One Pre-Long Distance Relationship Evening

One Pre-Long Distance Relationship Evening

I could hear nothing but the crickets.
It's this time of the night that I am alive.

Not tonight, though.
He's with me, but not tonight.

I could hear nothing but my hearbeat.
It's one of these moments that it goes faster.

Not this time, though.
He's beside me, but not this time.

I could hear nothing but the loneliness in his voice.
It's a voice that could feather-tickle my heart.

Not this voice, though.
He's speaking, but not in that voice.

Yes, it is. But I'm up for it. Thanks, mach! You could try searching on They've got tons. Editing it will test your patience, but the result is oh so good! :)

interesting, like the solidarity of her heart...with one but knows it is not the other...even if the other is just a voice right now...long distance love is surely hard...

I'm trying to recall if my heart has ever been feather tickled by a voice ... By George, I believe it has!
