The bad guy has surfaced. You know the guy that actually uses honesty to communicate. The genuine guy that refuses to let you feel sorry for yourself, yes, that guy. You know, the guy that collects your tears every time life makes your eyes rain. You know, the bad guy, the guy that doesn’t allow you to settle, supporting your dreams but doesn’t support you sleeping with just anybody. You know, the guy that is so judgemental, they ask you to stay away from negative people and encourage you to surround yourself with positive people. Yes, That guy, the guy that Love’s you even when you refuse to Love yourself. You know the bad guy….
Open your mouth…. How is someone responsible for something you think they should know when you never told them? Communicate exactly what you want….Nobody should be expected to read between the lines, when you can be straight. Stop playing victim….You can’t justify staying, yet still complain about not leaving. You can’t expect someone to leave a person they can get over on. Be vulnerable….Put your heart on the line and test how strong your Love truly is. Challenge your relationship with honesty regularly. Open your mouth….Stop being a coward, hiding behind your right to conceal; you are in a relationship, nothing is yours anymore, it belongs to both of y’all!!!!
Your eyes roll in your head, playing your instrument, until the concert ends. Drops of sweat pour from your face, the moment slows, you sing pleasurable tones, moaning into the mic. My fingers stroking each string, producing music, which blend with your vocals; cord after cord means more and more, we connect as one band, the crowd explodes. We take a bow….our intimacy will link us for life, we have made history.
Telling me I need to change, but it’s going to be my consistency that causes us to remain; my tough Love and tender heart, my ability to be there when you need someone the most, my ability to get the most out of someone. The consistency that allows you to say he will show up when everyone else doubts. The consistency you can trust he isn’t cheating because it wasn’t mentioned. The consistency that you can believe enough to be faithful to. If I change an inch it may push us a mile away; if I change an ounce it may create pounds of problems; If I change, you won’t recognize me because I wouldn’t be the same person you fell In-Love with. Change is a constant in the world, but why should I change when I am the only thing that is consistent in your world. I worked to find myself so I can find someone that knows themselves, but I guess I have to find someone else because you’re still searching for yourself if you’re telling me I need to change!!!! AB
With you in mine, there is never enough time, but when I am not thinking of you, time tends to slow. We have accumulated hours, the minute, we second guessed the relationship. We knew it was a perfect match but we doubted the connection because it fit so permanently; we lost what was concrete trying to stay surface. Now, we can’t seem to deepen the bond because our hearts have went shallow. So, now my days are left slowed because my thoughts of you are frozen, and I am left to search for someone else that can speed up my days again….
Her eyes, damn her eyes, stopped me in my tracks. I had some where to be, rushing to get there, and one glance captured me. She smiled, knowing she had me, knowing where ever I was going she has become my destination. I walk toward her, eyes still locked, thoughts unlocked. I am picturing life and she is in every frame. I have yet to get her first name and already I want to give her my last. I couldn’t pass on this opportunity to witness Love at first sight. Approaching her erased every bad experience from my past, I know for sure this time it will last. Introduced myself, nothing clever, simply my name and an exchange of numbers. My life changed by not looking away and staying focused on a moment in time, that was meant to be mine. Her eyes, God bless her eyes, put me on the right track with forever in sight….
We can give our souls to a friendship and still watch the hands on the clock slowly tick to the end of it. We can put our faith in another human life, just to be reminded that faith goes both ways. We can experience the strongest punches of pain, but we get back up. We continue to search for people that make life worth breathing and in those breathes, we remember hope fuels Love, and in an instant we are transformed to only seeing the pleasures of reaching our destination….
