i think it is exceedingly rare these days that we take the time to truly get to know how someone wants to be loved; how they prefer to be treated, acknowledged, let alone or kept company; how they would be heard, understood, and validated; how they want to be touched and embraced, or how they’ll be open to it when they feel safe….
i let you go once
a test to be sure
after years of being curious
in the quiet corner of our hearts we come to remember our voice where it is heard without a sound find comfort in me for the answer will always be you are safe here you are known you are cradled you are home
say something real.
speak from your authentic space.
bypass that polite, carefully constructed, dancing-around-the-point, maybe-they’ll-infer-what-i-mean bullshit….
transcend the noise and the cliché, and you have a chance at the impossible.
