When I stopped expecting from you

I started receiving from you

Feels so good

To want nothing anymore

And yet receive





Now if you could just

Put your red pen down

For one minute

Disable your autocorrect

And erase your eraser’s


And take a moment to just







I know…

I know that if you keep staring

Long enough

You’ll see

My scars

My bruises

Where I bleed internally

I used to wonder

What you think


No longer waiting

No longer expecting

No longer seeking

So liberating


It no longer matters what you see

Because I’m no longer looking

In your eyes

To find me

    Yaaasss! When I figured that out… Huntyyyy! Yes! The thing is I don’t think most of us realize that we’re looking for that validation, or that non existent reflection of ourselves in others. Anyhoo loving this, loving you, keep doing it! xo

    • Guilty as charged! It’s why it resonates with me so deeply. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks…that’s what keeps the authenticity in authenticitee.
