Almost Love...

 365 days and a few nights later
I am trying to taste the familiar warmth
and hear the forgotten footfalls
that has become silent like both of us.
We have kept veracity and a few smiles
In a curtain box
planning to take it with us
later
someday, sometime,
when the callings of life will be completed.
Till then we will postpone love.
Now sleep is lonely and famished
as dreams have deserted the eyes and
both of us imagine
a future love
waiting
today...
the day after...
and a day after... 

and this explicitly is the loss of love!

Hope and solitude is a cold love.

It is sad when life comes to that.

already dreaming of the next love...i wonder at just what it is that makes them need to or want to postpone love...

What can possibly link two hearts seperated...only thoughts of love, and longings unexpressed yet perceived on a deeper level.
Perhaps a new love could be the answer.
But I have doubts...sense unfinished connections...love that has not yet relinquished it's hold on dreams...and dreams are language of the Soul...

Sad when love is lost because not committed to...

Sad but true, until you wake up and take the incredible risk that somehow makes us love even better.
Well expressed/written
