I’m at a loss

I’m at a loss

As I lay awake last night
Contemplating my life
I felt it in my heart
It hit me as sharply as a knife

I love you

And I know you already know
But I’ve only come to realize how much I truly do
I love you so much, That I don’t know what to do
Don’t know what to do with this love for you

It’s burning my soul
With its sheer amount and intensity
I am legitimately at a loss
at what to do with this density

Do I wrap it up and tuck it away?
Or do I allow it to have its way
Would I scare you off if I told you this?
Or would you give a gentle kiss

Would you want to escape from it?
Take your chance to split
Or would you be filled with happiness?
Feel the pure and raw tenderness

It scares me but I know
My self-awareness is rather slow
But now that I know what I know
It’s hard not to show

I love you
I love you so much

Though what to do with this overflowing heart
I haven’t the slightest clue.

A Vow To Myself #Poetry

I asked for your blessing…
instead you explained

What I should be thinking
to lessen your pain

You told me if only
I’d say it this way

My words could have meaning
and influence—sway

But power and fortune
are not what I sought

If influence only
gets brokered and bought

So the blessing passed over
your lecture now done

A vow to myself
—from you I must run

Two honeybees in search of pollen,
we found each other on the same flower.
We dance around,
forever tumbling in each other’s arms.

Being together,
we make the perfect honey;
sticky, sweet,
rich, and raw.

Bee mine forever
and I promise,
We will always be loved.



Betrayed by a Glance #Poetry


The mistake was the look
-She won’t see-
-It’s just a glance-

So I looked.

And She saw
-Caught my eye-
I looked away.

Too late.

I can see her eyes
When I close mine.

I am betrayed
-Not by love lost-
-Not by her-

But by that look.


10 Important Quotes About Love

Love is arguably the most powerful force in the world. It has the power to motivate humans into doing just about anything. It has been immortalised in art, literature, and song for as long as known recorded history. It is from love that protective instincts arise towards offspring of any species. It is perhaps the most important of all human emotions, and vital for our survival.

I have known love many times in my life. The deep, rose-tinted, falling in love where worlds of beauty and promise are made. The unconditional, ever-lasting love between family, best friends and soulmates. The fickle love at the sight of a perfect stranger.

I have also known heartbreak. The profound, painful, heart-ripped-out-of-your-chest type heartbreak. The heartbreak where you don’t want to face the world for weeks or months because yours has shattered before your eyes.

What I’ve come to learn is that the two will almost always come hand in hand. Heartbreak is the risk you take for loving someone so deeply and purely. Ultimately it’s worth the risk – it’s so much better to have experienced love than not at all, as the saying goes.

I hope you find solace and inspiration in these thought-provoking quotes and lyrics.
