Desired and Deserved Love

First learn about Nature. Second learn about yourself. Third learn about someone else. Fourth, replace learn with love. Fifth, return to first, second then third.

Outstretched before her, representations of everything absent in her life.

Hey eyes scan the vast and infinite horizon, depicting all things beautiful and wondering.

The sound of the waves, repeatedly crashing into the shore,

Substitutes, for her, a beating core.

Predictable yet steady; an absent heart, survived by the sea.

With every crest, with every collision into the sand-

she feels, once again, her racing heartbeat;

full of perfect passion and deep desire.

On her face, she feels the ocean breeze; delicate yet strong.

She cannot see it, but she can feel it.

A love without question; a love without condition.

A love without doubt; a love without motive.

Relentless and continuous; she prays it to never subside.

She looks up and she is challenged by the sun.

Once a selfish sun, now keeps a selfless existence.

Just as the sky shares space with the sun,

the sun shares light with her.

A balance of space; a reciprocity of light.

The sun beams down on her paleness-

restores her ability to find radiance within.

A path illuminates for her and should she follow,

she understands that the choice is hers and hers alone.

She imagines her independence.

She pictures her path.

Her steps lead her back to Nature.

Her strides return her to the elements.

Reminding her to trust only in what is real.

Reminding her to trust only in what is beautiful.

She finds substance and solace within.

She longed for so much.

She longed to be someone else's sun.

She had been left, surrounded by darkness.

She has been left, revolved by nothing.

She desired a love deserved, to not dim her radiance.

She desired a love deserved, to allow shine-even on her darkest days.

A desired love deserved that had been hiding.

A desired love deserved that has been found.

A desired love that was always within.

Love of the most beautiful kind-

A true love of her own self.
