Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

Just venting…

Story of my life. But you don’t know my life. So let’s keep pretending that I’m one of the strongest people you’ll ever know. That I’ll never need a hand because I always figure it out on my own. Does it make it easier for you? How do you do it? How do you see me that way? Maybe I should tell you the stories I thought you already knew. Every love lost, every bridge burned that I still try to cross… A part of me is more of a mess than you could ever imagine. 

You’d like to believe that I never tried sleeping with a broken heart. Believe that I didn’t cry myself a river and drown myself in puddles, or that I could hardly breathe while hidden under my covers. I’ve been broken just like you and the rest of us. And the fact that I don’t show it much means I just may need you even more. Even more than you thought you needed me. 

But I could never tell you these things because I don’t want you to be haunted with the things that haunt me. But I need you to see that I’m only human and I am not always strong. So give me your hand even when I don’t ask for one.

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.


“Learning from experiences is one of the ways in which we decide if experience may frighten us, weaken us or make us self-doubt, but it may also make us stronger. Sankofa teaches there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past.”
