Strangers By Your Side

How does it feel after a night with a stranger by your side?

Did you love the smell of her hair?

Did the texture of her skin soothe your mind?

How did you feel holding her body in your arms?

Were you happy?

Did she fill the empty space in your heart?

Oh, no?

So on you go.

Another night, another strange body lying next to you.

You go through the same motions.

Strangers by your side, night after night.

Running your hands through her hair.

Caressing your palms over the curves of her body.

Kissing with no real magic.

Only one intention…

to feel.

That you are alive.

And once you get there…what is left?

Does it leave you feeling lonely?

Is it just another temporary distraction for a void you desperately wish to fill?

Friday is here…and it starts all over again.

Could I be wrong? Can there be true enjoyment in spending hours with bodies that mean nothing to you?

Can short, molecule connections be enough to nourish your soul?

Maybe…

Maybe it’s not depth you seek.

Nor someone to grow old with.

Maybe moments of oneness is enough.

I really do wonder how you do it…so well.

I wonder…are you okay?

Like really, are you okay?

I worry about you.

I worry about the darkness that resides within you.

I worry your fears will win.

To never know what true, everlasting oneness would be like…

is sad.

As you filter through the variety of possibilities, maybe you might find it.

If…that’s what you truly seek.

Maybe then you’ll realize how special you are…

and that not everyone you lay beside deserves to have you.

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken. I think that's it :) Wait, then there is God, the source of everything. Astrology, quantum physics, Abraham Hicks, Agape...I should just end this now, LOL.

Any thoughts?
