it’s not what i say. it’s what i don’t say. it’s the heart, the kiss, the thought, the gifts i give, the things i do without expectation, the sincere apologies, the honesty, the way i spend my time, the words i write, the dreams, the touch, the secrets, it’s the passion, the selfless actions, the motives, the intentions, the way i love, the love i give, the beliefs, the opinions. it’s not what i say that defines nor determines who i am. it’s what i’ve never said.

in the state of being
this was a choice between who i should be and who i am.
i’m not normal and i love every minute of it.
i take initiative. and i laugh.
i can be weird but i make things fun, i make
things interesting. i like that.
i like to make people smile. and think.
i trust in what i feel inside. i try.
my perspective is different and it cannot be
injected with the poisonous thoughts of a
i believe in love.
i feel. and when i feel,
it’s honest. it’s real. and
and nothing in this world can change that.
i want to kiss you, deeply.
i want to know you. i want to know
the parts of you, no one else does.
i want to know your secrets, your passions,
your fears. i want to be there.
i want to make your life more beautiful-
your existence is a breath of fresh air,
lingering within me,
for months, weeks, days, hours.
you were just a stranger in my midst who
intrigued me with your beauty.
your presence, though new,
has made my life more beautiful.
it has made me believe. and know,
that i am not alone in who i am
and what i believe in.
sometimes in protecting the person that we care for, we must make difficult choices. sometimes the truth is so painful we try to shield the people we care for from it and they get angered by our actions but if they knew what we had really done, they’d know.. no one could care or respect them more to commit such an action for them. people do not make painful decisions without a great cause to endure such pain. and when someone cares for another, they never wish to burden them with their own problems. but if we carry the burden alone, it takes a toll on us. it causes us to look for comfort in the wrong places and vent it out in the wrong way because we’re going crazy inside. sometimes we have to be honest with those we care for and allow them to be there for us in moments of pain because if they truly care, they will understand.
sometimes love means walking away.. not giving up but walking away.. because you know in this moment it won’t make a difference.. so you gotta just keep it in your heart & in the right moment, you speak that truth buried deep within your soul.. because you know.. in the right moment.. it will make all the difference.
