Third-Degree Burns

19 Jul

Light Up the Fire

I gaze into the heart, lowly it may be,
Thought the words be higher still.
For the heart is all the substance,
The speech an accident.
How many phrases will you speak,
Too many for me.
How much burning, burning will you feel,
Be friendly with the fire, enough for me.
Light up the fire of love inside,
And blaze the thoughts away.

-Rumi

 

I was looking for a poem on solitude, on how it serves as a companion (aka together with a bunch of good/bad/mixed thoughts), and I stumbled upon fire yet again.

Fireflies, twin flames, fascinations and code names… last 3 involved fire.

Currently, suffering but surviving third-degree burns.

Being

18 Jul

I have come to the frightening conclusion…
That I am the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration,
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides
whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated,
and a person is humanized or de-humanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be,
we help them become
what they are capable of becoming.
J.W.Goethe

 

“Me With You”

3 Dec

“Me with You” is a story by Kristy Dempsey and Christopher Denise about a grandparent and a grandchild, but applicable with a life partner too. :> Read along and hopefully, this story will make you feel warm and good like what I felt when reading it. 🙂

me with you

We’re a pair beyond compare
A rare and special two
In all the ways that I am me
And you’re completely you.

When I am me, I’m swinging
Over puddles from a rope
And you stand ready with a sponge
And bucket full of soap

I’m me when I am sick in bed
All feverish with flu
So you stay close to care for me
And watch the whole night through

I’m me on an adventure
Digging treasure from the sand
And when the path is rocky
You are there to hold my hand

Whenever I am not so nice
And selfish with my stuff
You’re the one who loves me
And forgives me if I’m gruff

If I decide to run away
Then you come running too
To talk to me into going back
Before the day is through

On days when being me feels like
The sky was painted black
You and I together roll
Along a brighter track

And though I’ll find new ways
Of being me my whole life through
My favorite me will always be
When I am me with you.

p.s. I hope to find a copy of this book in Book Sale haha #dearUniverse

Self Talk

23 Sep

And she’s out again?

Yup, and it’s so hard.

Why do you even care?

Because I love her.

Even if you know it’s out of delusion and not reciprocity?

You love because you feel, not because you expect something in return.

It’s not familial. It’s not platonic. It’s something romantic, it can’t go one-way forever.

What if I can?

Oh yes you can. But will you be happy?

Yes, I will be.. eventually, because one day she will come around.

And you believe that?

That’s the only hope I have.

For what?

…To get me going.

Oh, God bless you.

Dear God, I’ll be okay. But do bless her for me.

We are Super!

9 Sep
We all have our kryptonite.
They say you are mine.
But I say it’s the contrary.
 
They say you’re my kryptonite,
making me weak,
draining my power,
stripping me off my defenses,
and making me lose logic, reason and everything else.
 
But I know and feel otherwise.
And you do too.
 
You are my strength, the way I am yours.
 
We are each other’s push and pull.
We are each other’s gravity and pixie dust.
We are each other’s superhero, with sparkles.
 
Come.
Stay closer.
The only time I’d willingly be weak is under your love. 

She Makes Me Super!

9 Sep

They say you are my kryptonite,

making me weak,

draining my power.

I feel otherwise.

You are my strength.

Stay closer.
