Mermaid


Most of the time being in a long distance relationship is OK. Phone calls, email, video chats help. We play games together, read to each other so that we are sharing things and learning what we like and don't like.
Sometimes, this time being in a long distance relationship is like that picture. Curled up alone, in a safe place with a few treasures for company. The memory of being held, the pearl a moment of laughter. The passions of getting together. Yet, the knowledge that what is wanted needed is just out of reach. So tonight I feel like that mermaid. I know that in the morning it will be better, it always changes like that. From everything is fine, to a feeling of loss so deeply that only crying makes it better.
So tonight I miss Honey so much that it hurts. Tomorrow I will miss Honey, and it might not hurt.

I never really believed the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" line. But it is an incredibly beautiful gift to love someone so much that it hurts when you're apart.

I hope the separation is not for long.

I used to know this feeling all too well when I was in a LD relationship. Hang in there. It will get better!

Thank you all. I to hope that the seperaton does not go on longer than needed. But, I somehow think that it will last a few more years.

You are my pearl, my rare treasure, a beautiful woman of magic and mystery. And far more than I deserve...

My gosh! I have to give you two a lot of credit. My Wife has only been gone for two weeks and the time dragged by so slowly. I don't know how I would be able to handle months of separation. Here's to a quicker and more permanent reunion for you and yours.

I had a long distance relationship once. But it was when I used to date men so it actually worked out perfectly :)

Hope that one day your circumstances allow you to move closer to each other.
