old love

where old love grows

take me there

even when the shadows cover up the vibrancy of the burning passion

i’ll still know it’s there

i’ll leave it to rest

and water it until the morning sunlight hits it once again

-like the sun, inspiration and passion come and go-

-this does not mean we shut the shades-


it’s effortless to give up on what you love the most because you don’t “feel it” anymore. being IN love with something is the emotional high of love itself. its really a glorious thing. it’s the butterflies and the giggles and the (what seems to be) endless passion. that’s why we confuse it so much with love itself. but what happens when that goes away? we release it from ourselves, and search for it again elsewhere, constantly looking for that “high” in something or someone else. we find out it wasn’t love at all because it didn’t stay. what we forget is this pattern of feeling is only temporary joy. you’ll end up going sunrises and sunsets missing the raw version of love. the love that only comes when you’re past that feeling. you can’t expect a feeling to last in its full intensity. whatever you think true love is, it’s always, ALWAYS consistent. it will always stay, it’s deeper than a feeling, and it is selfless. think of it as this: “the thrill you feel on first seeing some delightful place dies away once you really go and live there. does this mean it would be better not to learn to fly and not live in that beautiful place? it is just the people who are ready to submit to the loss of the thrill and settle down to the sober interest, who are most likely to meet new thrills in some quite different direction.”
