Eternal You

Eternal You

Hi Guys, I haven't been on much lately because I've been dealing with some issues with me, and many times I don't feel like I'm a good enough poet to be on here(even though I've met some of the nicest people in the world on here, who give me beautiful props, like Cherie, Sparrow, Poetess, Twilla the Magnificent, etc.), but I don't want to lose touch, and hopefully, will come back better some time. 
This one, though, is for another friend on here. I think everyone on here knows that she is one of the nicest people in the world, and she's helped me through a lot, just from her friendly greetings. 
Sometimes I walk through this life, and don't even notice the things around me, because it's all just periphery. Life's more than just things and duties, and commerce, it's thought and learning, and love. Occasionally, you meet someone who's like you, and who understands you, and thinks as you do, and it's curious because you know you'll never meet them in person, but you've met their soul, and they've met yours, and they matter to you, their happiness, and feelings, and well-being, and their soul. 
Anyway, you know who you are. 
Thank you! 
Matthew. 

The universe, 
With all it's size 
A fleeting speck 
Within your eyes 

I thought that I, 
Could handle this 
But breathing in 
Has gone amiss 

Unending space, 
Envelops me 
Like wreckage in 
A bitter sea 

Loving you, 
Is something real 
But only as 
The gods reveal 

Brighter lights, 
There could not be 
I only wish 
That I could see 

Dying lives, 
And living death 
Reminders of 
Our final breath 

If I had only thoughts of you, 
Then all this space would not show through
And every piece of love would find 
The points of light from which we're blind.

Thank you, Sparrow! You're so nice. I've been a bit under the weather lately, so haven't been on much, so I appreciate you sticking by me, even if I'm not commenting much. I'm lost these days. 

Oh gosh, I've given up on love, it's a futile effort. Cupid despises me(he says 'Even though I'd love to shoot you, I'd rather do it with a high caliber pistol, rather than waste one of my arrows!', so that's not good. 
Anyway, I started dating one of the ferns in my office here, and it was going great(we shared deep, mutual interest in water, and sunlight), until I brought it flowers one day, and it ran off with them. Oh well. lol. 

Thanks Sparrow, you're awesome. 

Matthew.

Cupid doesn't mess with me anymore...

I grabbed him by his Diaper and took his arrow and put it in his butt...

It was a marvelous day!

Animals are better than people anyway...

Hugs again...

Thanks Sweet Sparrow, 
Love your sense of humor, and your kindness. 
(Note: I did speak to Cupid, and he confirmed your story, and said to tell you he is sending you a bill for the various salves and balms required to treat your handiwork, and that you will NOT be receiving any Valentine's cards this year. lol). 

Hey, I'm glad you did it. 

Matthew.

You're so nice, Cherie. Thank you for being you, and for bringing such light to this site, and to the world. Don't think it isn't noticed. 
A lot of really nice people on here.

what the heck, how can people leave such wonderful comments, and how can ordinary people write such inspiring poems?
this was really good, i think we all need someone to support, and encourage us through good times, and bad, hard, and easy.
whoever this was about is lucky to have you, and our lucky to have them.
this is really sweet.
:DDDDD
