to a life
unknown to us.
Seeking out the adventures to be had.

feels like it’s over
done it all
seen it all
had it all
to look forward to
think I’ll go now
The inspiration for this piece came by way of Peace at Noon – Fabrice B. Poussing
*deep sorrowful sigh
I’m sorry. So, so sorry.
I didn’t succeed in saving you from your fate.
You’re broken now. The trust is gone, and so are your reserves. Your faith in love is shattered. It seems utterly unbelievable to have made it to this place of darkness. But you’re here now… and I’m hurting with you, dearest.
Oh pain, please just go away! Leave him alone. The agony is too much for tender shoulders to bear. Ease up… I beg you.
You’ll get through this, people say. It doesn’t feel like that when you’re in the thick of it though. But know this… I’m here till the tears stop rolling, the deep ache subsides and the reality of moving on alone becomes easier to accept. Whatever you need, love… I promise.
I’m here for you. Always.

Love soothes, but only with genuine empathy.
Don’t remove the struggle from my control.
Let me gain the knowledge I need to grow.
Be by my side, watch me heal.
See the places where it takes me.
Love doesn’t fix things. It just eases the conflict.
Don’t be the answer to my problems, my wannabe protector.
Be my companion on my own personal journey.
Enjoy my company, enhance my experience,
and inspire me by the path you take.
Love doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It needs you and me, together.
Free from distrust, anxiety, worry, anger, and shame.
It’s a warm place, filled with comfort and ease.
It’s a space where wholeness resides.
Our happy place created together.
Love feels easy, but people are hard. They’re complicated and stupid.
Don’t sabotage a good thing, intentionally or unintentionally.
Remember I’m who you love; you know why you do.
Fill any distance with kindness and care.
Especially those times when you’re sad.
Love always wants more quality-rich lingering moments of sweetness.
Any effort on your part to provide them is cherished.
Your reward is acquiescence to almost anything.
Comfort and pleasure is our prize.
Don’t hold back. Give me what I crave.
Love is required. And love is needed.
Your actions made me feel like I wasn’t special to you.
I was important to you. Did you show it?
I was a good friend. But not enough for you.
You loved me unconditionally, but I was too much to take.
I was unique and different, but I was too combative.
I was such a role model, but indeed too honest for you.
It’s good that I’m honest. But I just wasn’t sensitive to others.
I was just me.
And you didn’t know how to take me.
Then I doubted myself because of you.
I shouldn’t have.
Our connection ceased to exist because of your selfishness and your ego.
A war of two individuals with no victory for you or me.
You gave up while I was actually still fighting for us.
Then I let you go…. willingly.
Self-preservation was required.
I realized that all you would do is continue to injure me.
I am important.
I have value.
I am special.
And you will never fuck me over again.
rest comes in stolen moments
life on hold, again
I can’t help you resolve it all.
But I’ll do what you can’t.
Until you’re stronger,
I’ve got you.
I’ll do my best.
Please do the same.
What hurts you,
injures me too.
Let’s work together.
Then tomorrow it will be easier.
For the both of us.
thankful for the serene moments
a gentle perspective prevails
a wholesome gratitude unfolds
giving way to peace
and harmony with nature
a feeling of having more than one needs
an abundance of security and ease
every breath taken is enough
my mind is clear
and my soul is content
oh, faithful beacon
shine your light so bright and clear
my guide to safety
