I hope you feel at home amongst my words, and I hope you enjoy the important spaces in between them just as much…

Welcome to my thinking out loud…



Posted on 15 July 2021 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud


The farther away I go, the closer I feel
The further I feel from you, the nearer we are


When I close my eyes, I can see you
Only in silence can I hear you
Only in my solitude can I feel you


In my dreams, you are a reality
In my reality, you are a dream


You live only in my memories
Yet you exist in my future


You were a passing moment to the cosmos
You were the universe to me
You shaped the world that I inhabit
You filter the thoughts I entertain
You critique the words I use
You feedback on the attitude I display

You are not with me, but part of who I am


I cannot recall who I was before you
I cannot recall a time without you

I cannot, and I will not


Evolution does not operate in reverse
Progress does not head backwards
Expansion does not result in shrinkage
Transformation is metamorphosis and renewal

I was, became, we are
We were, became, I am


Intertwining the double helix
Genetic mutation complete
One plus one equals three
