My God, it’s been 4 years and 2 months since we began our correspondence. Not a day, hour, much less a minute goes by that he doesn’t cross my mind. I love him with every fiber of my being.It hurts like fucking hell sometimes, like right now. I have to hold back my tears because i know everyone is sick to death of them. People ask me daily; “how’s it goin”? You haven’t moved yet”? “”when are you getting married?” I mean EVERY DAY!!!, No exaggeration… My answers are not always clever or truthful because frankly, I do not have these answers. I continue to live my life, sheltered, minimally active and alone. Most of the time i’m content. Knowing that one day, not to long from now; I will have my fairytale life.. That’s if- he waits for me. OH, ok ,,, but wait……here comes my best friend: ————FEAR- If you didn’t have it, you’d be the most pompous ass on this earth. We are 6000 miles away and see each other 2x a year.. Monogamy is not a chore, I don’t have an issue with that, i’m no spring chicken so that part of it is manageable for me.. Intimacy is different, it’s deep, it’s penetrating and pushes and tugs the heart. Even still, we have managed, what has gone on, all the challenges, the break-ups, the heart and gut-wrenching tears—- I would do-over, in a heartbeat. No, not desperation- It’s love at its deepest and most realistic level. -Josie Willis
