After awhile you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and sharing a life
And you learn that love doesn't mean possession, company doesn't mean security
And loneliness is universal
You learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises
You deserve someone who respects you enough to never lie to your heart. You deserve appreciation. You deserve loyalty. You deserve someone who would still be there for you even when everyone else has walked away. You deserve happiness. You deserve security. You deserve something...
between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats, with your head up and eyes...
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled...
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries...
but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." - Maya Angelou. I love her quotes, and I would love to pick up a book to read about her life. I have always believed that we are meant for something more. This is my creed.
you’ve found a person you are ready to reveal parts of your soul to.
Something stands out and makes the moment unique.
A profound multidimensional clarity resembling a piece of carefully gathered stardust; As if you are whispering “finally” and your eyes fill with light...
removed me from his circle. I am not mad or sad because once in awhile he was always there with a prayer, when I was very desolate and in regret. I have no ill feelings, really. He only made me remember a line from the last stanza of my favorite poem in...
I look upon the blue sky of clouds, I see heaven. A heaven of my own that I can feel. I feel freedom from all the pain and sacrifice I have to go thru. Pain and sacrifice is part of life. Life is very precious, how can I ever want to just give it up just like that. Giving up...
I'm sitting by the window on the Prague-Berlin train
night is falling
I never knew I liked
night descending like a tired bird on a smoky wet plain
I don't like
comparing nightfall to a tired bird
I didn't know I loved the earth
can someone who hasn't worked the...
For its one true love it can only miss.
Torn In two, weak and weary,
My soul looks up with eyes all teary.
My love is gone, no end in sight,
It haunts me in the darkest nights.
How much more must I endure,
For my one true love to bring the cure?

If you can't run, then walk,
If you can't walk, then crawl,
But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward!"

and not being bitter. It is agreement. It is friendship. Joy is a polaroid army crawling its way into life. It is being beautiful without a man telling you so. It is finding yourself warm enough for those lonely winter nights. It is finding yourself whole after so long...I know...
of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us...

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an...
