Oh, they’ll make you come till you think the earth is moving. They’ll coax confessions out of your passionate sighs as you clench around their fingers. They’ll taste your honesty as they gently ask your mouth questions with theirs. They’ll listen to your childhood traumas while holding you close. They’ll lick a path of intimacy down your spine and into the deepest part of you. They’ll weave nostalgia and routine into your memories. Then they will leave.
Are dead to me, are not in my life cycle.
Release me. I have released you.
Fragmented me and rejected me over and over. Eon after eon.
I wanted you for millennia. Yearned.
I have let you go.
Our souls now take different paths.
Cosmos converge. Diverge.
Peace at last.
As you were.
People to stay away from:
Those that tell you that they didn’t ask you to perform a selfless act for them. They do not recognise kind acts or doing something without expectation. Or that someone will do something for them because they want to. Their excuse? Creates unnecessary expectations. Reality? They cannot stand to be accountable for selfish acts. They will damage you.
Gaslighters. Self explanatory.
People who use the term self love/self healing as an excuse to perform toxic acts.
Indecisive people. To avoid decision, the road of destruction would be preferable to them.
Cowards. They will bring down the world on its knees if it means escaping what they fear.
All in all, you alone are responsible for allowing yourself to feel a certain way. If you own your own stuff and hold yourself accountable to the actions you perform then all you can do is try to navigate away from toxic energies and situations. If it feels wrong , it’s wrong. Don’t ignore it. There’s a reason why that part of our senses was retained during evolution. Human intention may appear innocent but in the long run can turn out to be malevolent.
A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I knew to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
Cowards make the best torturers. Cowards understand fear and they can use it.
Mark Lawrence, Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #1)
You’re gutless. It’s how you were made. And that’s not such a bad thing because your saving grace is that you’ve never lied to yourself about it. Not about that. Nothing wrong with cowardice as long as it comes with prudence. But when a coward stops remembering who he is… God help him.
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
Idiot. Which road do you take when you’re running from something weaker than yourself? Or maybe you’re the one looking for an excuse to back out.
I do not wish to be a coward like the father of mankind and throw the blame upon a woman.
Ouida, Wanda, Countess von Szalras.
Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it.
The coward says in his heart “There is no love.” Because, standing in the shadows of the big, grand, and powerful existence of love, his small spirit is left feeling even smaller and less significant. And so he chooses to deny the existence of love altogether. Because he is too small to have it.
C. JoyBell C.
It is for your own good to love a dare-devil rather than a coward. A dare-devil is a unique devil, battling your fears, your pains, conquering your uncertainties, carrying you his arms, and flying out of the corrosive fire. The coward is a trickster serpent, which vanishes in your time of despair, and appears in time of equanimity.
Michael Bassey Johnson
Wisdom is prudent cowardice – Immortal Illusion
How silly, that they could talk of love and want and need, but the idea of a simple noun for each other was too complicated by half. Cat liked grand titles well enough. Hard not to when most of them included terms like Queen or Empress. But getting her to talk about more… routine labels hadn’t been very successful so far. Still, Kara mused, there was no doubt how committed Cat was to this relationship, judging by how much time they spent together.
“I know we started talking this morning, but this is so much more than a headline to me,” Cat continued, leaning in to gently tilt Kara’s chin upwards. “What you are to me? How I feel about you? We’re going to have to invent language for it, Kara. You deserve so much more than trite little words that I’ve wasted on other people. You deserve everything.”
