“Make the world go away….get it … get it off my shoulder……yeah…make the world go away….say the things we used to say and make the world go away……”
He said,” I am a gypsy…I belong to the world… I left on my journey at 13. Ive seen a lot of people and ive been with a lot of women. Nothing you can say or do will surprise me as much as your presence does. This strong smell of yours haunts me everywhere I go. In a room full of nationalities you stick out like the green alien, except you’re red.
She said,” Gypsy boy I am a dream. Don’t try to make me a reality. Don’t try to own me and don’t try to limit me. Close your eyes and I will be yours forever.
He said, “I don’t understand what you’re trying to say. Come see me. I’ll make the world go away. Come to me….
She said, “I must work….I must focus…I must make money…I must not lust…”
He said She said They said
The world The world The world… didn’t really matter…
He said, “ Dream are you playing games with me or are you gonna come true? If not, you have to let me know for I have had the most beautiful love declaration last night. And I don’t wanna sleep to dream anymore.”
She said, “Fly with love my gypsy. Be happy. I will always be around flying with you in a distance watching over you and smiling. Go with love….fly fly fly…”
He said, “as you wish.”
She met him months later. In her world. He didn’t fit. But he tried. He sat on her bed and sang her Spanish folksongs as she drifted into her tent.
He said, “Lovely strong lady, you don’t belong in a tent. Unzip and Unlip.
He spoke of his current ladylove and she pretended not to look bothered.
He said, “She is beautiful … you know what she said….she said “ive been in love with you for 2 years and watching you…but you never noticed me once….so here I am…jump….” I was blown away.
She said, “that’s beautiful….love must be beautiful…”
He said, “yes it is….but love is like a dream again…..” POOF VANISHED!
She said, “ I wish…I wish…I wish….”
And fell asleep….to dream….
Elvis continued singing….nobody noticed….
“Do you remember when you loved me…
Before the world took you away..
Well if you do, then forgive me…
And make the world, make it go away..”
PS: being in a relationship is like sky diving…..it’s terrifying but you jump anyway….the thrill of the free fall.... The best part, when you binge on each other and every touch equals goosebumps. The feeling in your gut, the adrenaline, the rush, the gush, the blush. But at some point you feel like you’re gonna crash n burn so you pull the chute…and exhale in relief…you’re safe….in your mind….and eventually if you are an expert, you have a perfect landing on your two feet and walk away for another round.
Note to self:
In these days of recession, binging on love seems to be the perfect thing to do. Think about it…You don’t need food cuz you can live on soft kisses and air and you can stay up all night in candlelight discussing important issues like “who likes the other more” cuz it aint like you have to work the next day. So forget the protective gear and free fall till you can free fall again….Chutes don’t even work sometimes.
