My Love is Fierce

  “I don’t love casually.

When I love, it’s fierce.

It’s my soul ripped wide open and raw.

It’s my whole heart on display.

It’s all I have and everything I know,

handed over to you, like a gift.

And I hope you unwrap it gently.” ❤

My Compliment

My soul is searching for its other half.
I am whole; I am simply seeking my compliment.
I long to explore the world in search of them.
To grab hold of life while taking hold of their heart.
I need a love story to believe in.

An Army Wife’s Promise …

(Photo by Corporal Reece Lodder, 13 JAN 2011.)

I cannot promise that I will not become frustrated when you leave me and the world seems to fall apart around me. I cannot promise that I will not curse those who sent you when the dryer breaks, and the transmission needs to be replaced, and the dog eats the couch all in the same week – most likely the week after you deploy.

Friendship

tumblr_lp29loVPzA1qf57co

“They had battled and bloodied one another, they had kept secrets, broken hearts, lied, betrayed, exiled, they had walked away, said goodbye and sworn it was forever, and somehow, every time, they had mended, they had forgiven, they had survived. Some mistakes could never be fixed – some, but not all. Some people can’t be driven away, no matter how hard you try. Some friendships won’t break.”

Entreat me not to leave you

 “Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you: for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people shall be my people…”

To be loved

“I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”

You Know Where To Find Me

You know where to find me

When you’re on your way out
All bustle and busy
Enough is enough
Because life’s sweet assemblages
Equate to driftwood away
Be still with meYou know where to find me
For no particular reason
To stop traffic behavior
Or to get something off your chest
Cause we go a long way back
Back to nothing at all
Mmmmm
Be still with me

Won’t you be-
Be still with me

You know where to find me
If you think it’s all over
I can sense it a mile off
It’s no friendly hello
You could be screaming drunk
Well I’ve got my bad days too
I’m gonna be here for you
Be still with me

In a public place, private thoughts
A reminder of a precious loss
(you can be a source of constant reassurance)
Let the breeze block sadness drop
Won’t you be-
Be still with me

Don’t mistake my charity
For what it is
Deem me into believing necessary
Don’t mistake my open arms
For what it is
They can turn on you
So show me the money.
Show me the money.

Blue and green,
Fresh eyes on me
I’m young again
All things to mend with
Bite-size life boats
I’ll fix your smashed up head

Be still with me
If you want
To be alone
If you’d rather die
Then tell
You’ll know where I’ll be
Where to find me
For high talk
To cut it off or bring it on
A proposal
If you’re broken,
I’ll be here,
I’ll be here.

State of Love

 

The ultimate state of love

is freedom, absolute freedom, and any relationship that destroys freedom is not worthwhile. Love is a sacred art. To be in love is to be in a holy relationship.

Best Friends

Only once in your life,
I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. Read more

Lead Me Home

The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past, and recognize that every day won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember, it’s only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you back home.

Awaken

The Awakening

By Sonny Carroll

 

There comes a time in your life when you finally get it …

When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out “ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on.” And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes you begin to look at the world from a new perspective.
This is your awakening.

You realize that it is time to stop hoping and waiting for something, or someone, to change, or for happiness, safety and security to come galloping over the next horizon. You come to terms with the fact that there aren’t always fairytale endings (or beginnings for that matter) and that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you. Then a sense of serenity is born of acceptance.

So you begin making your way through the “reality of today” rather than holding out for the “promise of tomorrow.” You realize that much of who you are, and the way you navigate through life is, in great part, a result of all the social conditioning you’ve received over the course of a lifetime.

And you begin to sift through all the nonsense you were taught about:-how you should look and how much you should weigh,
– what you should wear and where you should shop,
– where you should live or what type of car your should drive,
– who you should sleep with and how you should behave,
– who you should marry and why you should stay,
– the importance of bearing children or what you owe your family,

Slowly you begin to open up to new worlds and different points of view. And you begin re-assessing and re-defining who you are and what you really believe in. And you begin to discard the doctrines you have outgrown, or should never have practiced to begin with.

You accept the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will love, appreciate or approve of who or what you are… and that’s OK… they are entitled to their own views and opinions. And, you come to terms with the fact that you will never be a size 5 or a “perfect 10″…. Or a perfect human being for that matter… and you stop trying to compete with the image inside your head or agonizing over how you compare. And, you take a long look at yourself in the mirror and you make a promise to give yourself the same unconditional love and support you give so freely to others.
Then a sense of confidence is born of self-approval.

And, you stop maneuvering through life merely as a “consumer” hungry for your next fix, a new dress, another pair of shoes or looks of approval and admiration from family, friends or even strangers who pass by. Then you discover that “it is truly in giving that we receive [1] and that the joy and abundance you seek grows out of the giving. And you recognize the importance of “creating” & “contributing” rather than “obtaining” & “accumulating.” Read more
