Swings

I smiled when I saw this picture. It was one of my favorite things to do as a kid. Given the chance, I’ll swing today!

Have a great evening.

My Warrior Heart

How can
I live my
entire life
without being in
your heart

Being denied
your warmth
and light left
cold and in
the dark

Forever
without the
love and care
I’ve searched
for all my life

To have
my time end
all alone with
doom at its
climax height

My heart
it fights a
constant battle,
an endless
war inside

To look
in my heart,
is almost like
peering, into a
warrior’s eyes

Without your
love my heart
will die, for
without you
I have no shield

But not
even the death
of my warrior
heart can’t change
the love I feel

Written in Germany -Circa 1998

A resting place

 

“We find rest in those we love,

and we provide a resting place

in ourselves for those who love us.” 

~Saint Bernard Of Calirvaux quotes

You must learn her

dbd00fab42dfabab1582deab58f01f56

“You must know the reason why she is
silent. You must trace her weakest
spots. You must write to her. You must
remind her that you are there. You
must know how long it takes for her to
give up. You must be there to hold her
when she is about to.

You must love her because so many have
tried and failed. And she wants to
know that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.”

Somewhere, Someone

“Somewhere
someone
thinks they love
someone else
exactly like

love you.
Somewhere
someone shakes
from the ripple
of a thousand butterflies
inside a
single stomach.
Somewhere
someone
is packing their
bags
to see the world
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is reaching through
the most
terrifying few
feet of space
to hold the
hand
of someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is watching
someone else’s
chest
rise and fall
with the 
breath
of slumber.
Somewhere
someone 
is pouring
ink like blood
onto pages
fighting
to say the truth
that has
no words.
Somewhere
someone
is waiting
patient
but exhausted
to just
be
with someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is opening
their eyes
to a sunrise
in someplace
they have never
seen.
Somewhere
someone
is pulling out 
the petals
twisting the
apple stem
picking up
the heads up penny
rubbing the
rabbits foot
knocking on
wood
throwing
coins into
fountains
hunting for
the only clover
with only 4 leaves
skipping over
the cracks
snapping the 
wishbone
crossing their
fingers
blowing out
the candles
sending dandelion
seeds into the
air
ushering eyelashes
off their thumbs
finding the first
star
and waiting for
11:11 on
their clock
to spend their 
wishes
on someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is saying
goodbye
but somewhere
someone else
is saying
hello.
Somewhere
someone
is sharing their first
or their last
kiss
with their
or no longer their
someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is wondering
if how they feel
is how the other
they
feels about them
and if both theys
could ever become
a they
together.
Somewhere
someone
is the decoder ring
to all of 
the great mysteries
of life
for someone
else.
Somewhere
someone
is the treasure map.
Somewhere
someone
thinks they love
someone else
exactly like

love you.
Somewhere
someone
is wrong.”

Promise me

“Promise me
you will not spend
so much time
treading water and trying to keep your
head above the waves
that you forget,
truly forget,
how much you have
always loved
to swim.”

A kind of light

“A kind of light spread out

from her. And everything

changed color. And the world

opened out. And a day was

good to waken to. And there

were no limits to anything.

And the people of the world

were good and handsome.

And I was not afraid any more.”

~John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Think of you

“Go to work. Eat. Dream. Try to sleep.

Think of you.

Count the stars. Wake up.

Think of you.

Be here. Listen to what they’re saying.

Think of you.

Cook. Read. Watch TV.

Think of you.

Pay attention.

I’m thinking of you.”

Gypsy

I sold my soul to a traveling caravan 
And there my heart did play.

Sitting in a harp 
Waiting for a trap 
To make love fall its way.

Love is a word 
Which sparks these hurts 
From this fallen day.

I wish 
I had something 
To make love fall this way

Love is sticky, for we all know it true
Some days you just have to sit back,
And wait for love to find you.

Only You

447a881ab4b472c4580a1cd4c990b891

“Your salary is not love and your word is not love. Your clothes are not love and holding hands is not love. Sex is not love and a kiss is not love. Long letters are not love and a text is not love. Flowers are not love and a box of chocolates is not love. Sunsets are not love and photographs are not love. The stars are not love and a beach under the moonlight is not love. The smell of someone else on your pillow is not love and the feeling of their skin touching your skin is not love. Heart-shaped candy is not love and an overseas holiday is not love. The truth is not love and winning an argument is not love. Warm coffee isn’t love and cheap cards bought from stores are not love. Tears are not love and laughter is not love. A head on a shoulder is not love and messages written at the front of books given as gifts are not love. Apathy is not love and numbness is not love. A pain in your chest is not love and clenching your fist is not love. Rain is not love.

Only you. Only you, are love.”

My Darling

8411f8c38739d143a970ec287a0673ac

“My darling, you can’t see it,

can you? How like the moon

you are . Both of you so timid

in yourselves; hiding pieces

from the world. Then, there

are those rare moments when

you both are full, and it

becomes hard to look away.

You are beautiful.

-Alexandria Drzewiecki
