    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.

    Pieces Of The Heart

    I like to think of myself as an intellect. I try and think through every move I make in my life. I like to think of every move as an investment. That is who I am, to the core. Unfortunately not everything in my life really seems that way. I have made some strange choices and...

    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.
