How desperately I miss you, Beloved.

I'm listening to one of our tapes. Your voice has that sweet, warm quality it had when you were relaxed and happy and in love. You're reading about the age of enlightenment. During a section about enlightenment writers you query, "Okay, did you get all that? "  (I'd been typing.)

 "N-n-nope", I say---we laugh.

"I didn't think so. Okay, pull out a sheet of paper." Another round of laughter. "How about the ideas of Newton and Locke..."

"How about them?" more giggles.

In your best professorial voice, with a smile, "Well, let's explore these things, A. ..."  I laugh and melt just hearing my name.

A small pause, then plaintively, "Do I have to before we have SEX?!"

BIG laugh.

"Uh, yes. Do you have any questions? No? Then I'll proceed. Isaac Newton and John Locke had sex..."

And so it goes. Laughter. Intimacy. Joy. Ease. Love.

Life is bleak without you.

can i rise above
i built my life around you
landslide brought it down

A replacement for the video YT pulled.

Copying our notes deep into the night, I read this: 

As I sat in the shower this morning, feeling you, "I say a little prayer" played in my mind ~

I'm listening to Dionne sing it now.

Sending out endless prayers and love to you, My Heart and Soul. 

I'm infused with you. We embrace another day, and each other, as we always will.

I love you so, My Eternity.

Your Draughn

The lyrics say it all--what you were feeling then and what I'm feeling now.

forever you'll stay
in my heart and i'll love you
we never will part

Oh, how I love you. To live without you would only mean heartbreak. For me there is no one but you.

Forever, Draughn.

Your A.

You sent this song to me saying, "I listened to this while I was in the shower this morning, and I was with you.  I don't think you were looking for a place to hide, but the rest is true..."

so lost and lonely
you made me want to survive
love keeps us alive

now that i've found you
there's no emptiness inside
love keeps us alive

i would die for you
there's nothing i wouldn't do
love keeps us alive

 one day you told me

"you should be disappointed"--

not ever in you    


I'm dancing with you. We move freely, fluidly, pressed close. I vibrate from your touch. I feel the sunshine inside you. It fills my world.

keep moving don't stop
i know the time will come when
you'll be here always

wherever you go
though you are far from my arms 
my blessing's with you

I'm pretty sure John is singing about God, but that's not who I'm thinking of. :>)

lost as i can be
wrap me in your boundless love
we'll laugh 'til we cry

is it you calling?
my hands tremble my heart aches
i can't read your mind

love is what matters
if you ain't got no money
bring your broke ass home  :>)

Dancing with you, Baby, through thick and thin. Fly far, fly high, and I will always be there for you. Loving you. Rooting for you. Being your soft and safe place. Your heart's home.

long distance runner...
he runs for solitude and
a clear space to dream

strong legs carry him
testing his will and resolve
"run the mile you're in"

the sun crests a hill
"downhill--don't kill yourself--cruise"
and the miles roll by

"breathe--try to relax
i'm tight--my shoulders--my feet"
discipline trumps pain

"what does it all mean?'
lungs aching and legs burning
he drains his reserves

and then the breakthrough...
empty clean sweat-purged worn out
"i see--it's perfect"

I love you, Draughn.
