inside your heart


Inside your heart there should be love.
Not love put there by someone's actions.
Love put there despite of them.
Inside your heart there should be faith.
Faith that love can exist.
Even when we lose faith.
Inside your heart there should space.
Space to grow.
Space to redefine what love means.
Inside your heart there should be a list.
A list of reasons.
Reasons to celebrate the love.
Inside your heart.
Inside your heart there should be scars.
Hearts that never break.
Are hearts that never learn how to be whole.
Inside your heart there should be no expectations.
Expectations that hinder your ability to accept love.
Hinder your ability to feel love.
Inside your heart there should be hope.
Hope that inspires.
Hope that motivates.
Inside your heart there should be forgiveness.
Forgiveness for the person you are hardest on.
Yourself.
Inside your heart there should be something.
Something other than muscle and tissue.
Something other than pain.
Inside your heart you will find it.
Love that is.
Inside your heart you will search for it.
For the love you've misplaced.

    Happy V Day!
    Love gives naught but itself and takes naught for love is sufficient unto love (K. Gibran, quote from memory but the essence is there)!
    Kiss,

    today i will try to voice what i'm feeling, but i may fail because i'm not as eloquent as the words you write and that is ok...but i will try...

    i feel i need to reach out because you don't really understand and probably feel a little confused - and possibly a little more alone because of it.

    it's not because we are far apart.
    it's not because we lead different lives.
    it's not because we made different choices.
    it's not because i don't understand where you are.
    it's not because i don't understand where you are going.
    it's not because i don't love you anymore.

    it's because i once felt like i was always the one to reach out without a return.

    it's because i once felt like we were in a silent war - always competing for the same attention.

    it's because i once felt it was conditional to be your friend...

    it's because even though we are much alike, we still differ in many ways...

    it's because sometimes there are no reasons - life just happens - and i just don't know why. i just don't know why.

    but today i decided to voice what i was feeling - so its out there and can float away...

    ...so maybe we can meet on the dock for the first time, and be surprised to meet someone so much like each other - so different from each other - so amazing...

    today i decided that we've grown up.
    today i decided that all the reasons above no longer matter to me.

    today i decided that i still love you ...and today i decided that i will try harder to be a better friend to you.

    Happy V-Day (or at least the day after.)
