You walk out of sight,
Your feet barely touch the ground.
I look at you,
But you don’t hear,
“I can’t take it anymore. I feel awful. I think I am going crazy. There is no help for me. My life has no meaning.” Painful, right? Especially when a dear friend is telling you this. And, not only once but with an increased regularity. The least I can do is to take time to listen, figure out what is behind her feelings and cheer her up. Yet, no matter how much I am trying to help a friend of mine, I am less and less convinced that I am not making any difference. I have no words to express how sad it makes me. I know her for many years now. As the years have passed, life served her often lots of negative moments and experiences. She has the purest heart a person could have and a that’s more of a reason for me to think that it is not fair that she had to suffer so much, over and over. People often tried to make her feel helpless. But she didn’t totally break down and I really wish to believe that she would not this time or any time in the future. Why was she chosen to be hurt so often?
I know. You might think I’ve gone crazy by trying to make this kind of analogy. But let me explain what crossed my mind. When one stops eating meat there will seldom be comments from people around. This happens in countries where culture or religion support eating meat. While some comments are funny, others may be annoying. Some people will repeatedly try to convince a vegetarian to go back to eating meat. Their opinion is that it is healthier and I am sure their intention is good. But, will they succeed? Not really. One makes a choice and will stick to it.
You are in love. You feel butterflies and all the cells of your body breathe for the beloved one. Life has a new meaning. It seems that you don’t need anything else except the one you love. You are generously expressing deep feelings of love to each other and pure happiness radiates all around you.
I love you.
I can’t live without you.
You are the love of my life.
I have waited my whole life for you.
I want to live with you till the end of time.
"In hope of a world, that does not celebrate the fake & the cold
In hope of a world where true emotions can be uphold
In hope of a world where truth is told
In hope of the world where sugar coated abuses are not sold
In hope of a world that does not force you to fit in & fold
In hope of a world where tears are allowed to unfold
You are not told to fake happy when your heart can no longer hold
In the hope of a world that doesn’t go numb & cold,
While faking positivity & not being bold
In hope of that world where you & I can be true to our core
We are not judged for being human
And not expected to be a bot, running on a computer code
Let the beauty of true emotions and the warmth of real unfold
Sweet, sour, bitter, happy, sad, high, low, cold
Sincere bonds and true connects
Let us not turn the world into a fake emotion(less) zone"
