Love ?


If you just want to love me from a distance

To keep your heart safe

What does that say of love

Is it not an open conduit that flows

Do I choose to love you

Or am I impelled?

The feeling of love that I have

Is it conditional upon the receipt

Only of the safe and good

What happens when trouble and strife come

And I feel that everything I long to feel and touch and give

Seems so very far from my control

Then what happens to love?

Shakespeare said

Love is not love which alters when it alterations finds

Or bends with the remover to remove

That looks on tempests and is never shaken

So when I feel this tempest rage

Where does my love go

And what does my response say of my love?

That I keep a heart open to love

Even in the midst of hell fire

Surely that commitment to love

Takes the strongest heart and mind

One’s heart opens to being pierced to bleed

And with the bleeding know

What it truely means to love

Another soul both one with mine

And separate to my own

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
