Long Distance Relationships
Welcome to the wonderful world of Long Distance Relationship (LDR)! While waiting to go back home and fully live your love story, here are 10 good tips to live well the remoteness. Hope it helps ! 1. Find time ! This is the basis. This pragmatic advice is in fact crying out with truth: a remote relationship that rolls is a relationship in which we spend time to see each other. There are some priorities .. so get ready to make at least two round trips a month for those who live in the same country, and for others, we wish you to win the lottery to go across the world as much as possible, at least once a month. The phrase OUT: "Sorry, I can’t come see you the next three months, I'm broke since my trip to Morocco with Emilia and Justine ..." 2. Give regular news ! It's stupid, but the distance magnifies anxieties and other concerns. If, in the same city, lovers can give themselves time to flirt and sometimes play hide-and-seek, to try a radio silence more than 200 miles apart, it's a real Russian roulette for your love story and for his nerves. Know it before daring a "no news" week. It's the worst thing you can do. The phrase OUT: "Yes, I saw your last 15 emails, I just didn’t have time to answer." 3. Skype less ! Skype is the false friends of couples at distance: we say that it is a fabulous technological progress that allows you to contemplate, talk to each other, get closer ... We are mistaken. Indeed, the most libidinous among us will soon feel the frustrating side of the thing, since we see and hear each other without being able to touch each other; the most pragmatic will notice the time-consuming aspect of the thing, the kind of having to return earlier to have a drink to catch his guy who has just woken up in Buenos Aires. Great. So let's skype better, let's skype less: greet each other for big events, yes, frustrating cyber-routine and illusory relationships, no. Replica OUT: "Nah, I can’t go see Camille with you now, I have a Skype appointment with Pedro in 1h" 4. Chat better - WhatsApp is your friend! Let's face it, the Facebook chat is one of the best and more practical app since the invention of the fax, or almost. but cautious: as strong as our feelings are, we are never safe from a misunderstood irony or a bad joke that falls flat between the lines of dialogue . Prevention is better than cure, so resign yourself to use an emoticon before swinging a nice malice ... It's crazy as everything goes better with that :)! The phrase IN: "I think it's not worth it to see you 4 days, it's way too long ...;)" If you make the perfect love with Kurt, a beautiful Berliner, and your iPhone 4, this wonderful application which, for the modest sum of 79 cents, allows you to send messages and is free abroad, is definitely for you. Use at any time, to send in real time a tender thought, a rotten joke or a photo showing your last meal, in a intimate and exclusive Instagram way. The replica OUT: "The problem is that I still have my old Nokia ... I'm waiting for the iPhone 5." 5. Know his adress ! First, his email address, because the personal mail is a mean of communication a little more "noble" for the LDR than the Facebook mail or the chat. In short, an email is great to send a Youtube link, train tickets, three lines of intimate confession, a prosaic poem, ... But the must is the mailing address, for a surprise letter, a package, or a postcard. Because romanticism should still exist. The IN replica: "What's your street number already?" 6. Ban jealousy ! Let it be clear: jealousy, in LDR, is forbidden. The precise questions of the tax inspector, the Gestapo-style interrogations to find out what he did on his Saturday night, and if there was a women in Lisbon, it's the open door to a certain end because of jealousy and hysteria. Remember that if you are together, it is not for nothing, it is even a hard choice since you are brave enough for a long distance relationship. So either you trust or you decide together to stay free and unclear on the subject without forgetting respect and good humor. Especially the good mood! The reply OUT: "Oh yeah, you're out Friday and Saturday ..?" 7. Maintain mystery ! Well, this advice applies globally for all love stories but in the LDR is a condition sine qua none: we must have things to say when we meet again, and not 2 hours on Skype about the latest confusion we had with our colleague. You have a daily life, so spare yourself the distressing heaviness of the insignificant details that punctuate it. Did you buy new ultra hot shoes? Good for you. He does not care. The phrase OUT: "This morning I was late so I did not have time to take a shower, so when I got to the office I did not wake up and it was funny because a colleague said that ... " 8. Send sexy photos ! The idea is to send from time to time some details of us, a cleavage, a look, a suggestion of our underwear ... Because after all, we do not catch the flies with vinegar. The sentence IN: "I just sent you an email ... I warn you, the attachment is not suitable for work" 9. Confess your feelings ! Careful : I do not encourage you to let go of "I love you" prematurely at the end of the line all the time ... However, if you used to be in the same locality ,the daily life had a weight that often dispenses with big statements ( falling asleep in the same bed six days out of seven says a lot about your feelings, for example). So, distance in love requires a little fuel, just to remember why we buy at the end of the day train tickets rather than a new coat or a pair of Miu Miu. The phrase IN: "I cannot stop thinking about you right now, I want to see you so much." 10. Avoid sad goodbyes Metro corridors, crowded train station platforms, airports crowded by busy or in transit travelers ... It's cute to stay with him until the end, except that in fact it only accentuates the separation and it's even more stressful for both of you. So let us prefer light and romantic farewells, goodbye at the end of the street, as if nothing had happened, is frankly more playful and encouraging than the tearfulness of the station ... The phrase OUT: " I can stay a little, just to say hello while you pass the boarding checks." I hope it will helps those of you who are in a LDR ! Good luck and remember : love is always worth any sacrifice !

Our Secret Code
I lie there looking at the sinking Moon far in the horizon as she disappears marking the end of a warm and wild night.
A Reckless Abandon
Somehow we look at our guardian stars wistfulness and hope for the next day or other amethyst nights spent embraced in lust.
Whole (Ch.1 Pt. 2)
*following Whole - chapter 1 - part 1* I didn't know how long I had been daydreaming, when a man came and sat on the bench opposite to mine. I glanced, a very quick look, just enough time to absorb every feature of his gorgeous face, before I felt my cheeks turn red, forcing me to stare at the floor. I was not looking at him, but I could definitively feel him undressing me with his eyes, sending a shiver down my spine, like a wave shattering every wall I had been building throughout the years. At this moment, I felt naked as never before, despite all the clothes I was wearing, and it totally unsettled me.
Long time did we spend, showing pyrites and telling false promises to each other. We kept secrets, hidden, dancing in the deep heart of mine. Without mercy, did we hurt each other, faking happiness with pink diamonds shining as a mask to our darkness. We said sweet goodbyes, or bittersweet ones, I hoped for healing hearts to hold the pieces, to blow the pain away, but all I could see was a storm, grey blue skies tormenting in my mind and the trouvaille of loneliness. I wanted to hear the call of the night the skies breaking with horrendous sounds, terrifying the daisy chains away, the only color left in life, I wanted it away, I craved the dark and silence an amaranthine divine disaster to shatter my soul, to send me away to the other side of life. I was going home, the one in the dreadful corner, in the dark emptiness, with nothing but music and memories and no sign of resurrection. My entire heart was a tropical fog, heavy, unbreathable, oppressive, I would never tell what was next though as I traveled longitudes of time I died a little bit more at each step. The rainsong in my heart stopped playing, torn between past love and stormy lightnings here was I, at the edge, the cliff of life was like a magnet, I saw a fall filled with promises, the flowering beauty of dark and devils the growing fernweh, travelling in the high seas of oblivion. No kiss of faith nor fields of red poppies only the midnight black skies, the unknown, a broken heart made of stars and murder ballads to guide me, a deadly rhythm and blues, to push me into death.
