"he who stands on tiptoe, doesn’t stand firm."

the Breaking in Making

we Spoke

the Rid:

to Skin the Skid

and Flesh the Live.

   

and who Said it was easy?

couldn’t have been you,

and it damn sure wasn’t me.

     

but we Built It …

Still 

Build

It:

the Breaking

of two,

in Making

of We.

Still.

I will…

only you

could Catch

Psychotherapy:

(via Psychology Today’s recent cover story)

“…Romance itself seeds the eventual belief that we have chosen the wrong partner. The early stage of a relationship, most marked by intense attraction and infatuation, is in many ways akin to cocaine intoxication,…

"and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today … talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."
