Sometimes Love Just Isn’t Enough

Sometimes Love Just Isn't Enough

Sometimes Love Just Isn’t Enough

Giving your heart and baring your soul
Can leave you open for heartbreak once more
It’s better to listen to the good advice
Some people do know better and are very very wise
If you do not heed warnings from within
You can open your life to strife once again
There are some among us which know nothing of love
Yet they play their role well, their mask fits like a glove
They rush in & share with you their hopes & their dreams
They are beautiful creatures, so at first this may seem
Yet this one is different, it’s all just their game
Searching for themselves what they might be able to gain
As if in a tornado, you are swept off your feet
Before you know it, you are in very deep
Your love is so real and you are amazed
How God brought you together during this life phase
The beautiful words flow so freely you will see
You are special like they are, two pure souls you and he (or she)
God is the center and will always be
One day soon you realize there is no “us” only “me”
Everything is so wonderful, life is so grand
Until you question, this near perfect plan
The edges begin to unravel, the pieces don’t quite fit
This puzzle is fuzzy but we cannot quit!
I will do anything to prove how I feel
Buy you things to show my love is real
Please don’t go I’m sorry for what was done
Even though I don’t know what it was, please don’t run
Don’t you dare question or I will tear you up and
Leave you wondering if your own thoughts are right
Taking each word and ripping them apart
You begin to see the devil within his own heart
Twisting and turning and stabbing your soul
This is their kind of love, their only real goal
They need, they want, they are victims of life
Before you know it, you’re buried beneath all their lies
They twist all your thoughts, play with your mind
They shut you out and love making you cry
You love and you give, you buy and you try
But for this type of person, you must strive to go higher
Then, just like that, everything is good again
You question your own sanity, while he sits there and grins
Holding you closely, sweet words are now spewed
Trying to sooth you and keep you confused
This is the game of this tortuous soul
Needing you so they can gain all control
Then just as quickly as it all began
They walk away leaving you torn all over again
This time it didn’t work, the devious plan
I let him keep walking, I stopped holding his hand
Life is not easy when you fall for this type
But one day you realize all they are full of is just hype
The healing from this kind of abuse you will find
Is long and painful and leaves you aching and confined
To the unending thoughts they swirl up in your brain
Everyday darkened as if the rain of tears will never end
The pain is deeper than your gut has ever felt
This type of torture my soul has never dealt
It hurts just to think, it hurts just to breathe
It hurts to realize they can walk away with such ease
As the time slowly passes and you accept what’s been done
You can begin to see why you were once advised to run
Run before you fall in love with this perfection
Of the narcissistic world and all their confection
When it’s too good to be true step back try to see
How exactly did you end up here with nothing but me
Take things slow and when things start to get rough
Remember these words

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research. Engaging in shopping activities, whether online or in person, can provide a psychological and emotional boost. Even just browsing can bring happiness, but it’s important to be mindful of your spending habits. Dr. Bea outlines various explanations for the phenomenon.

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
