Contentment in Togetherness

I came to realise that love and togetherness sometimes do not go hand in hand..
One may be single but loved and another may be in a relationship but unfulfilled..

Love and togetherness, it seems, is only possible for the one who is willing to compromise to live life differently than one has intended..

But true love in fact realises the importance of living one's life and that compromises would contradict this very understanding..

We all desire freedom, desire life and as individuals we all have individual perceptions of what life is meant to be like..

Our passion, our desire, ways we choose for ourselves to grow, are rarely fully compatible with one-another..

And just to state this clearly, I'm not talking about the simplicity of existence, as this is something we all do.. I'm talking about living life, feeling alive, the ultimate form a human being can achieve..

It may be bitter that I can't fall in love with the naive, the attached, the "blind" as this one, I'm sure, would stay forever.. But this one, I know, I would never truly love and I would never be fulfilled with..

So I guess once we have grown and lived as we've desired to grow and live, we may find contentment in togetherness after all..

You're erasing me over and over again.. The pencil isn't sharpened anymore and nearly worn out.. There's not much graphite left either so be careful because the next time you erase me, I might be gone for good..

no one but me and thoughts of you

I caught myself thinking of you while I waded through the snow covered streets last night.. It was freezing cold but it didn't matter.. It was snowing and the streets were quite, there was no one but me and thoughts of you..

I looked down to my boots, followed their every step, wishing they would carry me to you.. My destination was home but I questioned if that's where I'm meant to go.. I kept walking, I just wanted to escape the cold..

I still wanted to escape once I got home because there was still no one but me and thoughts of you..

So I keep walking like a blind man without a white cane or any sense of orientation.. Just hoping that by coincidence I will find the right track that will lead me to you.. Because even though I'm surrounded by life and people, it feels like there's no one but me and thoughts of you..
