Life’s cruelty held me down
it dampened me
became hardened even
but there lays
It resides deep down
in the folds of my being
From this place of
I will emerge
I will rise

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.
