Do you know how long longing can be?

Childhood friends are something else. Years of silence, mistrust and pain vanish with that single 'hello' over a long distance call. And the fact that he recognizes your voice- its time to brush those tears that weren't called for.

How did you know its me?, I have to know.

I've called you too many times to hear this voice.

Let them fall, the tears.

And I lean on him across the distance... once again, after so many years.

Any remedy for the uncalled for tears? Apart from letting them flow?

Hi

I always wanted to ask, but I felt it would be inappropriate. But never mind, now I ask ;) - Why is it that your posts have a 'he', 'him', 'his' in it, always ?

You talk of childhood friends - you talk of 'him'. You could have picked a 'her' ...

You talk of so many other things ... There is a whiff of 'him' in everything.

You know, it kinda feels good to read. The Yin/Yang balance that it conveys ...and all that. It also subconsciously reminds me always, that the writer is a woman.

Curious to know .....

Of course, if the 'him' usage is for entirely obvious reasons, then my curiosity is rendered redundant immediately. But lets say it has some obscure albeit fresh reasons, something that can be shared ..... Plz do share it

Dear whencatrawman: I have written about so many oh-so-girlfriends too! :) And well, come to think of it 'he' is eternally more 'interesting' n 'unknown' than 'she'.
