The feeling of love


When I open my eyes, I see darkness, when I close my eyes,I see light.

But when I look at you , I see this beautiful smile that makes me smile back at you too.

I zoom in to the good, while the bad habits run through the mud , All I need is to feel loved.

The questions, the lies running through my mind , think to myself “get in line”. 

My mind is ticking , my eyes are flickering , I can’t stop picking , I can’t stop kicking!

If this is how love feels then I don’t want it, don’t need it and can be without it .

    The excitement and the flutters that visited you is very likely authentic as your words jumped w truth about that initial tingle. So you have your part rehearsed and when and if matched w a validity of intention and feeling the unity resulting would excite. The flaw lies with him and there’s not always a method to identify partners that have half hearted approach. I feel ann optimism after the read cuz you stood up w honor and blessed emotion and I salute you for that. I leave you w simple but true words
    “One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch” yiu are READY to flourish cuz you have the wonderment and splendor alive yiu just proved it. And I salute !!
