I know you
rarely, but sometimes, your absence is felt keenly – not that I cry, not that I lament
between what was, then lost and the dream, a reality waiting to be – again
I know you, but in this lifetime
I have never looked in your eyes, never tasted your kiss, felt the stroke of your hand across my skin
or the power of your flesh parting mine and merging into oneness
yet, sometimes, I feel you as a sheltering physical presence as I sleep, your breath moves my hair and raises goose flesh
and when I consciously long for you, whoever you are, wherever you live, and cannot find sleep
I imagine you spooned against my back, warm solidity
your arm beneath my neck where, when I wake, a constellation can be made connecting the freckles near my cheek
I know you, the sound of your whispers and laughter, how you read to a child
I can hear your thoughts and nod in affirmation, smile, wonder
Yes, even beneath the turquoise dappled in gold reaching the depths I know you,
I see you stretching out to push the oceans waters past you
crystalline droplets on your naked body as you lay on a stone warmed by the sun man in surf
I know the boy you were, the man you are, will immediately recognise you old or young – once the universe aligns
until then, know this
my heart, it has always been yours
I will wait for you
ten thousand lifetimes if need be rather than compromise, to live with less than what I know is ours alone
this sacred trust I keep
I know you
Hi guys, thank you for stopping by. If you'd like to know more about me, my blog (I wrote this poem) is a terrific place to start!
http://teresafritschi.wordpress.com/ (yes, my real name so you can also Google me) and see if you like how my brain functions - (it might be useful to treat it as something of an owner’s manual). If this effort is off-putting, or you are into games - please move onto the next prospective female in your queue of candidates.
I'd love to get to know you - but I can't if you don't fill out your profile or answer at least some questions, make a little effort I will more than meet you half way!
We should share at least a 75% compatibility match, 60% friend match. Please do not write and attempt to 'talk me up' if we are less than that - you should want someone highly compatible as much as I do! The RIGHT MAN is NOT MARRIED nor seeking a polyamorous relationship, nor does he smoke, and unless you are spiritual or Agnostic I am probably going to drive you crazy over religion - I would caution that self-identifying "Christian men" are most likely to be offended by my Eastern philosophy based views.
I am NOT YET in Croatia - but the date of arrival draws closer as the boxes stack up around me! Yes, help with my Croatian language skills would be most welcome!
You don’t ‘need’ to have a woman in your life but want one again for the balance and stimulation the right one brings with her. You kiss with your eyes as well as your lips, especially if it's the inside of my wrist or the back of my hand! You don’t say ‘I love you’ every moment of every day but ‘say it’ in a thousand little gestures such as brushing a strand of hair out of a woman’s eyes, send flowers for no reason, present a kiss to the top of her head or near her ear, provide a hug even if she has a knife in her hand or is covered with wet mud from gardening.
If you think sending me pictures of your various (ahem) attributes is appropriate - it's not -nor is suggesting as much. I have a very healthy libido and will want your body as much as any other woman might but I want to share our bodies within emotional intimacy.
