I was lonely and desolate; all alone in this home of ours called Mother Earth when love came my way.
“No!!!” I told love, “I’m ok being miserable and lonely, I don’t need you”
But love wouldn’t budge. It held me tightly and clutched at my hand like a child would clutch its mother.
“Don’t let go” love said “I want to show you something”. I agreed but not without worry tugging my heart; I took little steps at first, not sure if I would fall, but love guided my steps and showed me awe. It was too good to be true; love filled my days with splendid laughter and set my heart to flight.
It showed me waking up to a beautiful smile and a warm hug. I laughed more frequently, my mouth was never closed.
“This is too much” I said.
“I can’t take it anymore.”
But I opened up my mouth and swallowed its beautiful air and inhaled that delicacy of sweetness.
Then it happened;
“I’ve got to go” Love said and made to leave;
“No!!” I cried out, “Don’t do this to me, I can’t go back to that dark and desolate life I had, this is much better.”
But love failed to listen to me that night and left. Love left me to cry myself to death. To begin once again to find my desolate home which I had deserted.
“I’m back.” Love said after weeks of loneliness, my heart leaped inside of me and I felt whole again, but love tricked me, it showed me this other side; one I had never seen.
“Who is this?” I asked.
“This is me.” Love said.
I sank to the ground in despair.
LOVED HAD TRICKED ME
Many of us have been tricked by love, have been left heart broken or bent; but from it all we rise to strength, to the knowledge of who we really are…..
