Reminiscence and Break Up (9)


It was when I just came into icq world,
You said hello! In your friendly mood.
I was then afraid to talk and to know you,
For I haven't any clue of what kind of person I am chatting to...

 We chat a little bit, and then we quit.
 Not after awhile when I was back again on net;
 You came on line and send a , “Hi!”
 But I could not recalled, so I had to say goodbye!

 You helped me to remember you,
 By helping me to remember certain clue.
 I smiled to myself,  I was abled to recapitulate,
The last time we had met.

 That moment you shared to me your web page,
 It was beautifully made; I was so impressed of how it was made.
 I felt so honor to meet such intelligent human,
Full of knowledge and wisdom.

 As the conversation went on,
You asked about me, “Are you alone?”
I didn't know what to say,
For I didn't have a clue why you want to know about me.

You requested me to view my photos;
I shared to you my very first photo shoot.
You expressed I'm quiet different from all you have met;
You said to me:” Dear, You are most caring  I ever met on the net.

When I heard such sweet adjective words,
I tried to be tactful the best I could.
My heart started to beat faster,
For I have sense a future trouble might fester.

Because it's an unfortunate,
There's no more room for more than friendship.
You were persistently persistent!
To share your strong desire and interest.

I explained to you the three category of love,
And giving you a hint what is Eros, phileo and agape love.
You respectfully disagree with me,
You still saying you love me trully.

 For you haven't meet such a lady,
 So contrary like me.
I give in to your longing,
And took the imagination to the sea;

We were then enjoying the walk and talk,
And felt the breezed  blowing as we walk.
We enjoyed the forceful  sound of the water so brave,
Hitting the shore as they  playfully wave.

As the sun closer to the horizon,
The sea start to calm down.
With a gentle waves hugs the shore,
I feel the serenity of my soul.

 It was so solemn and peaceful moment,
When we watch the sun beam slowly hiding behind the mountain.
Just then we turn to each other,
Speechless staring one another.

With silent messages in the eyes,
A love that can't be satisfied.
The day has spent fully with so much fun,
Enjoying the nature under the sun.

 I suggested its time to head home,
I see dark clouds passing by and turned around.
The wind started to feel chilly,
And funny feelings hover all over me.

You beg for more moment along the sea,
To spend more time with me.
I have agreed about your plea,
And an idea  came to me...

 I reached out to picked up my harp,
I sang and played it softly...
The way you heard the melody,
It's just like serine on the sea.

Through the music you heard that day,
It stirred your inner soul and longed to be with me.
You stated to me, how much in love you can be!
You long to hold my hand and kiss me tenderly...

 But I said, “It can't be done.”
 For current is frictions, we might not be able to control.
The restrictions you have heard,
It causes you more to feel weird...

For you realized I was the one whom your heart adore.
I don't know if it is bad or good at all;
To fall  in love but in vain,
Is just like a food menu but cannot order in.

 If I ask my common sense,
 No one should ever trust the on line game.
But check what kind of love there in…
It might just an Eros love that was only temporary then...

It was then last night,
When we decided to break up.
Not because we hate each other,
But to avoid to get involved further...

We know it can't be done,
For the sake of our convictions;
To our faith and to our obligations,
Now my friend, goodbye and farewell!

Memories in the past can not be forgotten,
For it rooted down deeply with in.
The things we said and done,
Are curved deeply and it will never be gone!

What a wonderful reminiscence in the past,
Just remember my beloved....
My love and care for you,
Will remain intak.

Yes, it is painful to take…
When words of advice to forget.
But, I have faith in us,
That we will be alright.

 Will cause so much sadness and pain,
Thank you for your understanding.
Things just can't be continued between us;
But our  friendship will remain if  you will  ask.

Till heaven and earth standing
This Reminisce will remain;
Sealed with tears as I look up
Please enjoy this lovely break up.
