I am the keeper of secrets
They tell me them all
I value my word and I will go to any cost to keep it.
Promises that are easily held out are attainable
To come to the reality that what I thought was true wasn’t…
Time heals all wounds they say
I grieve and mourn the one whom I trusted beyond the heavens
I wish you well on this journey
wished we were on it together
I love too much, at a rapid rate
it’s like an infection, but of a blissful kind
I feel things deeper, to the point where it affects my cells
My body will actually tell me if the choices I am making are for better or worse
The trick is listening to your body
quietly and carefully
one can love in such electrifying ways without even a touch
a soul love so deep it is overwhelming
almost as if enveloped in a warm safe coccoon
i used to pride myself on this love
until I realized this coccoon is no longer safe to remain
As hard as I try to spread my wings, there is friction
when I am alone I gain momentum and see possibilities of the future
it’s scarey at times when i know deep within, the love i thought i knew won’t be a part of my reality anymore.
that old saying if you love someone set them free
if it was meant to be it will come back
I have already predicted the future outcome of this all
the hardest part is coming to terms with everything I unfortunately already knew.
by speaking the truth and staying firmly grounded
new doors are opening
doors of kindness and compassion
this entire time I have been imprisioned in my body and mind by lyme
it was the owls and the birds that kept me going
the sheer brilliant high, the enveloping love, that kept me safe
now there is a new path, with new forms of love who do not judge, who say exacty what they feel
once one sheds the darkness, there is only room for light
and light attracts light
I am now at the point in my life where I can get AS excited about people as I do about owls.
Never did I think this was even a remote possibility
Patience I must learn, for this is my biggest flaw
