Love to blame

Love is like an addiction,
Phrasing it so makes it sound wicked
But it is not so, it is not the same…
This addictions not mine to blame.
I was not the one to open my heart
I would have known it wasn’t so smart.
There’s very few people anyones able to trust,
Seeing as most people are into just lust.
Now with love to blame,
I’m stuck in an endless cycle with something impossible to tame.

Soulmate

Some people spend their entire lives
Trying to find a love like ours.

Always just to turn up in lies
Of relationships with nothing
To offer the mind and soul.
Putting in years of hard work
Just to end up endlessly hurt.

Blessed and lucky
To have found a love like ours
So young, so true.

Comforted in your arms,
I’ve found a place to call my own…
A place called home.

Home in your arms
Home in your heart
Gives me peace in my mind
Gives me peace in my soul.

Inspired by your mind
Inspired by your words
Inspired by your actions
Inspired by your very soul.

My soul has found its mate.

Marley related thoughts

“The good times of today are the sad thoughts of tomorrow.”

“The winds that sometimes take something we love, are the same winds that bring us something we learn to love. Therefore we should not cry about something that was taken from us, but yes love what we really have been given. Because what is really ours is never gone forever.”

These are two great quotes by Bob Marley. I actually cannot even say these are my favorite Marley quotes because everything that man said and did, that I know of, just poured out so much love. And I for one, know its safe to say, I am 100% a love addict.

For those of you who may not know what this entails, it is not a joke. Hear me out and take a serious ear on this one. Being a love addict means you have the symptoms of:
Overwhelming empathy at all times for all living being, plants, animals and humans alike. It may not be easy, but that’s the struggle of being an addict.
Another symptom is the need to socialize as much as be alone. The irony in this is a painful struggle. I daily feel the need to expend all the love burning inside me and give it generously out to all, especially in doses of quick smiles to strangers against the way.
As well, being around so many people who yearn for this love, I need to remind myself to love myself first as well. Everyone deserves to be loved and if you don’t feel like you’re getting enough you need to love youself more. Only you can provide enough love to suffice your hearts cry for love.

Well I got a little off topic here in talking about love and the need for it, but Marley was one smart man who knew about the need for love,
“overcome the devils with a thing called love.”

I really wanted to write about how much love can affect us and how little we appreciate it when its gone. The love we experience today is the love we’re going to remember forever. These winds that take and give, do so unexpectantly so you must love fully all the time. This is a bold statement to truely love everyone as if you might never get another chance too. Its terrifying to the core. I fear everyday I may scare those I truely care about off, then I remind myself if that’s how I express myself to feel good and they can’t appreciate it… I need to move on. I love very passionately to all, even strangers, and so when I passionately care about someone and show them passionate love, its a fury of uncontrollable energy and love. Then when the winds have taken these same loves away, we know we have done all we can to allow those we love to stay and a place to safely grow their roots. These loves will find their way back in one way or another form. Anytime love takes on a new form for me, it been better everytime. I can’t wait to see the man I’m going to marry. You bet I’m going to make his sweet ass feel like the luckiest man alive, but until then… I’m going to appreciate all the love I’ve been given and shown and just continue to put it out there into the universe.

One love, thinking of you all!

This truth

I wish it was October again, specifically, I wish it was Hulaween again. Halloween weekend String Cheese Incident hosted a beautiful festival and I met some beautiful people. That’s what’s expected right… but what wasn’t expected was meeting someone from the other coast who Id grow to care about, and think about almost every day. Things have changed since Hulaween, and things have even changed since I went West for Thanksgiving and maybe even since Miami. I wish I could go back to the Suwannee and just to wake up in the hammock curled in your arms, to cuccoon up when it started sprinkling to rain. You are one of the best dancers I’ve ever had the pleasure of dancing with still. These things I wish I could have back, but at least the memories stick. I could very much like to go back West too, around Thanksgiving time, when you were my solitiude from some sad, sad news. All those times together almost blur into one, but the moments that stick out, are so simple. And yet so incredible. Take me to that moment where I never have felt so alive. The energy you have and the energy we create is so unreal to me. Give me a beating heart in my chest, and a raging smile across my face so big the universe can hardly contain it. Give me Cheese. Give me the Love I found.

“I know that the love that I give, becomes the love that I get.”

An atomic wonderland

Its hard to tell where the edges
Of your body start, and mine begin.
In the essence of this magic our bodies have melded together.
In an atomic Wonderland.
Neutrons and electrons and protons alike,
Unite, in the beauty of being so close,
And so much a part of you and I.
Oh and how these waves of atoms dance between you and I
Forever across all spaces time.
