     I can't believe I fell for him. I promised myself that I wouldn't fall in love with him because I had been hurt so badly before. We promised each other that we would stay as friends and that we would someday part. He even warned me that he can only hurt those around...

    Pure Love Flow

    Please let the Love that flows from my heart be pure and selfless. Please take all toxic emotions such as jealousy, fear, envy, suspicion, selfishness, resentment, and feelings for retaliation from my heart so that I may love truly and completely.

    I Am Not a Pacemaker...

    If I want someone, my heart beats wildly, I get dizzy and long to touch them. I love them and want them to see me. How and why should I control who I wish to be in love with? That's certifiable.

    Heart Rules ...

    It's impossible for my head to rule my heart.  It's probably not wise, nor sensible to be this way but my heart rules me, that's just the way I am.  Even though I can argue with myself that I know I'm being ridiculous or that I know I'll only get hurt in the end ... it...

    Pieces Of The Heart
