I wish you knew (yet another experiment)

She looked at him,
as if he was real
but he was
was a chimera after all?
She tried to touch him
but he was only her imagination
after all?
"Give up"
she said to herself
here I am miles away
wishing he would know
how I feel?
Never felt love before
how can I tell?
to think from the heart
or to bind myself
to the realms of possibility
Pragmatism?
She looked at his vision
as he began to fade away,
she pursed her lips and said
"I wish you knew."

Note: Too many poems with a lot of feelings eh? :P please bear with me :D Hahaha

  7. It feels like it is a recent phenomenon that people fall in love from a long distance but it only happens faster than in the old days of snail mail. It has happened to me lately though, long distance love, and I too worry about the distance being a barrier to insight. But somehow on each occurrence once the connection is established I find I can feel the other even over the distance by simply paying attention to the feelings I have whenever that other person comes to mind. Those feelings are a reflection of what your love is experiencing/feeling. I suspect from your writing that deep down he already knows . . .
