Always Pray

Always Pray

Love is like the sunrise; hope appeared at the same time on two faces and in two souls connected by the same wonders and tears of life.

Desire

20130505-202249.jpg

“Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have. Desire leaves us heartbroken, it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life and as tough as wanting something can be, the people who suffer the most are those who don’t know what they want.”
— Grey’s Anatomy

Angels in the Sky

Angels in the Sky

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

–Touched by An Angel by Maya Angelou

Sweet Soul

Sweet Soul

My sweet soul desires freedom
To escape from the confines of this body
My sweet soul wants to dance with the clouds
To join the angels in the sky
My sweet soul desires to connect with the beloved
To not have confused thoughts about worldly problems
My sweet soul desires to be with the Divine
To be connected with the universe
To be reunited with my one true love

–Truespirit

Rumi

Rumi

I desire you more than food or drink
My body my senses my mind
hunger for your taste
I can sense your presence in my heart
although you belong to all the world
I wait with silent passion for one gesture
one glance from you
