No one truly knows who they are, he sighs. The glass bottle does not know its own contents. It has no idea whether it is a vessel for the most delicious apple cider, a lovingly crafted wine, or a bitter poison. People are the same. Yet like the bottle, we are transparent. We can’t see ourselves the way others see us.

How do you see me? she asked.

You are a bottle floating out at sea, he says. One that contains a very important message. It may never reach its recipient, but as long as there is someone waiting, it will always have purpose.Will you wait for mine?I will, he promised. I will look for you every time I stand at the edge of the ocean.

– “To Myself, Ten Years Ago”

- To Myself, Ten Years Ago -
You won’t believe what I see from this vantage point, the years stretching out before you like a long and winding road. I don’t want to scare you, but there is a forest just up ahead. One so dense and dark, the sunlight won’t reach you for a while. You will wander lost, in this long, perilous night, not knowing if it will ever come to an end. But believe me, the light will find you again, and when it does, you will no longer be afraid of the dark.
Stop to catch your breath. Soon, a jagged mountain of ice will rise before you, so steep it will make you want to turn back around. Don’t despair; the first foothold is always the most difficult and every inch you claim of that cold, hard precipice will only make you stronger. Before you know it, the ground will level out beneath you, and you will look back to see you had conquered what you once thought impossible.
See that turn just up ahead?? That’s the place where love will meet you, with arms so warm it will melt away the winter in an instant. And then, it will be summer for a very long time.

– “Souls”

- Souls -
When two souls fall in love, there is nothing else but the yearning to be close to the other. The presence that is felt through a hand held, a voice heard, or a smile seen.
Souls do not have calendars or clocks, nor do they understand the notion of time or distance. They only know it feels right to be with one another.
This is the reason why you miss someone so much when they are not there – even if they are only in the very next room. Your soul only feels their absence – it doesn’t realize the separation is temporary.
—————————————————————————-
Can I ask you something?
Anything.
Why is it every time we say goodnight, it feels like goodbye??

– “Someone Like You”

- Someone Like You -
Do you think there is the possibility of you and I?? In this lifetime, is that too much to hope for?? There is something so delicate about this time, so fragile. And if nothing ever comes of it, at least I have known this feeling, this wonderful sense of optimism. It is something I can always keep close to me – to draw from in my darkest hour like a ray of unspent sunshine. No matter what happens next, I will always be glad to know there is someone like you in the world.

– “Her Time”

- Her Time -
She has been feeling it for awhile now – that sense of awakening. There is a gentle rage simmering inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to her – she will nurture it and let it grow. She won’t let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very core – this is her time. She will not only climb mountains – she will move them too.

– “In The End”

- In The End -
I was ready to give it all up – everything. I was half out of my mind with love. And I didn’t think twice about what I was throwing into the fire, as long as I could keep it burning for just another minute – if only I was allowed to sit awhile longer beside its pale glow.
That was how I loved you in the end. With my body cold and shuddering. With empty hands over smoldering ash, counting out the minutes.

– “September Love”

- September Love -
How many years must we put between us to prove we are no longer in love?? How many summers and Septembers, distractions and chance meetings, remnants of our sad, hopeful love in another’s look, an all too familiar gesture – how long do we go on dragging our aching bodies day after day through this yawning, yearning world, searching for a glimpse of what could have been??
Tell me there has been someone else like me, for you. That your experience of love has not been defined by the way I spoke your name into the hollow of your neck. Ask me if I have found the same kind of reverence anywhere else but in your slow, patient hands, your sea-salt lips spilling laughter mid-sentence, my heart rising in a crescendo like a wave ready to crash.
As you whispered to me, love is the only thing that time cannot touch.
After all this time, my love fo you burns constant and true, my guiding light, my morning star. Time is testament to the relentless, unyielding power of this old, ancient love. A love I will carry from eons to oceans to inches, back to you.

– “Twin Flames”

- Twin Flames -
There was a feeling of inevitability when I met you. The sense that we would be together; that there would be a moment when you would look at me in a certain way, and we would cross the threshold from friendship into something so much more.
We spoke once about lovers who kept finding each other, no matter how many times the world came between them. And I think I had to break your heart, and you had to break mine. How else could we know the worth of what we were given??
I think you were always meant to know me a little better than anyone else. And our lives were fated to converge like some comic dance. I know there is a terrible distance between us. But our bodies are made of celestial light, and we are hurtling through space and time, towards the most beautiful collision.

– “The One”

- The One -
I don’t want you to love me because I’m good for you, because I say and do all the right things. Because I am everything you have been looking for.
I want to be the one you didn’t see coming. The one who gets under your skin. Who makes you unsteady. Who makes you question everything you have ever believed about love. I want to be the one who makes you feel reckless and out of control; the one you are infuriatingly and inexplicably drawn to.
I don’t want to be the one who tucks you into bed; I want to be the reason why you can’t sleep at night.

- Her -
There is so much history in the way he looks at her. In the way he says her name. When they are together, there is a current that runs between them; like an electric charge on the verge of erupting into a perfect storm.
I don’t love her anymore, he says.
And it is the way he says the word, her – that tells me otherwise.

More Than Love


Love was cruel,

as I stood proud;

he showed me you

and I was bowed.


He deftly dealt

his swiftest blow—

I fell further than,

I was meant to go.


And he ashamed,

of what he’d caused,

knew from then,

that I was yours.


That he, an echo

and you, the sound—

I loved you more

than love allowed.
