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…

My idea of Love ❤️

I think of someone tall, with broad shoulders, a smile that lights up their eyes. Some salt and pepper hair, somebody who hugs with all their heart. I also think of how they pamper me when I am low, how comfortable they are with my silence. I feel how I might feel in their arms…

Inching to Perfection

We attract what we are.. we attract more of what we already are.. In every relationship, I look for where the person was damaged As if that might explain everything about them. In each conversation, I try to look for the implicit context, As if that might exactly be what they want to say but…

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…

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….

Disproportionately YOURS..

You have all my pics Even the ones that I am tempted to hide I don’t know why you collect mine! You can see the dark circles The double chin The open pores The growing eyebrows The smudged Kajal And you ask for close ups! Then you say “Wow”! I can’t find anything wow like…

Relationships are so much work.

Relationships are so much work. You’ve got to listen To understand To care To speak with love And then do it all over again. In between all that, There are those “I am crazy about you” moments. When you feel that this. This is what the universe had been planning for you. That kiss. That…
