Free Love (rough)

just watched love has no label agaom, but this time I had the itch to write about love as I always do…. and then I thought, “what if love was a currency”…?

If love was a currency why aren’t we using it like we use dollar bills at the stores of people’s hearts and souls?

why do we work so hard to earn it?

why do we wish and obsess for more of it?

what is the cost of love anyway?.. a kiss on the cheek, a hand held, the “magical” three words, a ring?

pick one and ask yourself why?

why is it that we have to earn love? why is it that we have this belief that we have to work for love… love was here before we were even thought of. Love isn’t a man made product or propaganda to keep us wanting more… it is an experience, an expression, an emotion..an uncontrolled physical response. It cannot be created, manufactured, adapted into, bought from a second hand store or even sold/traded in. Love is like the universe we are comfortably living in… it expands every second and we are alive because of it. It roams all around us and moves through us. Love is free; just like the air we breath….

What if we could give free love like the way we breathe out the air that we breathe in?

there’s more I could write about… but really tired right now.. until next time

Kiss on The Cheek

It’s been a while since I’ve had a real date outside of Tinder.. but I finally had one this week and it was surprisingly nice. we talked the whole time and he ended the night with a simple yet sweet peck on the cheek. With the over-sexualized society that we live in today.. it’s nice to just end things in a simple way.. like a peck on the cheek. Maybe it’s time to take it back  a little bit and and slow it down. Now that we don’t have the same restrictions that we did once… we shouldn’t overuse it. I feel like if we do, then we forget completely of we become desensitized to the more simple (but just as effective) forms of affection.

I don’t know why, but I respected him a lot more now because of that.

question to self…to be continued rough

love the life you live and live the life you love

but how can live if you don’t even know what love is. How can you love, if life is dependent on love itself…things that I think about after studying for hours on end and of course having a glass or two of beer. Still no answer though… always a question to ponder on, but no concrete answer ever made on my own.

If I fell

I wonder what kind of person I would be if I fell hard for someone

always keeping my options open always hiding what’s inside

always showing my true feelings for another through things other than word or emotion

I am a person easy to love but I find difficulty in showing my love

I wonder how I will survive if all I do is push away when I feel so close

instead of indulging in the moment of true happiness I refuse to let it in

with every word of love and kindness I recieve, the more I armour my heart of whats to come

I am never unprotected.

I am left to think of ifs in life because I refuse to let the opportunity in

I keep myself hidden and locked and never allow myself to see the beauty of falling

for so many years I have been this way and now, even if I long to accept a compliment

even if I accept to believe that hand is being held just because.. I can’t help think that there is more

more that this person wants than a hand held or a kiss on the forehead or a simple hug.

I have made myself into this cynic of a woman who cannot love one bit.

I have made myself to become a person that pushes away any good from people.

i wonder if I will ever fall for someone

i wonder if i will ever just fall

We’ve only got days to borrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
Love as you please but please don’t tease
The ones you love with pain

life is a second that will pass you if you’re not consciously living it.

We’ve only got days to borrow
Here today and gone tomorrow 
Might as well love now then wait till time runs out… not finished

Life is a second that will pass you by if you’re not consciously living.

What I learned about love

Cheesy Love Story (rough)

VERSE ONE
Heres a story of love
And of a troublesome heart
Here’s a story of a stubborn fool
With an apathetic point of view

Here’s a story of two souls
Who crossed paths only once in life
Who thought nothing of each other
till they learnt about love had one another

CHORUS
Oh what a cheesy love story
About a cynical and me
Though I tried to make myself believe
That there’s no way, no possibility
My heart refuses to stop beating

For this cheesy love story
About an old cynical and me
And though distance is there
And moments are rare
My heart refuses to stop loving him

VERSE TWO
Now time has passed them by
Months turning into years
These two lover never met again
But continued to speak

Though the distance took toll on them
And the talks grew so weak
These to lover endured and their weakness was cured
By their the gracious love for each other

CHORUS
Oh what a cheesy love story
About a cynical and me
Though i tried to make myself believe
That there’s no way, no possibility
My heart refuses to stop beating

For this cheesy love story
About an old cynical and me
And though distance is there
And moments are rare
My heart refuses to stop loving him

BRIDGE
Oh cheesy love don’t ever leave my side
Oh silly love of mine don’t stop hold me tight

Oh stubborn fool, know that I’m here for you
Oh cynical love of mine please keep a hopeful eye for the future

Oh love of my life please don’t ever think twice of what we have made for us of this silly love story

CHORUS
Oh what a cheesy love story
About a cynical and me
Though i tried to make myself believe
That there’s no way, no possibility
My heart refuses to stop beating

For this cheesy love story
About an old cynical and me
And though distance is there
And moments are rare
My heart refuses to stop loving him
