Breaking yourself… Open

What I feel for you hides within my unguarded thoughts..  My guarded thoughts have become wiser with time..    The walls aren’t to keep you out,  They only serve to keep me together..    When you think I am closely observing you,  I am only looking at how I am moving into  yet another story.. …

You are just right.

You put your head against mine, Suddenly I am grateful for how tall you are, Your forehead sits just right on mine.   Your fingers find me gently, They caress parts of me, I didn’t know existed.   You snuggle into my neck, And I am grateful for the way you fit into me.  …

That’s how I Feel..

When I take off my heels after a long day at work,  And my feet find even footing again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take that first bitter sip of strong strong black coffee,  And the world feels right again.  That’s how you feel.  When I take off my work clothes and snuggle into…

You are perfect ❤️

You are perfect ❤️ Because every-time you smile, it makes me smile. Because when you are mad, you get cuter. Because when the wind blows in your face and your hair is all over the place, it makes me believe in goodness and nature, Because every-time you hold my hand, I feel I will not…

How do you touch me without using your hands?

There is somebody out there who wants to be with me I can feel it in the way he looks at me The way he tries to hold my hand The way he ruffles my hair  Or how he kisses me on the forehead.   But I don’t remember any longer  What falling in love…

The Dinner Date

We met each other at Chili’s. Just looking at him warmed something inside of me. It was only the 3rd time that we were meeting each other. After a chaste peck on the lips he sat down opposite me. I was both grateful for the distance and upset by it. Dinner was good. He had…

The Day After the First Night

I ubered back to my brothers’ very early on Sunday. He had a mid morning flight to catch and after last night I wanted to put some distance between us. Physically. As I peeled of my dress and got into the shower, I could see the marks beginning to take form.. around my nipples, under…

One of the Good Days..

It was one of the good days. She woke to him nuzzling her neck, whispering sorry for what he had said yesterday. She teared up and he kissed them away. All forgiven and forgotten. They stayed in bed late, him talking about one of his students who just refused to look at his books and…

Perfect Stories

That gruesome scar on his face, Suddenly becomes so much more desirable when you come to know that he got burnt trying to save a child, Those chipped front teeth You find funnier when she tells you she fell on her face drunk dancing, That hideous wristband on someone Becomes much more than a rubbery…

Pick effort. Pick yourself.

What takes effort is love Patience Generosity Gratitude Forgiveness Anger Jealousy Impatience Hate, are easy. It’s super easy to do the easy thing. We stick to the hard things as long as they are easy. The moment it gets tough, you ask – is this worth it? That point, precisely then is the tipping point….
