“You must be you to the focus, to the heart, to your nucleus. You must be you – be real, be authentic, be verifiable and be actual. You must be you – be honest be ethical, be truthful and virtuous.”
You have to let them inside
throw down your shield.
They are a trojan horse
you know what their inside yields.
Know whats inside
This person might actually know you
better than you do.
Know you more than you do.
Comprehend that when they tear you down
its only to build you up.
shadow with impulse.
Butterflies you catch on stage
be able to let go.
Trusting they will and can staple
be able to help with stitching… Sew.
You must be fresh
always revolving; rotating.
Keep it new and exciting
just like when your just dating.
Help fuel dreams & complete aspirations.
Stand the test of time, give praise even when
there is no need for elation.
You have to be a friend
never let them pretend.
When they hurt; you hurt
but always have your strength to lend.
Know that you are their circles end.
No matter the upset, disappointment or regret
you will be there in all elements.
That your love for them will never rest
just like striving to always be the best…

This is inspired by the post above. The post just spoke volumes to me. This is what came out of those emotions.
I once was down,
but now i`m up again.
Deciding to make it worthwhile til the end,
I see no walls ahead in my mind.
Some force put them there to stop me,
i`ll push them down next time.
Instead of climbing and struggling,
over what it wants to hinder and hold me back.
I`m here now,
as a person prepared; ready to attack.
So what I was down?
Now i`m up again!
Walking my own path,
not guided by family nor friend.
I`m no longer on the ground,
I received a message not to give up.
So I tell anyone
when your down…

I think this one is simple enough to speak for itself.
As you lead
as I lead
combined with the upheaval
as the falling of leaves
in this moment
we take a moment
to turn like autumn season
needs no reason
in the instant
we just share
evenly work at release
we search for the sensation
then attempt to hold
hit it with a zealous repeat
so we can curl toes
and lose never endings
like cut, paste and delete

Daydreaming and watching memories play over and over again.
This year has gone by so quickly;
and time seems to be not enough whenever you’re with me,
I’m looking at the picture of me and you,
smiling at the thought of me and you.
Singing “Thank God I Found You”;
I really don’t know how and what I would do without you,
Can’t wait till I get to see you;
how I’ve missed you.
Knowing that “I Belong To You” keeps me oh so… optimistic!!
I count the moments until “At Last” you’re here with me
I suppose this is what love is or could be…
This cloud nine feeling you’ve given me.
It can only be “Real Love”.
That makes it seem so “Unbreakable”;
that makes this seem so capable,
Scrolling these words and photos of you;
yes my heart does grow fonder when ”I Can’t Get Next To You”.
This instrument has become our life line,
our land line …
My reach you anytime; so I purposely keep it near,
And purposely hold it dear,
here, by my heart.
Even though most of the time is time apart;
all of our time is time well spent
Loving our togetherness!
These pictures, like stolen memories, take me back to those times.
Looking through my phone
is like living in those times, pictures, messages, songs
keep me and you intertwined;
You really got a hold on me.

Continuing with sharing from the DP project. So many relationships nowadays rely on our handheld technology. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the same town, long distance, across the oceans. Its been the death and success to so many relationships. This of course is the positive side.
As part of the prompt we incorporated song titles into the writing!
In the words of Ms. Erykah Badu, “I’m an artist, and I'm sensitive about my shit.” So be gentle; honest, but gentle.
