You get me...

I miss him but it won't be long until I have his arms wrapped around me again. Less than a week until I see his face again. Smiling at the sight of me, likely mirroring the same expression I'll no doubt be wearing once I see him again.

When I can't put what I'm trying to say in to words, I explain the best I can. I try to find the words I mean, I try to get as close as I can to articulate what I mean. I do my best and somewhere along the way, he picks it up and finishes the thought for me. Some how knowing just what I'm trying to say.

When I'm so down I feel like I'll never get back up, he's the one who pulls me back up. When I feel like I have no reason to get back up and would rather just stay down and trudge along, he pulls and pushes me back to where I need to be.The one who lights the darkest moments with the softest glow, the slightest glimmer that's just enough to let me know that eventually, I will be better. Things will be better. It can't pour down rain forever. You'll only drown in the downpour if you don't get back up and wade through the water.

He gets my weird sense of humor and even finds me funny. He laughs at the crazy and sometimes twisted things my mind conjures up for pure amusement.

He relates to me so well. He understands me when no one else does.
He's everything I could ever want and then some. He's not perfect but neither am I. No one is. I don't want perfect, I never have.

I'm strong enough on my own. I don't rely on him for everything. I lean on him when I need someone though but not as much as I could. I'm still independent enough that I don't bother him with everything. Sometimes, I think that bothers him a little but he's never said it does.

It's hard being away from him but I know it's not permanent. I know that even in our distance, we will be okay because things work out the way they're supposed to. It's hard but if it were easy there would be no challenge in it. People say the long distances don't work but I'm here and proving them wrong. You can't be weak, you must be strong. You have to have a strong relationship. Open, clear and strong communication. It can work but the distance can't last forever. I know this distance isn't permanent and I believe that if we make it through, it will only make our relationship stronger in the end. I believe we'll make it through too. I'll do what I need to do. He'll do what he does. There are some bad times and sometimes it hurts like hell. Ultimately, I believe in him and the strength of our relationship.

"So I'm a little left of center
I'm a little out of tune
Some say I'm paranormal
So I just bend their spoon
Who wants to be ordinary
In a crazy, mixed-up world
I don't care what they're sayin'
As long as I'm your girl

Hey, you are on my side
And they, they just roll their eyes

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
Yeah, you get me

So what if I see the sunshine
In the pouring rain
Some people think I'm crazy
But you say it's okay
You've seen my secret garden
Where all of my flowers grow
In my imagination
Anything goes

I, I am all you want
They, they just read me wrong

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and hold my hand, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
Still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
'Cause you get me

Hey, you are on my side
They, they just roll their eyes
Yeah, yeah, yeah

'Cause you get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me
When none of the pieces fit
You make sense of it
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still I want you all the time
Yeah, I do
'Cause you get me"

A very HHNT to you

Another Ordinary Girl said...

I can tell you two love each other a great deal and that's the only thing that matters. You are right, the distance isn't permanent!

I was with a guy for 4 years and 1 1/2 of those years I was in Michigan and he was in N. Carolina. It worked for us for a while but in the end, I guess our love wasn't strong enough.

I'm pulling for you guys! Good luck and I can't wait to hear about your visit!

Isn't love grand? Can't wait to hear more.


swingerwife said...

A beautiful picture, Amorous. Love is a beautiful thing and I think perhaps even that much more intense when you are forced to be separated from that person.

Happy HNT!

A chain can only be as strong as it's weakest link, and the same can be said of love.

Of the feelings you each have for the other is as strong (or stronger) as it has been, then it will last.

Best wishes, and here's to hoping that when you see him, he completely knocks your socks off!

It's a beautiful and moody photograph but so overshadowed by the words - he's a lucky guy to have someone who feels that way about him. Then again, you're lucky to have found someone you feel that way about too :)

Isn't the best feeling in the whole world when you can just stop and BE w/ one other solitary person. they expect nothing but to be loved and you are loved in return.
