Their Days: Sam & Erin’s Story #17

Early July




Deep within you there is a place of peace, breathe slow and easy and you will find it. It’s where your heart and mind can meet to show your truest feelings. Relax and close your eyes, let your worries fade to leave you as one with your passions and desires. If I am there with you, in any shape or form, there is a chance for us. If I am nowhere to be seen or felt within you then sadly the day has come for you to let me go. I have done this often and you are always in me. I see you all the time, but I ask you to honestly tell me if I am in you too.


I tell you honestly, Sam, you are in my heart and I never want to lose you. It is you I wake up thinking about, you who I eat lunch with and think about, and you who I go to bed dreaming about.


We have so much to talk about. Time and circumstance are not our friends, but for both our sakes I want us to work. I so want to hold your hand, strange man that I am.


No, you are not strange at all. Holding hands and giving each other a little squeeze is what I need more than anything right now. I just worry about being in your world and yes, you being in mine too – us being over before we’ve begun. We will both have to be so careful and take care to make us work. We will get our time, I am sure of that.




How is your friend? I hope she is well and on the mend. I broke four of my ribs a few years ago. It took a while for me to recover, but then I’m a restless kind of man. I sense that your injuries have healed, but please tell me you are okay.


My chest took most of the impact. I went a bit purple for a while, but don’t worry, I’m still in good shape! My friend is much better now, thank you and back in her own place. I think I’ve been driving her mad talking about you. I hope you don’t mind, I’ve been telling my friends about us. I can’t wait for them to meet you and for you to be a part of my life. Some of them have been a bit cheeky asking if you would be up for a three-some! Don’t even think about it, Sam, I’ve told them you are all mine. You are, aren’t you?

  1. Eric, I’ve already said that your posts are great posts, and I am reading them carefully. In most of them I get the impression that Sam and Erin’s talks painfully highlights their loneliness. They do not really talk TO each other; They talk PAST each other (even if the apparently talk about the same thing). They do not hear each other. And that is something that you do EXTREMELY WELL! each couple has moments like these.

    This post is a bit different. I have to think about 🙂
