Want

I want you but not in the way you
mean it when you tell me the same.
I want all of you for my consumption.
I want to drink you 8 times a day like water.
I want your nutrients for breakfast and dinner.
I want to sink into all that you are then
I want to read you and write you into poetry.

Quotes for the Soul: Self Care

I know this “self care” vibe is trendy now but I really like myself. I really enjoy being by myself because self love could never feel lonely. In a perfect world, I’d turn my phone off for days and just zone out. I’ve mastered the sort of inner peace that makes me run away from anything or anyone that disrupts it. So keep following the “self care” trend. I hope you accidentally fall in love with yourself in the process. It’s truly a gift.

Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like your love yourself. Love yourself.” — Tara Stiles

Quotes for the Soul: Happy

We’ve got it all wrong. People aren’t supposed to make us happy. That’s way too much power. We’ve got to be happy with ourselves. Once that’s mastered it won’t be a matter of “he or she doesn’t make me happy”, but instead this person isn’t happy with themselves and that’s disrupting my energy.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”– Denis Waitley

Pollinate

I like the way you make me feel.
Kinda like the way my favorite 90s R&B song did
back when I thought I knew what love was.
The experience of you feels deeper than
that and this love thing we all chase.
Feels like I was just waiting for you to come
pollinate me so I could reproduce the parts of me
needed to sweeten your honey and bloom me.
