The Risk of Love
There is a risk involved in everything
Every time you share a smile
Every time you shed a tear
You are opening yourself up to hurt.

Some people tread slowly through life,
Avoiding the closeness risk brings,
Sidestepping the things they can not understand
Turning away from those who care too much-
Those who care stay too long,
Those who hold too tightly.

There is never an easy way to love
You cannot approach it cautiously
It will not wait for you to arm yourself.

It does not care if you turn away
It is everywhere, it is everything.
Love is the greatest of all risks.

It is not reliable, it is not cautious,
It is not sympathetic
It is unprejudiced and unmerciful.
It strikes the strongest of mind,
And brings them to their knees in one blow.

Even in the best of times, love hurts.
It hurts to need, it hurts to belong,
It hurts to be the other part of someone else,
Without either of your consent.

But, from the moment it overtakes you,
It hurts worse to be all alone.
The risk of love never depletes;
It grows stronger and more dangerous with time.
But, it is in the total surrender of all defense,
That we, no matter weak or strong,
No matter willing or captive,
No matter what, we truly experience love.

Despite the many things love is not,
Outweighing it all are the things that love is.
Love is surrender without a loss.
It is a gift without the cost.
It consumes your every thought and desire,
Every breath you take.
It is the fire that fuels you
To do more than pass through life;
It urges you, instead, to live.

No matter the outcome, having felt love,
You will never be the same.
It may scar your heart and soul
And leave you only memories of forever.
Or, it may cause every day of your life
To feel like there is no need for tomorrow.
But, love is worth it. It is worth the risk...

For in all of life,
Love is truly the only risk worth taking.



Kris Hydmore
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

reality is better than my dreams <3

silence all around me
i am content
i laugh to myself

im at peace
even though i wont let myself accept it

Monday, May 9, 2011

just let it be
no questions
no deep thought processes
i will look back and wish i had
be in the moment
no worries about tomorrow
or what will fall or rise
whatever is meant to truly be
will be deep rooted through the torrents of analyzing

life is good B)

" My version of falling in love is borderline psychotic. Should be avoided at all costs. Get obsessed. Can't fall in love and function at the same time. All-consuming. Tunnel vision. Euphoric."
Graham Norton

" I am in love - and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life."
D. H. Lawrence

Dance as though no one is watching you. Love as though you have never been hurt before. Sing as though no one can hear you. Live as though heaven is on earth.

Do you love me because I'm beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?
-- Oscar Hammerstein

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
-- Erica Jong

I have you. A lover and a friend. You are everything I need. You are the sun, the air I breathe. Without you, life wouldn't be the same. Please don't ever go away. And if you go, then don't forget to take me with you.
-- Basia

I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
-- Ray Croft

Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.
-- Kay Knudsen

Love is not something you look for,
Love is something you become.
-- Langley

To live is like to love - all reason is against it, and all healthy instinct for it.
-- Samuel Butler

True love is like a pair of socks you gotta have two and they've gotta match.
-- Author Unknown

We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
-- Sam Keen

may 7, 2011

its happening
always there, always present.. lurking in the background
when i rise, before i drift
it melts over me
the warmth gels into me

every step
every breath
every glance/glimpse

all the beautiful things in the world are illuminated
glowing, luminescent
the lines are blurry but neon

in yellows and red
shimmering purple
all the spectrum of the rainbow

in my mind \
calling me
warning me tempting me..yielding me

let go..no wait dont..
throw caution to the wind
you will never live until you do

wholeheartedly and truly
