Keep Your Love

Without honesty love is unstable. Without trust love is lost. I will not compromise my respect for your love. You can keep your love; I will keep my respect. I know my high worth.

You are not a happy person if…

If it kills you that your ex is happier with another person than s/he ever was with you, chances are you are not a happy person. ~Just L (February 10, 2018, Goddess Wisdom reprinted from 2008)

Author’s Note: Start there. Learn to love yourself first. Bitter doesn’t get more beautiful with age. Self-loathing will destroy you (and your children’s/ future love’s) life. Ultimately, you are only punishing yourself.

“The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.” -William Penn

She Thought She Was Clever

She thought she was clever
Spending her life
Plotting his grief
She was never content
He found relief
Time marched on
Her heart a stone
Not understanding
Why she’s alone
She thought she was clever
Spending her life
Wishing his happiness cease
She clung to righteousness
He was at peace
Years passed by
Her bitterness grew
Why she didn’t have love
She never knew
She thought she was clever
Spending her life

E’er Wooing Me Back

I have so many lovers.
It is hard to keep track.
France, Italy, Mexico, Belize;
E’er wooing me back.

Some are as warm as the sun.
A few as cool as the sea breeze.
Others are marble statues.
More of a tease.

A buffet of delight.
They each have their taste.
Spicy as Indian cardamom.
Soft as Venetian lace.

I have so many lovers.
I will never lack.
Memories and wanderlust;
E’er wooing me back.

I thank God for you everyday

I will never really know why you were drawn to pursue me.

I mean beyond you saying I had positive energy.

I am not sure why we met except to challenge each other on everything we have learned about love, life, and time.

I am still attached to outcomes, and your “soon love” is not mine.

Perhaps I was simply again free enough to yearn.

Or perhaps now open to unlearn.

I may never know or master the way.

But I thank God for you everyday.

Author’s Note: I had said I was coming to Mexico to learn about myself, and to unlearn, too. 💕
