To all the lovers I never kept:
Could I have that piece of myself back?
But, no, why don't you keep it? It's my way of traveling the world. Of leaving this Box I stay in.
For a moment I let you live there, too. But I'm claustrophobic and the walls started collapsing
So take that piece and GO!
The box is bigger now.
The tattered blanket I usually sleep with is only good some nights.
But mostly I'm just alone. Clinging to the rotting corners of a memory that's fraying & can't keep me warm.
I left you.
But now there's a space. A place where the part of me I gave to you is still bleeding.
It will clot.
And when the blood finally dries on my blanket, I'll find another little piece to give away.
But right now, there is only bleeding.
A part of me I don't get back.
A part of me I treasured.
A part of me I tried to fill with you but never quite got the size right.
You're still there. Where I should be.
Little pieces of my lovers...
A patch-work quilt of him & me & him & me & him... #poetry#patchwork#patchworkheart#heart#writersofinstagram#poetsofinstagram#poet#writing#lover#loveaffair#piecesofmyheart#quilt
Our route toward spiritual evolution is radiantly clear. We all have our own unique individual journey to walk toward enlightenment. Living on the brink of evolutionary change means that new ground is being broken and new consciousness is being raised. Truth is of the essence – we have no dogma, no set formula, no prescribed rules, no false standards to follow. All we have is the truth within our souls. I believe most of us want to follow the light, the path of healing and not destroying our earth, but we don't have the courage, the lion heart, to follow our individual truth toward enlightenment. Giving in to our fears, we bury our “gold” beneath the false value systems of our societies, and we attempt to comfort ourselves with the notion that we have no power or responsibility for what is happening to our world. The reality is that, potentially, we all have the power of light – the White Lion – within us. The very first step is to overcome our fears. Thereafter, our hearts will lead the way. #mostafasharkawialchemist#EyesOnYou#love#lover#passion#loveaffair#fallinginlove#beinginlove#loveyou#inspiration#iloveyou#loveyourself#beautiful#beyond#ecumenism#positivity#femdom#feminist#female#journey#glow#flow#learn#evolve#grow#idea
