Lose

Interesting how we seem to find ourselves when we lose people.
Why do we find our rhythm at the end of relationships?
Because we also lose ourselves before losing that person.
The key is to never lose your rhythm while coexisting and it’s possible.
You just have hold onto you a bit harder than to you hold onto them.

Journey

We have to remember that we all have different journeys and being in relationship with someone in any capacity requires us to slow down and sometimes stop completely to allow them to take their exits while also not missing yours. You’ll still walk the same path at times but without being each other’s roadblocks. Life’s journey will have enough of those.

“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.” —Izaak Walton

Time

We intentionally took our time so our kisses
are full of tenderness and deep intimacy
instead of lust mixed with confusion.
Holding hands is now second nature and
random long hugs while waiting in a line
feels like we’re not even in this world
as we rest comfortably in the safety
we grew in the truth of each other.

Safety

I feel like I can remove my being,
place it in your hands and know without doubts
it will be absolutely safe there.
All my life I’ve been longing to rest in safety.
Exhausted from carrying around this heavy armor.
Afraid to reveal my fears, my truths, my joys
For fear of them not finding a safe place to land.
Until now, until you.
Though this may not be forever,
I’ll enjoy the much needed rest
the presence of you provides.
