Have you ever noticed the way small children hold onto a kitten or puppy that they love? They wrap the little guy firmly in their arms. They hug and squeeze and hold tightly onto the object of their passion. Unfortunately, an intervention, of sorts is usually required to save the life of the almost loved-to-death animal. In all of their exuberance, small children tend to (almost) squeeze the life out of the very thing they love so much. I am practically there, dear Readers, squeezing the life out of very thing I love so much.
… telling myself I’m gonna be alright
Without you baby is a waste of time
It is a waste of time, dear Readers to try and convince my heart that we will survive without him by our side. It seems that I have an addictive personality and the more in love I fall, the more in love I fall.
You can’t undo a fall like this
‘Cause love don’t know what distance is
Yeah, I know it’s crazy
I fell in love and I fell hard. The distance between us has only served to reinforce my love, yeah, I know it’s crazy. But whether it’s 7 miles or 7,000 miles, love is love and the heart wants what the heart wants.
But I don’t want “good” and I don’t want “good enough”
I want “can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love”
I don’t and I can’t. Nothing average about me, so why would I settle? I wouldn’t. There’s nothing like that can’t catch my breath kind of love.
Who cares if you’re all I think about,
I’ve searched the world and I know now,
It ain’t right if you ain’t lost your mind
Yes, he is all I think about. And yes, I have lost my mind. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
…I don’t want easy, I want crazy
I am crazy in love.
I wanna be scared, don’t wanna know why
Wanna feel good, don’t have to be right
This is the kind of love I want, dear Readers. I don’t want to be right, I want to be in love.
There’s no such thing as wild enough,
And maybe we just think too much
Who needs to play it safe in love?
Let’s be crazy!
The greater the risk, the greater the payout. Go big or go home. The brightest stars burn the hottest. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I could go on dear Readers, but you get the picture.
“Dear Lord, do You think I could fall in love one more time before I die?” Enter ESS and my prayers were answered.
Excitement, I mean real excitement, curl your toes, stop your breath, leave your heart in your throat excitement is what I’ve got. And I will not let it slip silently away. I am in love. There is no greater excitement. Peace, ~v.
