I don’t think anything can calm me as much as writing does. Be it a blog post, poem or even a post-it reminder – I love to see my thoughts on paper. With that said, feel free to share your thoughts on this poem I just wrote (which is why it is yet to be titled hence the title of this post) and the pic below which was taken from a suite in a lovely hotel called The Crane in the south of Barbados.
You know that feeling deep down inside,
A numbing pain you cannot hide.
A hurt so great you cannot think,
Speechless and unmoved with every blink.
The love is thick.
The love is pure.
The love remains even when sore.
The love heals while it mends,
It’s the only cure on which one can depend.
The love hurts sometimes right to the core,
The love forgives and comes back for more.
Say what you will it won’t count
The love endures for those who have no doubts.
Let go of the pain and let love in,
Share, but the love is more about giving.
It is for those who have no boundaries,
Or set limitations on it’s varying degrees.
It is blind and leads with faith
It waits for all to find the way.
I can tell you now that for the next 5 weeks you probably won’t hear from me much. I may post a picture or two and blog about once or twice. I never imagined that September would be as busy as it’s looking! We are having an impromptu visit from my sister-in-law, my parents arrive on our wedding anniversary and stay for almost two weeks then we go home for a wedding *phew*! I just booked a spa day for us to celebrate our anniversary so I can have a few hours of bonding/relaxing time with my husband in between the craziness.
For once, I’m not stressed (surprise!). I’ve been occupying myself with getting rid of boxes in my apartment and I think when that is done then I may stress about everything but I can truly say I’m in a place right now where, I can’t wait to see those who are coming and to enjoy their company. Everything will work out. I’ve also been shopping up a storm.. I don’t know if that means I’m redirecting subconscious stress or if I’m just being naughty lol.
I feel like I’ve been neglecting my blog, but I’ve been so occupied with other things that finding the time to blog has been pretty hard. Late nights and early mornings haven’t been very nice but I don’t think I should ever be complaining about how much I have going on when at one point I didn’t have much going on. Life is great, I have no complaints whatsoever. I guess the following quotes somewhat describe where I am, and I will continue to work on being happy and living life to the fullest.
