I love you today

What’s love? A few letters mashed together or is love a feeling?

What’s love if it’s not unconditional?

Why do you love? Is it because the person makes you happy, is it because they’ve got nice clothes, a sweet face, good job or do you love them because of how they make you feel or what they do for you? Is it really love or is it lust, better yet who even understands love? Does love even make any sense? Doesn’t falling in love mean you can eventually fall out of it?

These are the questions so many think about but are afraid to ask.

I believe to love a person is to love them for being the imperfect being they are, it’s loving them despite their flaws. It’s loving their energy, their essence, it’s the air that surrounds them. It’s not these temporary superficial things that will eventually fade.. it’s loving that persons true self.

People get into relationships and refer to the beginning as the honeymoon period, the period where it’s bliss straight sailing. True natures hidden we grow to love a false representations of that person, or a half self where only the best traits are shown. Six months later the relationship is on the rocks because your true selves begin to come out and that’s not what you both signed up to right. You fell for the mask.

This is why it’s so important to be yourself from the beginning. I’ll show you my bipolar personality, I’ll tell you exactly what you’re getting yourself into. I’ll share my past with you, I will never pretend to be perfect or try to present myself as someone who hasn’t made any mistakes. Doing this takes some level of personal awareness, because no one knows your flaws better than you.

We’re living in a time where it’s so important to own our bs. If we want to be loved for who we are, we must embrace our true selves. Less relationships would fizzle out if everyone was able to do this.

Don’t allow someone to fall in love with the idea of you, let them fall for the real you because once they realise that the idea they have cultivated in their head doesn’t match up to reality, they will easily fall back out of this so called love they was in.

The moral of the story.. be yourself and you can’t go wrong.

So what is love? There is no one true complete answer. The real question is what is love to you? That’s all that matters.

The Seasons Always Change

In your feelings impulsive words regrettable actions 
Sanctions placed impractical solutions
Resolutions, empty words truth dilution 
Revolving doors mental preparation  
Emotional penetration mind games going round in circles 
He’s Jumping hurdles going through the motions
She’s treading egg shells siping potions
Both considering options both looking for problems
Picking fights looking for reasons 
Spitting venom faces change like the seasons
But rhe seasons will always change
Summer skies to autumn leaves 
Chapters close fresh starts new days
No dark can cloud the light you just have to believe

Damage Control

Our yes’s mean no and our no’s mean yes
We do the opposite of what we truly want damage control in full effect 
We feel the effects so what damage are we really controlling 
Testing our limits matters of the heart manipulating 
Pulling strings cutting cords 
But there’s no way to cut the invisible cords 
This is the one pulling souls together from far corners of the earth 
Can you cut this cord? I’m not sure for what it’s worth

Lost In Translation

Mind games why do we play them.
When did life become so complicated where no one speaks the truth, no one says what’s really on their mind, so afraid of the response.

Instead we engage in strategic games of mind chess always considering our next 5 steps. Rarely in the moment we live our present with two hands on the future one foot in the past, hardly taking a moment to relax and actually truly laugh. 

When did life become so complicated, yesteryears childhood freedom a distant memory, now we struggle not to live with constant dread an worry. 

Who remembers when yes ment yes and no ment no, how many wasted hours have we lost trying to translate such simple words into a language we can understand.  

Struggling to comprehend words we look to seek knowledge through body language, X’s and O’s. Struggling to understand messages in this new digital age where everything is emojis and emoticons.

People communicate through statuses, pictures, quotes, gifs so much indirecting but rarely eye to eye speaking.

The simplest of messages are misconstrued, the simplest messages are lost in translation.
In a time where everyone is so easily accessible one of the biggest problems for our generation is miscommunication. 

Constantly miscommunicating.

Communication Problems

Impulsive unthought actions 
Explosive irrational reactions
We act unprepared to face the consequences of our decisions
Plagued by confusion misunderstandings and indecisions

Do we listen to the mind or heart
Do we listen to the feelings that last
That niggling feeling deep inside 
That voice we hear we try to hide 
Or do we just act from the depths of our raw emotions 
Resulting in act now think later situations 


No, we should think before we speak 
We can’t let the moments heat take control and run wild with a situation
We’d avoid so many issues if we worked on our communication
..Then take action
