Love Has No Walls

Thu, 10/12/2017 - 14:01 -- flynnc

Love is feeling the wind fall through your hands.

Love is knowing that permission is not needed, but wanted.

Love is having respect and trust. 

Trust to let them decide their own fate.

Trust to make choices.

Love is respecting the needs of others, and letting your other half feel independent.

Respect to trust their decisions.

Respect to understand their own thoughts.

 

Love cannot be barred, and it cannot be forced.

To love through force, is not love at all.

Force does not bring comfort.

Force brings fear.

Force brings distance.

 

To know love through force is like looking through a hole in the wall.

It is there, and you know it.

You hope for the hole in the wall to get bigger, so you sit patiently.

You wait for the love you want.

Hoping, waiting, praying for the hole in the wall to get bigger.

To escape from this force, you must break the wall.

The hole in the wall will grow, and the force will be no longer.

 

Love has no walls.

There will be bumps and stop signs.

There may even be a few detours.

But there will always be room to move forward.
