She Reminded me – Affairs of the heart, I have decided are a very unpredictable force. Some time ago through the power of Facebook I met a friend of a friend who happened to live far away in Indianapolis, Indiana and I of course lived in Denver, Colorado. I was intrigued and attracted to her beauty in a photograph, so much in fact, I even wrote a poem called “The Photograph”. We became Facebook friends and eventually exchanged phone numbers and as in such things we set up a face to face meeting and one thing led to another and we fell in love. She ignited my soul on fire and my mind was filled with all things about her and – us. Now I am here to tell you loving someone from a great distance as you can imagine is not an easy situation. Different jobs, different cities, different families, and way too many miles. She had a word for our relationship – tumultuous. Hell, I never even have heard of that word and had to look it up and you know what? It fit our relationship. Even though there was never any doubt about our love for one another our relationship faltered here and there and she/we/I decided the distance and all the issues associated with it we would just call it quits. Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? Did I mention we actually loved each other? Just like the moon and the stars are a force in nature, so are we – and from time to time we have to talk and remind each other that sometimes we can forget about the distance and the miles and just be us just for a little while.
“She Reminded Me”
She reminded me the way you looked at me,
No one else, I was the only one you could see.
She reminded me the way you stared into my eyes,
Of a lost forbidden love that cannot die.
She reminded me the way you touched my hand,
Everything about you and I was so unplanned.
She reminded me of our first kiss,
That moment of captivating tender bliss.
She reminded me the conquered feelings I felt,
Of our untouchable love that life has dealt.
She reminded me where our illicit love may lead,
Not understanding how our hearts would bleed.
