Maybe if I wish a little harder,
Maybe if I cry a little less,
Maybe if I smile a little more.
Maybe if I notice every detail of your pictures, one bye one. Maybe if I keep them all in my pocket, my wallet, my phone and my heart. Maybe then, I wont feel so far apart. Maybe if I look at those pictures every day, every time I want to cry, every time I want to just give in and die. Maybe then there will be a little less asking "why??".
Maybe if I replay that accidental voice message you left, over and over.
Maybe if I go through the messages I saved.
Maybe if I pull forward every memory I kept safe in my mind.
Maybe if I put on all my make up, dress all pretty, and act my sweetest. Maybe if I smile a lot, and use my soft voice. Maybe then your family wouldn't hate me so. Maybe if I dance around all sweet and swift, and never show the heaviness in my feet. Maybe if I don't stay up late, do all my homework, pull straight A's. Maybe then they will see me as
Remind Me -LDR-They tell me long distance relationships never work. But if they did, how would anyone know?Remind Me -LDR-4 years ago in Letters More Like This
They tell me to give up and find someone closer, but i refuse.
It's the hard times, the longing, the dying to be with them. It's the sting left on your lips after waking up from a dream of their kiss.
It's knowing somewhere, far away, someone holds your heart in their hands so carefully, so sweetly. Patiently waiting to hold you, in their hands, instead. Though, they will not give your heart up, they will just keep it safe in their pocket as they finally hold their love.
It's knowing that you will wait forever to be with them, and wish the best for them.
It's knowing you hold their heart, too. Their precious heart.. beating for you. Knowing YOU are the one that holds it, no matter the distance.
It's knowing that of all the other guys/girls they know, they picked YOU. They chose to love YOU.
It's knowing what it is like to be so far apart, and cherishing the moments together twice

Elbows upon knees, hands pressed against your face, breathing deeply, sighing, maybe a tear of two warming a speck of your hand.
Many reasons can cause such a position as this.
I miss you. So entirely much that explanation will do my no justice. I miss you, my love. I long for you here. More than just a little kid demanding a Popsicle on a hot day. This.. longing, a deep ache in the very thing that makes me, me. A deep and painful pulling of my heart, like a dog begging to go play, when its time to go inside. It's a shift in my soul, begging me with everything it has, ever single puppy dog eyes, every begging line, every promise, everything, to please please please just let it go home. A dullness of the thoughts and mind process, blocking the gears and stopping anything from working except one thought. Home. Home. Home. HOME. It's an every waking moment you are on my mind. It's a sickening of things once so swe

I can't help but smile, I'm coming home.
I know you're waiting, just like you've always been.
Keep waiting patiently, love.
Wait for the right moments,

Wait for the memories,
Wait for the hugs,
Wait for the endless nights,
Wait for the holding hands,
Wait for the butterflies.
Wait for the heart stoppers,
Wait for the kiss,
Wait for the breathlessness.
The right moments where everything falls into place.
The smiles you give me, and the ones we share.
The memories we will make and hold on to.
The hugs we will both hope never end.
The endless nights we will stay awake talking, and forget about sleep.
The holding hands, silently saying everything is alright.
The butterflies you give me, with just a look.
The heart stoppers we get from the perfect touch.
The kiss that will say it all and leave us complete.
The breathlessness that will follow every other kiss.

A Kaleidoscope of HeartsDear you,A Kaleidoscope of Hearts4 years ago in Letters More Like This
If this letter's aspect resembled its content, it would be a kaleidoscope. All the letters reflecting light in a different way and clinkclinkclinking in a waterfall of verses to form any of the shapes a human heart can have, cracking apart only to pull themselves together fractions of a second afterwards into a more complex, rich, pulsing version.
And if I could stop and pick each of them like cards from a deck, I would ask you of all the hearts you have created for yourself and the memories that, sewn in the insides of each of them, still affect me today.
I have so many doubts, dear you. I wish I were still at an age when drawing hearts to substitute my own worked in keeping it safe from harm, safe from pain. Even if so many of them were broken, stolen, or lost and never found their way back; even if you gave a few away and were given a few that you didn't really care about, even if some flicker by so fast that I can't remember what they looked like after

This I Believe - Long Distance Loving'sI believe in long distance relationships. I believe it takes a stronger, more dedicated kind of love to survive in a long distance relationship. Long distance has taught me so much in the months that I have been a part of it. And I believe in long distance relationships because it has changed who I am. I believe in long distance, but mostly I believe it can work.This I Believe - Long Distance Loving's4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Long distance has never been easy, but to me, it is more special than normal relationships. I believe Long Distance is like a sunflower, and closer relationships are like roses. Both are lovely and beautiful, but there are many differences between the two. Roses are sweet, beautiful, and colorful. But they protect themselves with thorns to keep things from harming them, and roses die quickly. Sunflowers, however, loom tall above the ground, reaching for the sky, with a stronger support to hold it up. Long distance, like sunflowers, needs that extra support. Putting 100% into it, because, like the sunflower, it is he

Never a love have i found as beautiful as this one, yet you come along with your twisted desires. for no reason at all you took him away, stole my love, shattered our dreams.
Time and fucking time again we show you just how committed, just how willing to ignore you we are. But you twist and threaten more, forcing my love to do what you say.
At a certain point you need to stop.
Just. Fucking. STOP.
You will NOT win, this i promise you now.
Haunting my dreams with your taunting and mean ways, a sure sign of too far. When i am cursed with the sleepy vision of your mockery, your lies, you in a glorified satanic way, how would you explain that.

LDR Guide Part 1Long Distance Relationship Tips!LDR Guide Part 15 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
By Michelle Williams
Hey, I'm Michelle and I've been in my long-distance relationship with my sweetheart, Jorge, since January 2009. Here I am going to share some tips and tricks that my boyfriend and I have come across and used to keep our relationship going. This guide is targeted mainly at those of you in serious, long-term LDR relationships, but many of these tips can be applied to any relationship of any distance. Hope it helps!
1. Talk About What's Going On
One of the downsides of a long-distance relationship is the lack of actually being there to know what's going on in your partner's life. So how do you keep each other up to date? Talk. Talk about your day, what happened, who you talked to, what you ate, what you talked about, etc. Be sure to fill each other in on as many details as possible about your day. Do it everyday! Be descriptive and be thorough! This builds trust in your relationship and doesn't leave your part

I'm bisexual, and yeah, I've kissed guys before you...
But this... this was amazing.
I'm a do-er, not a talker.
I'm not good with words, but God I'm great with actions!
You told me you loved me and I confessed I felt the same.
What the hell do we do now?
All these emotions flowing, I'll kiss you.
Actions speak louder than words, right?
All I can do is, well... do.
So why not?
Lunch that day, the day you gave me the letter, I dragged you to the bathroom.
You followed me, quietly questioning my motives for taking you away from the group.
Pacing around the bathroom you watched me a bit then I strode over to you.
You opened your mouth to say something, but as you did I, ever so gently pressed my lips to yours.
My eyes fluttered shut just as yours probably shot opened...
Slowly you started to kiss back and you put your arms around my neck.
I shivered slightly and placed my hands on your hips.

i've spent the better half of a year being your definition of evil and insane
at the same time. i've known better than everything i've done, but done it
anyway. god knows i've repeated the same tedious/dangerous/stupid
actions over and over wanting/expecting different results.
you wouldn't be proud of me for anything anymore.
but i'm still mad at you, i'm sure of it. if you waded through the
rising tides, or peeled away my blue like old house paint, you'd find something
that screams how you broke everything inside me. and how you were one single event
that taught me that just cause something ends, that doesn't mean its over.
and that i will waste every single change given to me.
the only thing you ever told me that i listened to, was to rest occasionally.
