Romance


She was his anchor, keeping him sane, and he was her glue, keeping her together. They were never apart if they could help it. It was only supposed to be a small business trip...But then the airports closed down to ease the spread of the virus, so the two lovers were apart. Little did she know it would be forever...


.。❅*⋆⍋*∞*。*∞*⍋⋆*❅。.

Girl’s Perspective

You’re so far away

I wish you were with me

Please come and stay

I need you, can’t you see?


My heart is aching

My mind is racing

Are you okay?

When will you say?


My emotions are large

My tears drop quietly

You are my charge

My energy


If you don’t answer, I’ll come

Mask and all

I’m stronger than some

But I’ll race at your call


Please tell me

Please don’t go

You’re across the sea

And I miss your glow


I want to hold you

To gain comfort, and to give

You are my glue

Without you, I can’t live


Is it the same for you,

Or are you alright?

I haven’t a clue

Because you aren’t in my sight


I’ve almost lost hope, 

But I’m trying to hold on

In truth, you were my rope,

But now you are gone


You went like the wind

And left me here alone

Maybe I was blind

Maybe I should’ve known


Did you mean to leave me

Right when you could

Did you take your chance to flee

The moment it seemed like you should


I was naive back then

I still am today

Because I jump when

I hear something you say


There are problems in the world

We should be solving them together

Instead, my heart is furled

Because you severed our tether


Now I am alone

What about you?

Have you simply grown

Learned to tie your own shoe?


Yes, I remember

I did it for you

It was my pleasure

And of those, I have few


Especially now

Now that you left


Are you sick in bed

Or are you healthy?

Are you well-fed

And eating plenty?


The reason you don’t answer me

And leave me in the dark

The reason you don’t hear my plea

To remember our spark


Is it because you’re hurt

Or do you ignore

This is something I blurt

To you, my heart I pour


If you would just let me know

If you could just send me a text

If you would just let me see your glow

Then I’d give it a rest


Instead, you leave me to guess

Terrible things

You put me in distress

And are pulling my strings


The strings of my heart

Now they are frayed

The longer we are apart

The more I feel betrayed


Sweet words you used to say

Your hands were delicate and soft

Then you were on your way

But at what cost


Not just the money-

But the ache of my heart

My stomach feels funny

Like I forgot my part


Is it all because of me

Did I do something wrong 

Is it no longer we?

Does your heart sing a different song?


Mine does not

It calls for you

You’ve got it all in a knot

You’ve got it asking who


Who to believe

Who to turn to

Do you deceive?

I need another clue


How much longer can I wait

How much longer can I bear it

I just need to think straight

I must use all my wit


I’m feeling so much pain

Pain you brought upon me


Maybe I should let go

Even if it breaks my heart

Maybe I should let go

And begin with a new start


.⋆。⋆☂˚。⋆。˚☽˚。⋆.

Guy’s Perspective

My love, my dear,

My darling,

I fear

That I might be falling


It’s hard to feel

When I gave you my heart

To think this is real

I want a restart


I cough, and I sneeze

But the biggest pain I feel

Is this small squeeze

One that cannot heal


If only you were with me

If only I could see you

If only it could be

That I didn’t have to leave you


They say there’s no such thing, 

As a happily ever after

But together we could bring

Over the pain some laughter


Instead, I lie alone

Breathing some of my last breaths

I’m on my own

Lying on the bed of death’s


Yes, I am hurt

But I worry more about you

Once I’m under the dirt

What will you do?


Are you going to move on?

Are you going to stay strong?

I’m almost gone

It shouldn’t be long


Though I do wish

That I could’ve told you

Though I do wish

I could’ve given you a clue


I feel very blessed

For everything I had

I had the best

For that I am glad


My only complaint

The thing I really want to have

If I had no restraint

I’d want you, my other half


I don’t know which is worse

Not seeing you again

Because that’s like a curse

Or you being in pain


I hope someone tells you

What happens to me

I hope someone tells you

And you’ll come to see


Though I’ll be underground

I want you beside me

Though I won’t hear a sound

I need you beside me


We’ll be together forever

That’s what we said

What’s happening, however

Fills me with dread


I couldn’t say goodbye

One last time, and

I hope you don’t cry

But you’ll certainly be stunned


There was nothing we could do

Don’t blame anyone

What we’re going through

Is happening to everyone


Will you remember me

Or will you forget

I want you to be free

And live without regret


I’m sorry, truly

I didn’t mean for it to end this way

Sometimes the world does things cruelly

Don’t let it shade you in black and grey


Keep your cheer

And keep your smile

Wipe away your tear

I’m not worth your while


I feel my consciousness slipping

So I guess it’s time to say goodbye

My heart is nearly ripping

It’s too late to ask why


I love you is all

I really have to say

It might seem small,

But I hope it goes a long way

Also, I was thinking of making one poem submission per week to improve on my poetry skills. What do you think?

Sure! Although for a selfish reason: You’re already amazing at poetry, I just want to read MORE from you! 😅

Wow, wow, WOW! I’ve read tons of poetry Reedsy stories and this was nothing like them. I love the way you captured their voices, blending it into an awesome image of their separated love! I especially adore the first part: “She was his anchor, keeping him sane, and he was her glue, keeping her together. They were never apart if they could help it. It was only supposed to be a small business trip...But then the airports closed down to ease the spread of the virus, so the two lovers were apart.

Thank you so, so, SO much for this! I'm glad you liked the first part, I didn't like it much myself like I said it was only for word count purposes. And about my name, thank you as well! Never had someone complement my name before... It's really nice to have someone checking my profile that much to notice I took away my pen name. I'm also waiting for your next story! Maybe you should give poetry a try. -Amany :)

Hi, Amany! I’m back. To ask you something. Okay, I swear I’m not a creepy internet guy or anything, but would you mind telling me what time zone you live in? I just want to know when I should pop by to read the daily quotes. People on Reedsy live in all time zones-for example, I had a chat with a girl in India the other day. Basically, I just want to know if morning for you is morning for me, or lunchtime, or even 10 at night. You don’t have to answer if you don’t feel comfortable telling me ~YoUr LoCaTiOn~, but...yeah. Okay,...

Hey Aerin! Sorry, it took me so long to read this, I didn't get a notification due to the fact that you replied on yourself not me. After repeatedly searching, it appears where I live has the same time zone as you, though I would rather not say where I do live. I usually update the daily quote by 10am in the morning each day, that's when you should check. I hope this helps! It is late afternoon for you at the moment, correct?

Reply

18:25 Aug 05, 2020

Oh, okay. Thanks! I think. For me, it’s 2:25 as I’m writing this. Okay then! I’ll stop by at around 10 am for the daily quotes!

Okay, so, I've seen a lot of people writing poetry submissions, so I decided to give it a try. The little thing on top is kind of a backstory, but it was mostly added for word count purposes. The two poems are not written and sent to each partner, they are just sort of the story in poetry form. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks, and again, I hope you liked "Infected Love"!

¨Instead, you leave me to guess Terrible things You put me in distress And are pulling my strings The strings of my heart Now they are frayed The longer we are apart The more I feel betrayed¨ Are just SOME of the great lines in this gorgeous story about pining and worrying from afar. I really love that you made it like poetry, it gives it a even sweeter touch. I dont know how you do it, does it come naturally, all this talent?? You continue to impress me, and this one is a winner! You go sis!

Omg! That was literally the best poetry I have ever seen. Usually I write poetry but for some reason I don't understand others. But this was so clear and simple you didn't make it complex, you went straight to the point, it was really beautiful and sweet as well as sad. I love how I could feel the pain of each character through such little words. I honestly loved it..good job!
