Where my head’s at

Hardwired Heart Hand

My thoughts fly to be with you

I yearn, I fret

Don’t want to miss the chance

But cannot take it yet

And so constricted, wait

Impatience gnawing inside

Anxiety building – will I want

To stand up proud, or hide?

What will it be like, to be faced

With such undeniable reality

The physical then included in the ken

Of someone who means so much to me?

To be face to face; eye to eye

To reach out our hands and lo, be skin to skin

Will it shatter expectations? Overwhelm?

Or unify? How will I take it in?

Nonetheless until that day or days arise

These oceans keep us steadfastly apart

Meantime with our eyes upon the prize

We’ll stay hardwired: heart to heart.




Today’s prompt was ‘hunger + another emotion’. There were some obvious ways to take that, but I didn’t like to; instead I thought about where my mind goes when I daydream, and it ends up in ‘Murica, meeting (for the first time, mostly) some of the very good friends I’ve made in this here Blogosphere. The trip is planned for next year, but there will be ups and downs until then, and a year full of nerves to get good and anxious about doing it For Real, and standing face to face with people I know largely by their heart and character.

    You’ll still say funny things like “bugger ” and “arse” right?

    Well done! Meeting people you’ve only known online can be nerve-wracking, but when it goes well it’s so wonderful.

      See, the great thing is, with vidchat, I already know what most of mine talk/look/gesture like. WhatsApp helps with this, too…but the ‘in person’ bit…that’s going to be amazing and awesome and terrifying 🙂

    I can empathise. My lost love is 1000s of miles away. My true love is here with me: his voice in my ears, his love in my heart.

      ME SO VERY MUCH TOO! Interestingly, I think you and I will be alright – I reckon we’ll both be prepared enough to be utterly dorky and awkward that we’ll just be fine. Added to which we have a year of planning in the meantime, so we’ll be FINE – it will be just like that. But better.
