Choice

He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day, Choice: that was the thing.

just like that

And just like that, he picked her up and dusted her off.

Without even trying. That’s how their love was.

When she was at her worst,

he saw her at her best.

Light your way home

“I’d cut my soul into a million different pieces just to form a constellation to light your way home. I’d write love poems to the parts of yourself you can’t stand. I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark.”
~ Andrea Gibson

As you please

 “I give myself to you:

My hunger, yours; my body, yours to consume;

my lips, my mouth, my teeth, yours to put where you want them;

my hair, my flesh, yours to cut, to tie, to pull, to enter;

my every thought, yours to turn into words, yours to ink on your skin;

yours… the length of me is yours to do with

as you

please.”

My rainbow

You are
My rainbow skillfully painted above the sky,
Making me glance and leave a sweetest smile,
Making me walk with hope even a hundred miles,
To follow you where your mystery lies,
And spend with you and believe love never dies.

In this life, where rains and storms are downfalls,
I will be here for you even the bridges crumbles,
In this life, when my dreams are shattering,
You are here for me, making my life worth living.

I am
Your sunshine after every morning rain,
Caressing you with love and ease your pain, o
Touching every colors with love and grace,
Until my everlasting warmth brings you peace.

In this life, when days makes you blue and weary,
I will be your sunshine to brighten up your day,
In this life, when joys and pain makes me cry,
You will be my rainbow until the day I die.

I will always be the sunshine of your life,
You will always be the rainbow in my heart.

Maia Padu

My Runaway Heart (Fell In Love With You)

Foolish,
wild heart slippery creature.
Of course I know better than to let my foolish little heart near you
But I’ve never been a good master
Letting it ride out on my sleeve
And now it’s run away.
To be fair, you did leave your door cracked.
And in this cold world,
Who can blame my heart for seeking the warmth of your hearth?
So it stays.
Perhaps you know it is there
And so you keep the fire stoked
That is what I like to think when I worry and wonder:
How I could have been so careless to let it get away?
For you are not like me
You keep your heart safe
Fiercely guarded.
I like to think that one brave day
When I tell you about my stowaway heart
You will say I know,
It has been keeping my own lonely heart company.
A soothing thought.
But if instead you put it back out into the dark night,
I won’t blame you
You can’t be expected to keep watch of a wild little heart not your own.
Maybe I will learn to be more careful with my heart the next time ’round.

A love like this

“We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.” 

― Nicholas Sparks

“I admit,
I was afraid
to love.
Not just love,
but to love her.
For she was a stunning
mystery. She carried things
deep inside her that no one
has yet to understand,
and I,
I was afraid to fail,
like the others.

She was the ocean
and I was just a boy
who loved the waves
but was completely
terrified to
swim.”

What it was

I think she was afraid to love
sometimes. I think it scared her.
She was the type to like things that are
concrete, like the ocean. Something you
could point to and know what it was…And
I think that’s why she struggled with love.
She couldn’t touch it. She couldn’t hold on to it
and make sure it never changed.”

She didn’t fear being  committed, she feared being abandoned. 

if she’s amazing

If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy.

If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing.

If she’s worth it, you won’t give up,

If you give up you’re not worthy…

Truth is, everyone is going to hurt you;

you just gotta find the ones

worth suffering for.

Budding wings

 

“We have not come into this exquisite world to hold ourselves hostage from love. Run my dear, from anything that may not strengthen your precious budding wings.”

What, is love?

“That’s love: Two lonely persons keep each other safe and touch each other and talk to each other.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

They must always come together

“Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other… I know I’ve spent each life before this one searching for you. Not someone like you but you, for your soul and mine must always come together.”
