Remembering the Romance

Posted on Jan 8, 2013 by in Legacy | 1 comment

A look,
a touch,
a kiss,
where has the romance gone?
Why do I let myself
think that the fairytale has to end?
Why can’t an even greater love grow?

Jesus longs to show His love,
just as a husband does.
Yet I push away the feeling
of wanting to be swept away.

A longing to be held
and cared for so deeply.
To relax into the arms of my lover.

To let go of the anger
and destroy the wall
I have spent so long to build.
It would seem unnatural,
yet right at the same time.

Opening up is a battle within me.
Fighting myself until the end.
A tug of war to a freedom
of loving myself,
allowing another to love me
and being at ease with the consequences.

Never fully giving in
to the person I am,
striving to run away.
Always on the run,
but from what?
my love,
or myself?
Never staying still long enough
to please anyone,
not even myself.

  1. Hon,

    A very beautiful reflection. I think you need to take the time to look at yourself. I don't feel like you are running from me or God, as much as you are running from accepting certain parts of yourself, which causes you to continue to hide behind the walls you have built up over time.

    You have my full love and support as you work through these things.
