the moon hung low is too beautiful for this.

i want to love you.
and the rest of you.


there is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear

but i refuse to love you.  i’m scared as hell.

scared. this is going to hurt.
i’m going to hurt.

i refuse to love you.
because i love something in me. so deeply.
so much more deeply than i love you.
i know what matters.
i am what matters.

what the hell?

i want to love you.
really love you.
beyond expectation. beyond invitation.

i’m throwing off this fear.
it’s weighing me down.
keeping me here. alone.

i want to be honest. and to be to brave.
for the sake of being real.
for the sake of loving you.

i want to love.
to learn to love–
not without fear–
but in spite of it.
in spite of myself.

beloved,
let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves
is born of God and knows God. the one who does not love does not know
God, for God is love. by this the love of God was manifested in us,
that God has sent his only begotten son into the world so that we might
live through him.


beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

no one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and his love is perfected in us.

i want to be real when i grow up.

  3. i was thinking maybe you could work on this a little. using the word “ya’ll” could really help you out.for example: “essentially, i’m more important than ya’ll” nice ring to it.

  5. I haven’t a clue who you are, but that’s really awesome. I’m going to save it, and I’m also going to join [i’m always barefoot,] because I am. Just ignore me, if you like.
    I want the music to go with this, I think.

  7. Why on earth then do you allow tea-cake to be served up for your guests?  What ideas you have of hospitality!

  12. What is real? How do you define real? ….. For that matter, How do you define the word “Is”?
    Anywho, you know I love these words from your heart!
    Also, did you change the pic of your sister in the post below? I thought I remembered braces in the pic……….very sneaky!
