On Being Vulnerable

One of the reasons why I focus so much on Universal Love is because I  love how constant and stable that Love is, like the unconditional love of a parent who loves you no matter what.

Romantic love can be messy, at least that has been my experience of it.  Although I've had my share of heart breaks, I would never give up on romantic love.  I believe romantic love is Love expressed in a human form and it can be wonderful. 

I wrote the piece below after a break up.

On Being Vulnerable

We are all supposed to be
Self-contained, independent beings.
Don't even think of opening your heart
When you're not sure
Of being loved in return.

Missing another is anathema.

Well, I'm not afraid to love
Till it feels like
My heart is going to burst into
Infinity and beyond.
I'm not ashamed to be vulnerable!

Shame on me for being so mushy!

I love being mushy,
Vulnerable and weak.
My poor heart is
Always open to love.
