Vulnerability

You have to be willing to endure
the risks that accompany unguarded
vulnerability because the rewards
your heart may receive are far greater.
There’s just an immeasurable beauty
that comes with being unafraid
to throw caution to the wind and
simply follow the path love flows.

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

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.

Regret

Love is what you make it
If you are capable of feeling
It is worth it to have love in your life
If it doesn’t work
then you learn from it
and make the next relationship even better.
But never regret
giving your heart to someone.

Can’t

I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of word far greater
to identify this kind of feeling.
Its like the moon finally got to kiss
the sun without igniting into flames.
Like God himself picked me up and
gently placed me in your ocean yet
made sure I could still breathe
while drowning in our existence.
So I can’t just say that I love you.
I’m in need of a word far greater.
