I move in silence often. Mostly because I’m sensitive about my creativity. It has always been my safe place. From writing to my art, I keep it all close. But I want to share something special. A journal I created from the softest part of me. A journal to keep love notes. A journal meant to be shared between lovers.

I try so hard to hold onto to the
feeling I get when I look at you.
I snap pictures of you when
you aren’t paying attention.
The pics don’t come close though.
It’s beyond the stillness.
Its the energy, the connection, the love!
I see it all when I look at you.
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.
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.
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.
