You know he said under normal circumstances you inviting me to the bedroom would be the highlight of my day.I crossed my arms and sat on the bed. I did so out of simple fatigue but a moment later I was struck by what I was doing. This is where Adrian sleeps. Im touching the covers hes wrapped in every night. What does he wear Does he wear anythingI jumped up.
Sometimes loneliness makes the loudest noise.
I could feel the warmth of his presence as if a soft blanket had been wrapped around my soul around my heart. It held me and protected me. It sheltered me and I knew I wasnt alone anymore.
Those who cannot conceive Friendship as a substantive love but only as a disguise or elaboration of Eros betray the fact that they have never had a Friend. The rest of us know that though we can have erotic love and friendship for the same person yet in some ways nothing is less like a Friendship than a love-affair. Lovers are always talking to one another about their love Friends hardly ever about their Friendship. Lovers are normally face to face absorbed in each other Friends side by side absorbed in some common interest. Above all Eros while it lasts is necessarily between two only. But two far from being the necessary number for Friendship is not even the best. And the reason for this is important.... In each of my friends there is something that only some other friend can fully bring out. By myself I am not large enough to call the whole man into activity I want other lights than my own to show all his facets... Hence true Friendship is the least jealous of loves. Two friends delight to be joined by a third and three by a fourth if only the newcomer is qualified to become a real friend. They can then say as the blessed souls say in Dante Here comes one who will augment our loves. For in this love to divide is not to take away.
I never understood how men could remember all those details about sports but yet were incapable of remembering where they set their car keys or wallet.
I believe that love--not imitation--is the sincerest form of flattery. Your imitator thinks that you can be duplicated your lover knows you cant.
...Despite the mayhem that followed Bruno found that he was still holding Shmuels hand in his own and nothing in the world would have persuaded him to let go.
Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace not the means to anything but the alpha and omega. An end in itself.
I love you I whisper. I love you exactly as you are.
I believe this. When we meet those we fall in love with there is an aspect of our spirit that is historian a bit of a pedant who reminisces or remembers a meeting when the other has passed by innocentlybut all parts of the body must be ready for the other all atoms must jump in one direction for desire to occur.
Follow me reader Who told you that there is no true faithful eternal love in this world May the liars vile tongue be cut out Follow me my reader and me alone and I will show you such a love
Love is like learning to ride a midget which Ive never done because Im afraid of heights.
You are my whole heart Scarlet. And this is breaking it.My heart cracked open and clear dropped out of me. My mouth opened and I looked round me and stamped my foot. Does this look like a good time to tell me that you damn stupid boy I meant to sound mean but my voice wobbled. NowHe gave a little smile. My foul-mouthed warrior.
To return to love to get the love we always wanted but never had to have the love we want but are not prepared to give we seek romantic relationships. We believe these relationships more than any other will rescue and redeem us. True love does have the power to redeem but only if we are ready for redemption. Love saves us only if we want to be saved.
Im not married he said softly because I cant stomach the idea of marrying a woman inferior to me in mind and spirit. It would mean the death of my soul.
I was his exception and as much as I had tried to fight my feelings he was mine.
What is it about the moment you fall in love How can such a small measure of time contain such enormity I suddenly realize why people believe in dj vu why people believe theyve lived past lives because there is no way the years Ive spent on this earth could possibly encapsulate what Im feeling. The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it generationsall of them rearranging themselves so that this precise remarkable intersection could happen. In you heart in your bones no matter how silly you know it is you feel that everything has been leading to this all the secret arrows were pointing here the universe and time itself crafted this long ago and you are just now realizing it you are now just arriving at the place you were always meant to be.
She had two lips like strawberries and the seeds gave her kisses texture. I preferred kissing her over two scoops of vanilla ice cream.
My love is pizza shaped. Wont you have a slice Its circular so theres enough to go around.
And I got out of there without punching anyone kicking anyone or breaking down in tears. Some days the small victories are all you achieve.
