Soulmate

Ah, to find my soulmate

That one person in the universe

A guarantee of forever bliss

In a world otherwise bleak and tragic

Why wouldn’t I want to find my soulmate?

And spare myself the heartbreak and grief

Misery and sadness

That is sure to accompany me for not finding mine

If only

If only the very idea of a soulmate were possible……..

But, alas, it is not

It does not exist

And if it did, most would obliterate this supposed greatest gift

Perhaps, after all, one’s greatest gift is that there are no soulmates

Rather, abundant chances for real love

True love

My girl and I are not soulmates

Far from it

Our story resides far, far away from Hollywood

But you see, the very idea of a soulmate and Hollywood are made for each other

They’re fairytales, fictional

What we have is far more real

The longing to connect and love

Regardless of our circumstances

It doesn’t matter what tomorrow holds

Or next week, next year

We share a burning desire to learn how to love each other

Every single day

That feeling is authentic

Powerful and unmistakable

It is a fire in our bellies that a soulmate cannot provide

It’s exactly what I’m after

Hollywood can have its “happily ever after”

I want this

Love Need Not Be Certain

Certainty

Assurance

A sure thing

Traits that are sought out

Welcome

Desired

When it comes to love

Who doesn’t enjoy the occasional slam dunk?

But that’s all it is

Occasional

A rare commodity

Hardly prevalent in the real world

Outside of Hollywood

Certainty

To the contrary, I’ll live with the unknown

Not knowing how it plays out

Because to me, that’s what’s damn exciting!

One thing I’m certain of

Is that I love her touch

The way her sweet head fits when she leans into me

How she calls me “baby”

How she trusts me with intimate details about her life

No matter how unfortunate

How time spent with her goes so fast, I’m left longing for the next time

And the time after that

How she’s the first thing I think of in the morning

And the last in the evening

In hopes of a most wonderful dream

About her

I haven’t the first idea how this goes

The endgame is quite unknown

And I couldn’t care less

For I love her dearly

That’s for certain

And that’s more than enough for me

Flamingos

You

Me

Front Seat

You lean

Into me

The dark of night is comforting

We overlook the valley

Like the Hollywood sign

The bustle below is dead silent

The visual akin to millions of lightning bugs

Floating about

The Flamingos on the airwaves

“My love must be a kind of blind love”

“I can’t see anyone but you”

Our arms secure and comfort us

Yours to me

Mine to you

They say actions speak louder than words

Tonight we’ve uttered no words

And said a lot

The Flamingos-I Only Have Eyes For You

Time

It was over

Despite a good run

My heart no longer fluttered

Not in her direction, anyway

My affection led me astray

Into the arms of a new beloved

Demanded my burning attention

It was the right path

At that time

Ah, time

The undefeated and unbeatable arch nemisis

Time always proves to be correct

It points out that fluttering hearts change over time

Or that we neglect the warning signs at that moment of clear decision

Signs that may not be seen for years

But they will emerge

And once again, time will point its accusatory finger at you

Taunting

Flaunting its perfect record

And you’ll be left picking up the pieces

Until next time

Emotional Affair

https://www.foundationscounselingllc.com/blog/signs-of-emotional-affair.php

An immoveable headspace

Locked in the knowledge that

The absolute path

Is to her arms

Time is of the essence

If I don’t act now I lose her forever

I couldn’t bear it

Can’t you see?

She will make me happy

I feel it

I know it

You cannot convince me otherwise…….

It started so naturally

Just friends

Good friends

Laughs, little notes

Personal details

Innocent…….

Confusion

Why does she invade my inner space?

There’s a time and place for her

Not now…….

Time only intensified the fire in my heart

Her absence created a powerful longing

One in which I would be unable to break free

I have never felt this way before

This is true love
