Here to Stay

Here to Stay

A Poem by lindsay

I have sat here for a while now in silence
thinking,formulating of words to say.
Nothing  comes to mind,
everything is still very grey.

It was never black or white with you,
yet never once was it the same.
We were of many colors,
I love that we are different, was our favorite claim.

Then, you left one day
and I was standing there behind.
But I am soon leaving too,
I began to realize.

You said you would vist me when you come home,
the thing is, I can not just stand here and be that gnome.

I won't be here, I won't be around,  you know that.
Time does not freeze, you will not find me where we last sat.

You said I will come vist you
so do not worry, do not fret.
I will never put aside our promise
Remember when we met?
Of course I remember,
what makes you think I would forget?
I remember our promises
and all the plans we set.

However, times have changed now
 we are not what what were.
We can not rely on the past for,
where does the line between friendship and relationship occur?

There is another you say,
one that has stolen your heart.
But you know that it is unrequited
and I have been there from the start.

So of course,
just come to vist
and we will just write.
Maybe one day far off in the future
we will see each other in the distance,
leading, the same or a different life.

I so enjoy your writing, I'm really looking forward to reading more of your work.

"where does the line between friendship and relationship occur?"

There is no mistaking where that line is. Its right between restless nights and breathless hearts, usually in person, but sometime even, from afar.

Wonderful Lindsay.

This reminds me of a few of my songs as well. Unrequited love is a common theme. But this is more than that. For the love is not necessarily unrequited, but moreso just complicated.
They say that long distance relationship suck, and then they say that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Complicated.
The imagery with the gnome was cute. There's no other way to describe it. It kind of added a touch of levity to a darkly depressing poem.
I also really like the line "where does the line between friendship and relationship occur?" It's something I think we've all though of, but I've never actually seen it brought out so explicitly in writing. It's a really good question.
A great write. Keep it up.
