of mine.

I'd change a lot of things.

I'd find a way to kiss you
through such a kind mechanism.

Time and space.
Our mutual mortal continuum.

As of now it remains
out of my simplistic mortal grasp.

I'm too alive now to over-think
what all that I might "re-do".

Because I'm as human as you
and our current time machine
is simply now.

Do you feel alive too?
I do. Love you.
Love, me

What I love most about this site is how intelligent you think we are.

I'd still say yes. As many copies of myself it takes to do it the same way, for every chance.

this is beautiful,
it took me a while to compleatly understand.

It's ok. Spend all the time you want in ne-ver ne-verland, but I'm your reality baby. The realist part of you. Don't you forget it. Me.

Only you can get closer to me. No one else is welcome. Frankly I don't give two shits about anyone else.

You know what the funny thing is?

You are the only person I have ever called "bastard" "son of bitch" my entire life!

You sure should feel special about that.

Kiss you everywhere :)

eccentricerrant said...

You leave me in amazement. Your words are wow. Sorry can't be more articulate. This is one of your best.

it is true, you are my reality
a dream which became reality
and yet this reality
hasn't been fully manifested..
what happened, what prevented it?

I've missed you too.
Thinking of you today, and always.
Love you, babe.
ps. Forget redos. Be here, be now, be yourself, be free. I'm rooting for you. What else are kindred spirits and better angels for if not for each other.

Anonymous said...

Aren't I always myself? Aren't you? Look in the mirror angel baby. I love you always and forever. I'm here. Spread your wings and fly straight to my heart. I knew you'd come back for me. Kisseas! Me.

by any other name said...

I'm not looking for any redo. You must know me better than that.
The past might make me hopelessly sad, but I never want to go back.

Be here, now.
My motto and not so subtle suggestion.

PS, you might want to watch out. My heart and imagination are full speed ahead, straight for you.
My head is trying to bury us all in the sand.

FeverDream said...

had my world not shattered at that exact moment, three days before, i would have never been able to imagine you here with me now. i'm sure i've tried to stop myself somewhere down the road, trying to revive my heart at one point or another. but honestly, even if it feels like this has destroyed me, i got you. i won't give you up any time soon.

By any other name,
Thank you for telling me. Sigh. Wish there was a way to help. Will keep some distance. Hey, you don't want my cold anyway.

Standing orders for a hug, kiss, rocking, silence, absence; whatever you need from me.

Anonymous said...

By any other name,
Thank you for conceding I can, should, might know something about you by now. Bastard & SOB. True then, true still. ;)

And that was without the goon squad. Sigh.... What am I gonna do with you.

by any other name said...

You must have me confused with someone else. Or, perhaps, someone else has been confused with me?

Either way, I am fairly positive I didn't call you Bastard and SOB. I want to impress the lady you call mother, far too much.
Asshole, maybe...

Anonymous said...

Hah! Close enough.

by any other name said...

What can you, might you, do you know about me?
What ARE you going to do with me?
Also, who is this goon squad you speak of?

curious and curiouser!

mind = blown
this kind of reminds me of inception haha
very nicely done!

Crocodile tears washing it all away. Everything I do or say is never good enough. Stupid. And I start to believe it. Agree with it because it's just easier than having to fight. I can't even remember what a kiss feels like, net alone a few humane words. Real words! I miss real words. Real touches. Real life. Stupid hey?
