Re-learning to Love

Filed under: Emotional Stuffs, General Stuff — Tags: , , — slimpickins @ 1:22 pm

Re-learning to Love – 12/29/2015

I feel you with me, wherever I go.

You are beside me, reminding me to live my life.

I feel your lips upon my lips.

I taste you for hours after we have kissed.

I fall into your arms and breathe in your scent.

My skin tingles, where you have caressed it.

My breathing becomes deeper, so that I can get closer to you and take more of you inside.

The passion I feel for you ignites a fire with each kiss.

My heart aches when you block me from your life.

My brain tries to fool me into deceptions, but I only need to look deep into your eyes to see the lies.

I run as fast as I can into those lies hoping to slay them before they can reach too deep and wreak too much havoc.

I know the lies have done some damage, but I am quick to try to repair it. Hoping and praying that no lasting damage has been done to us.

I could stare into your loving eyes for hours and never tire.

I stare at your face to memorize the lines, so that I can conjure you in my dreams.

I want everything and nothing at all. I only want you.

I desire you, I need you, I yearn for you to be close, so I can cherish you.

My greatest fear is that after having you, I would lose you forever.

Now that I have had you in my life, I do not want to go on without you.

You make me want to be a better person.

You make me want to run head long into the future with you; without a plan only a dream.

I will fight for you.

I will fight for me.

I will fight for us.

You have me, as much of me as I can give you.

Re-learning to open my broken heart and put the pieces back together.

Re-learning passion, which I thought had long ago been distinguished.

Re-learning carnal desires, which I was sure I would never experience again.

I give more of myself to you every day as I fall deeper and deeper.

I had no idea that I could get this lost in someone, again.

This is so new to me, I am learning from you, re-learning to love.

Searching…

Filed under: General Stuff — Tags: , — slimpickins @ 12:52 pm

I do not search for love, for I am already loved.

I do not search for lust, for lust can be deceiving.

I do not search for sex, for sex is easy to find.

I do not search for completion, for I am already complete.

 

I search for humor, as I crave laughter.

I search for fun, as I like to smile and enjoy life.

I search for intelligence, as deep conversation is food for the soul.

I search for creativity, as art is necessary in life.

I search for a companion, as I want to share life experiences.

I search for a good heart, as helping others is a necessity.

I search for a soul mate, as I am ready to bind my soul for eternity.

Relationship Rules… (for everyone)

Filed under: General Stuff — Tags: , , , , , — slimpickins @ 8:27 am

Why must we always have man’s rules and women’s rules? Here are some relationship rules:

PLEASE NOTE. THESE ARE ALL NUMBERED #1 ON PURPOSE!

1. PEOPLE ARE NOT MIND READERS.
1. INTIMACY IS IMPORTANT. YOU DON’T NEED SEX FOR INTIMACY, BUT IT IS NICE.
1. LEARN TO WORK THE TOILET SEAT. YOU’RE A BIG PERSON. IF IT’S UP, PUT IT DOWN.
1. CRYING IS BLACKMAIL.
1. SAYING WHAT YOU THINK I WANT TO HEAR ONLY CAUSES MORE ISSUES, JUST BE HONEST.
1. YOU KNOW THAT PERSON YOU WHERE WHEN WE STARTED DATING AND ALL THOSE THINGS YOU DID FOR ME? DON’T STOP BEING THAT PERSON OR DOING THOSE THINGS DURING THE RELATIONSHIP. WE STARTED DATING YOU FOR A REASON, NOT FOR YOU TO GIVE UP ONCE WE WERE TOGETHER.
1. IF YOU ARE DONE WITH ME OR THE RELATIONSHIP, THEN LEAVE. WE WOULD RATHER HEAR THE TRUTH THAN BE CHEATED ON.
1. ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT. LET US BE CLEAR ON THIS ONE:
SUBTLE HINTS DO NOT WORK!
STRONG HINTS DO NOT WORK!
OBVIOUS HINTS DO NOT WORK!
JUST SAY IT!
1. YES AND NO ARE PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE ANSWERS TO ALMOST EVERY QUESTION.
1.. COME TO US WITH A PROBLEM ONLY IF YOU WANT HELP SOLVING IT.
1. ANYTHING WE SAID 6 MONTHS AGO IS INADMISSIBLE IN AN ARGUMENT. IN FACT, ALL COMMENTS BECOME NULL AND VOID AFTER 7 DAYS.
1. IF YOU THINK YOU’RE FAT, YOU PROBABLY ARE. DON’T ASK US.
1. IF SOMETHING WE SAID CAN BE INTERPRETED TWO WAYS AND ONE OF THE WAYS MAKES YOU SAD OR ANGRY, WE MEANT THE OTHER ONE.
1. YOU CAN EITHER ASK US TO DO SOMETHING OR TELL US HOW YOU WANT IT DONE. NOT BOTH.
IF YOU ALREADY KNOW BEST HOW TO DO IT, JUST DO IT YOURSELF.
1. WHENEVER POSSIBLE, PLEASE SAY WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO SAY DURING COMMERCIALS.
1. CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS DID NOT NEED DIRECTIONS AND NEITHER DO WE…
1. IF YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO HEAR ME SAY IT TO YOU, THEN DON’T SAY IT TO ME.
1. DON’T USE SEX AS A WEAPON, WITHHOLDING SEX DOES NOT FIX ANYTHING BUT CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS.
1. TOO MUCH SEX AND NO SEX ARE BOTH ISSUES, FIGURE OUT WHERE IN THE MIDDLE YOU BOTH FIT.
1. IF WE ASK WHAT IS WRONG AND YOU SAY ‘NOTHING,’ WE WILL ACT LIKE NOTHING’S WRONG. WE KNOW YOU ARE LYING, BUT IT IS JUST NOT WORTH THE HASSLE.
1. IF YOU ASK A QUESTION YOU DON’T WANT AN ANSWER TO, EXPECT AN ANSWER YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR..
1. WHEN WE HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE, ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WEAR IS FINE…REALLY.
1.. DON’T ASK US WHAT WE’RE THINKING ABOUT BECAUSE IT WON’T BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO HEAR ANYWAY.
1. YOU HAVE ENOUGH CLOTHES, TOOLS, CARS, MOTORCYCLES, SHOES, ETC.
1. I AM IN SHAPE. ROUND IS A SHAPE!
1.. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS. YES, I KNOW, I HAVE TO SLEEP ON THE COUCH TONIGHT.. BUT WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
1. COMPROMISE, COMPROMISE, COMPROMISE… DO THINGS THE OTHER PERSON LIKES EVEN IF YOU DON’T JUST TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH THE OTHER PERSON.
1. COMMUNICATION IS KEY, TALK ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON.

My work succulent plant

Filed under: General Stuff — slimpickins @ 5:33 pm

This is my work plant. I know that it is a Succulent. and I am sure it is a Echeveria of some type. I have heard maybe a multicaulis, but I am not sure.  It grows off this big stalk and the little branches are sooo cool. Does anyone have any idea what type of plant this really is?

Love is…

Filed under: General Stuff — Tags: — slimpickins @ 11:24 am

Love is not something you say, it is something you live. Love is making a decision that is difficult and painful for you because it is better for the one you love. Love is trusting someone when others, or yourself, or logic or whatever insists otherwise.

Whirlwind

Filed under: General Stuff — slimpickins @ 6:09 pm

I cry and I cry inside,

I dare not share the reason why.

Would you understand?

Would it break your heart to know what caused me pain?

 

Demons from my past,

Arise on memories long ago locked away.

Startled by this rush of emotions,

I was sure they were gone forever.

 

Unknowingly you harmed me,

This was not your purpose, I know.

For now I am caught in a whirlwind of emotions,

Between my mind and heart.

 

Dealing again with feelings,

They have nothing to do with everything.

I can feel the walls being erected again,

I must hide, at least for now.
