One day you will come across someone who will leave you completely in awe of them. Their kindness, their sincerity, their heart and the beautiful soul that you will get to know will leave you speechless. You will be shocked that people like this exist too. People who you only read about in books. The kind of people who are just filled with good vibes and positivity. The kind of people who make you laugh, smile and regret that you didn't meet them earlier. You will look at them and wonder how it was possible that someone else didn't see what you see. How it was possible that someone let them go without digging in deeper to find a beautiful universe within them? You will ask yourself how you got the opportunity to meet someone this amazing and those before you didn't notice their light in the way that you do. Or perhaps they did but they didn't look any further. And one day when you come across someone like that, who is the definition of every single thing that you've ever been searching for, you'll feel glad that those before you didn't know what they were losing. Because you do.
Have you forgiven yourself?

Your smile it seemed, siphoned off any longing which departure usually cradles in its palms. The low humming, almost a metallic grumbling from the planes taking off seemed like a person mumbling good bye to nothing in particular. You look at me and tell me that whatever we had was about to take off towards a sky which couldn't hold both of us. This is the irony; you are going to be the one who flies, but it's me who can't hold my own ground. Like feeling dehydrated in front of a sea. The airport air is stale, as if it's borrowing breath from panting airplanes. We overwork our emotions just like them, I think to myself. Your hands are leaving mine, and I don't really know what I'll do with them anymore. You smell oddly of butterscotch, and I'm trying hard not to close my eyes. "Don't try to find me", you tell me, as if you aren't going to land once you are mid air and you probably won't. At least for me. Your silhouette breaks my reverie, and I, in turn, break my heart. You fade away, as if the airport gates are teeth waiting for a morsel. Everything is quiet, someone around me has just finished smoking. I turn around and there it is, a cigarette stub still fighting to linger on top of a trashcan. The smoke not enough to color the sky in watercolour grey. Everything is unnaturally quiet, the 'Use me' sign on the trashcan grins a little too understandably.
Unconditional love still sets boundaries. We are all connected, but there is always room for distance and space between us within the infinite galaxy of love. Don't be afraid to walk away from something if coming too close to it causes you pain. Even the earth must revolve millions of miles away from the sun in order to thrive. Any further apart, and we would wither without its light. But any closer, and we would burn. When we exchange energy with one another, we seek balance. However, in doing so we must remember to strive only to regulate ourselves, and not each other. Love is the greatest force on earth, but it never forces. Instead, like water and air, it flows to where it's needed, into open hearts and open wounds. But as much as it will fiercely fight to move mountains for its beloved, love knows when to sit in stillness and solitude; to allow what exists to simply exist, without seeking to change what is, into what it knows it could be. There is a wisdom to the universe that we cannot ever see, and all we can do with our fragile human lives is continue to move ourselves closer to light and love, and further from everything that might keep us from it. #love#light#consciousness#spirituality#relationships#growth#self awareness #awake#inspiration#writing#writersofinstagram#wisdom#wordsofwisdom#poetry#poetsofinstagram#poems#spilledink#theartofseeing
🎶 ....I’m feeling defeated ‘cause her silent treatments
Now I’m fiending for her sweetness. Granted she’s the nutrients to my fetus
and I’m the granite
to where her feet is...🎶
How valuable time becomes when there is a lack of it. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
