Stillness


You can live by your desires.

You can live by your desires.

Patience is a heartbeat away.
Find your way to feel free.

A breath takes a moment to connect.
Let this calm occupy your mind.
Clarity finds understanding intertwined with belief.
Peace becomes you when you find something fear can’t erase.
You cannot control the tides, only your place within.
You can live by your desires.
Is there a better thought?

Patience is a heartbeat away.
Let’s see what happens next.

Quotes: The Heart of Appreciation


“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.”- Seneca

“Celebrate what you want to see more of.” – Tom Peters

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia

“When you give appreciation IN ORDER TO get something– it’s manipulation and people can sense it. Appreciate genuinely.” ― Marilyn Suttle

“It’s funny, but have you ever noticed that the more special something is, the more people seem to take it for granted? It’s like they think it won’t ever change. Just like this house here. All it ever needed was a little attention, and it would never have ended up like this in the first place.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

“Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it.” ― Sarah Breathnach

The Young Love Property


Our love is too young to know what a conscience is.
We want what we want, everything else is but an afterthought.
We are blind at times because we choose to be.
I don’t want to see the things you do when I’m not around because I do not own you, you are still your own person.
You always get what you asked for, I asked to be broken and I’m beginning to crack with no one to confide in now.
We crawl so we can learn to walk again, its a sick cycle.

For what its worth I’m not even mad.
We should not be defined by our intentions but by our actions.
You told me what I didn’t ask to know, so I told you what you didn’t expect to hear.
It is what it is, now we just have to decide where we go from here.
No pressure, no loss.

Beneath the layers of black I’m burning red, with passion, with anger, and with a light that still remains unseen.
Was it by choice or circumstance that we ended up this way?
Save your strength, let me know when you’ve come to your senses.
Why does it always seem that somebody falls in love with you when you’re ready to give your heart away?

Give me a break, give me a reason to believe in.
You can save me from myself, but there is something that I must confess tonight, and that is that I expect nothing from you.
Alone I have nothing, but with you what do I have to hold?
Some wrinkles can’t be ironed away, in the same vein that some stains can’t be removed, but let’s not worry about those things.
I won’t speak of day old hate.

I’d like to think that I’m the only one with access to the high rises of you mind, all the way down past the ground level to the basement where your passion resides.
I want to get you so excited that you jump up and down without worry because you’re fully supported.
I just want to believe that I mean something to you.
All I want is you, although the pain it costs has me at a loss.
You’re the reason I’m waiting.
I’m waiting for a reason and you’re the only hindrance that I know.
I’ve got nothing else and I wouldn’t change a thing.
My heart beats bolder, not colder because of you.

How Do You Like Me Now? (Restraining Order)


By the way you move you must have a reason for every step you take,
I figure there must be fire burning in your bones.
Your heart is bigger than your body and it beats bolder than a crack of lightning.
There’s something in you that brings out the real person in me, even a blind man can see that.
Look past the surface, I’m afraid that I’m complicated, but there’s nothing to be afraid of.
If you can get me to like you, then you’ve got me.
You’ve got what I want, I’ll give you that.
I expected to love you, but I didn’t expect to be in love with you like this.

Well I’d rather not know where I’d be if I wasn’t chasing after you.
You won’t see it coming, though they all knew.
It’s always been there, in my stare and in my teasing.
How many times do I have to tell you to get out of your mind?
Get out of your mind and slip into mine and stay there as long as you like.
Love and insanity are somewhat connected, like a flicker to a fire or attraction to desire.
I’ve got what you want and you’ll give in once you say my name after yours and then back again.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, contradiction knows no equal.
We’re repelled by persistence although we love the feeling of the chase.

This is how it starts, first we deny it.
I can’t leave you alone for long, you know that.
We can’t have too much of a good thing.

Then we wonder about it, if only for a moment.
No one told me that your personality would be so addictive.
I’m what you desire.

Then we dance around the idea a little longer than we should.
I’m maintaining restraining this heart, just barely and you’re not making it easy.
I want everything right now.

Then we play games that we seriously shouldn’t, all the while waiting for our turn.
I push you away, just to pull you in closer than you were before.
How do you like me now?

And finally we give in, just enough to let it happen; a slip of the tongue, a slight of the hand.
If we’re lucky we’ll put aside the games and be real.
What happens next is up to you.
