Great relationships start with self.

A flower doesn't bloom on


She wants your time.

She wants your tenderness.

She wants to be put in safe places.


Intimacy goes beyond the physical

It is more than just sex

Anyone can rub two bodies together

for pleasure

Intimacy is letting the other person

KNOW you, SEE you, FEEL you

The deepest parts of you

Intimacy is the action of making

yourself known


Sis, how can you

expect him to know

and feel you. When

you don't even know

and feel yourself?



So that I can

breathe him in

even deeper


Sure, eyes are beautiful

And it's less about the eyes

And more about how far she invites

you into her soul
