Isn’t connection and intimacy something we all truly want? Knowing you have someone that listens to you and you both just click. This is a poem for lovers, friends and anyone who has experienced an amazing connection or craves one. Happy Valentine’s Day to all.
Like a little lick at their brain, quick access.
Honest information, involuntary expressions
Knowing the thing that interests a person is like a gateway to pleasure,their pleasure
It’s where you really meet them
They put on a little show for us and sometimes we miss it
They say here, right here,
that’s how to make me smile
But you weren’t really listening.
Sometimes your gift is the first thing they take their eyes off,
because it didn’t really speak to them
Those gifts that make you feel abit naked “How on earth did you know I would want that?”
That’s truly what they want.
That feeling of appreciation.
I hear you
I see you
People go about life with a stereotypical formula on how to please.
You should be willing to dive, to swim to the deep end and take what you want
You should listen
Listen to the waves, the intensity,
to the times when there’s a deluge of information,
and to the times when the waters are still
You could push a little and see the water troubled
People are the most beautiful when they laugh or smile carelessly
No warning, no preamble
It will hit you.
blessing your day
Sometimes truly connecting with a person does more for you than it does for them
