A Letter To An Old ForgottenLove

Their was once a boy in shabby clothes that swept into my life.
Fumbling and quietly I fell blind into his charms.
His smiles and brown eyes that took me in.
Beautiful torture.
Swiftly,boxing away my fears and tears.
Cigarette smoke.
Beautiful unrequited hopes.
Slowly killing the heart that beats. In time my sight was given, but sadly it was too late for the flower girl and the tramp.

I know you have experienced the darkness within you getting lighter. Your future together was starting to look brighter. Your conversations helped you escape and create something you truly believed that was fate. But to date, I know there is nothing more you hate than the fact that you took the bait and discovered it was never love to begin with so late. @PLECCA

Bury their remains.
Bury yourself in how they made you feel.
Bury yourself in the love they had for you, and the love you had for them.
But never bury the memories of them.

I believe that life brought us together
because we were meant to be
It was the right time and place
When we needed each other
To save and be saved.

You made me somebody
You gave me dignity
You nurtured me
Filled me with strength and purpose.

I am me because of you
And i know i can be me
Only if i am with you.
We are two halves fitting perfectly
Someone made for me.

I thank you for everything
I promise you love you and cherish you
Until i am free of this world.

I hope you feel lucky the same way i do
And that you believe in soulmates.

I wish you could accept me
And everything of myself
That i give you
You will always be my all
And this is my promise to you.

I am i love
Not just with
who you think you are
But with all of you.

I am in love
With you who shows me happiness by walking in
With you who is strong to believe in miracles.

I am in love
With your eyes that see right through me
With your hands and the way hold me

I am in love
With your smile that lights
up the my day
And with your ornery as well.

I am in love
With the trust you show me
With your faith for all the times you have put yourself in my hands.

I am in love
With the great that i see in you
And with the bad which you see in yourself.

I am in love
With the way you pick yourself up
Every single time
With your principles and ideals.

I am in love
With our midnight talks
With ...

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Love & pain are identical twins, inseparable, coexisting in fools like myself, chasing nothing but the bliss of an idea and bound by an undying sense of lingering impermanence.

Your insistent knocking against my walls has me on   pins and needles.
The way your voice echoes through the walls reminds me of a poison so sweet that still lingers on my lips from eons ago.
The urge to walk away from the wall is too strong and yet my feet stay put, waiting,
to see how far would you go before you’re trapped in a symphony of your own echoes hoping to find what lies beyond........

          “LETTING GO PT.1”

If u hate me that much
Than Let me go
U say that u love me
But i just dont know
U say my name like its gross
Ur eyes burn holes
U cant touch me
And my hands growing cold
Why did u even let go
I lie awake at night
Racking my brain
Tryn to think of all my past mistakes
That lead up to the moment
Where u started looking at me with rage
Tears seem to slip down my face
Im not one to admit
That i have all these feels

Do you know the thing I love about you the most?

Well, the first thing is your eyes. Yes, your eyes. Your beautiful eyes drew me into you. Your eyes are full of so much strength, beauty and wisdom.

I fell in love with you entirely, heart and soul but I fell in love with your eyes first.

What we have together is unique. It is a special bond that is strong and unbreakable. The little things you say to me always put a smile on my face. But when we are apart, I really miss you.

I don’t know how to tell you just how much I miss you. I love you till my heart could burst.

All I love, all I want, all I need is you—forever. I want to be just where you are and be just what you want me to be.

I try and be mature
But then i fail
I try and control emotions
Yet I am frail

I try and do the right
Break a bond so tight
I break down
Again.

Why is that
I complicate everything
Why am i such a failure
That everyone could be
happy
If they leave me ?

Why could i never be the girl
That someone could really love
All their life
Legally and forever?

Why is that am always bound
By loneliness
By fear
By uncertainty
Love and companionship
Remains unattainable !

I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential.

I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself.

I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness.

Believing in what I think he could be not who he has shown me he is.

Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.

Don't fall In Love With Potential.

There is a difference in loving the idea of someone and loving who they could be!

You have to love in reality

                                LETTING GO TAKES LOVE

To let go does not mean to stop caring, it means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off, it's the realization I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable, but allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means  the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another, it's to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for, but to care about.
To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,  b...

- Aching Beauty

Trigger in heart
Making things void
As we are now apart

Now I can feel
Why goodbyes are
Not too mainstreams

This gratitude
Inside me
Is making me believe
On this love
In you
And
On the things
Which we do
On the ways
That
We are onto

This ray of sun
On my face
Is reminding me of you
And your presence

The way they shine
You too provide light
To my every bit
And make me sublime

I am quiet
I am content
Oh god,
I am in love with you
All over
Yet again!

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Her Imperfections  are the Stars
Unique from the millions in my sky
Incomplete yet beautiful
Juvenile & wonderful
Twinkling & thriving
To make the cosmos alive around them
She is the constellation
Of those stars
Of those imperfections
Which I gaze with utmost love

I’d Like a Valentine

I’d like a Valentine;
Misshapen and handmade.
Proof of the lover’s time and efforts
Rather than thoughtlessly bought and paid.

I’d like a Valentine.
Cover it in mush!
Write the sweetness of your daydreams;
Silly things that make you blush.
Embarrassed observations, admiration and praise.
Appreciation of little rituals
That make you love our days.

I’d like a Valentine.
Please make it all from you.
All of you is what I love.
All your real. All of the true.
Because in the end it’s not the paper,
But the heart of you, I choose.
I’ll take them both, and hold them close, and never turn them loose.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Dear Kily,

Have you noticed that when most people speak the person listening is already creating a rebuttal? I find it fascinating that we have such a disconnect in our society. We want our words to be heard! But god forbid we should hear someone else’s.

I know this has gone on for some time. I often wonder as we spend more time on our devices if this is part of the problem. Maybe it’s not. Most likely it is.

I am still working on being present and part of that work is not having a cellular device. No smart phone, no extended cable, and I only use the computer at the library. I feel more free and so disconnected at the same time.

I carry books to read while I wait (or I knit). I talk to p...
