About the Poem

This poem is merely one of many attempts to convey and express the longing for the one man who has touched the anatomy of my soul. A man I call Edi; many years my junior, yet, with a soul that reaches far beyond my own.

A thousand miles separate us only physically, yet, via email he has intertwined himself right into my inner blueprint. Only through the grace of God, will we ever meet.

We both know this and accept.

A Few Visitor Comments

I really like this poem because I am going threw a relationship right now and I feel empty arms but i know she loves me but she don't want to show it
I know what this is like. So many people think if you do the whole cyber thing your just desperate. no one really understands that it doesnt really happen on purpose. I loved it. Its nice to know im not alone with this
This touched my heart because it seems that it touches the soul of so many. Keep up the great work.
i loved it!

Full Heart, Empty Arms

Thoughts of you illuminate my spirit;
Never a flicker of flame, but with
Arching bolts which strike with a force
That disturbs my equilibrium.

My mind races as waves of passion flush over
My pale skin, causing me to gaze upon visions
Of impossible romantic possibilities.

Pathetic is this woman who anticipates the
True rhythm of love, with a man she will never hold.

My imagined discourse of thoughts leave me suffering,
As my lips quiver with the words I shall never speak
to his: "I have loved you more than anybody in this world."

I love this poem, cause it is written with simple words, words of love. Nowdays it is so difficult to trust people that. it is almost an act of faith to believe in someone you dont see or know. But feelings sometimes are stronger than mind, and despite of difficulties. you want to go on trying. Congratulations and thanks to the writer Valerie.
this poem was REALY good. i can relate because i am going threw the same thing at this point in time. this realy conferted me and made me feel much happier.
Wow. I really loved this poem. It really got into me. I loved this girl whose 6 yrs my junior. I love her, and she loves me. Though we're both Filipinos, but she's in italy. The only question now was, will we ever meet??? I always pray to God that someday, he may give us the chance to finally see each other in person. I really don't care when. I just wanted to see her. =(
As soon as I started reading this poem, it just touched my heart. WHY? I too, love someone so much that only God will know if my heart AND arms would be filled, by this man. "I have never loved any other, like I love him" I thank you, for this poem that touched my heart.
I love this poem because it speaks with truth and compassion and is truly from the heart. The author put a lot of themselves in this poem.

Your poem has touched my own heart as I strive to deal with my own full heart and empty arms with the person I have loved like no other, but can not be with. Thank you for sharing.
OMG! I feel like those words were ripped out of my soul. I to am in the situation of loving a man who is my junior by several years. who i will never meet because of his life obligations.
This is a poem that touched me so much, because of a lost and impossible cyber love. Never saw him and this poem reflected just my feelings at that moment. Incredible!
WOW. i can realte. there is this one boy named Rakeem that makes me feel that way and aslso maurse. GOOD JOB!
In the poem the poet says about the real LOVE, which a person want in reality. The poet shows the real love in few words so that any body can understand that what is the depth of love, tears of love and the sorrow of love.
this poem has touched my inner feelings. it is exactly what has been happening to me right now. love is really great, though sometimes it is unfair. I still love the guy i met two yrs ago and it hurts because he was too far away from me and there are a lot of complications if i told him how i feel. now, all i can do is just to love him as long as i live. no matter what happens, i still hope that time would bind us together.
