The Love That Keeps On Taking

Even with my beating heart
Held bloody and hot
In his greedy hand
He still wanted more of me
Even with my last breath
Still warm against his face
He still needed me to give more

After i have
Stripped my self naked and bare
Peeled the skin back
From my skull to my feet
Folded it neatly
With fumbling bleeding skeletal fingers
And handed it over
He still wanted more
Needed more
I have given away
Every bit and piece of myself
Yet Still he demanded more.

2015: Friendships


I am very excited because this is my first article in 2015, it has being a while since i wrote an article and i am excited. 2014 has being an amazing year for me. I figured out what i wanted to do with my life, found my career path, wrote a whole lot, published a book, re-designed my blog and so on. A roller coaster. This article is about friendships. I have never written an article about friendship so well, here it goes.

There is nothing more beautiful than having a friend who gets you. Who knows exactly how you feel without you having to tell that person. Some people come into our lives to make us realise all we have been missing, to make us find ourselves. We end up finding pieces of ourselves in the people we least expect, people whom we initially thought were nothing like us.
In the quest for making meaningful connections and having friendships that last, do not over think it. The people whom you strike an instant connection with will come into your life when you least expect it. Most of us are lucky to have people in our lives whom have been there from the beginning, whom have stuck with us through thick and thin. We must appreciate those people. Take time from your busy life to remind those people just how important they are to you. Most of us need a constant reminder of how important we are to other people. Be that friend whom expresses love and gratitude. Treat your friends how you would like them to treat you.
Choose your friends wisely. Realise that some people are there for the long run while others are there for the moment and that is ok, just do not make the mistake of thinking everyone will always stay. Not everyone stays, i learned that the hard way and i am still working on accepting that. People always leave.
Beware, there are people whom you think are your friends but they only come to you when they are in need, take note of those people, differentiate them from people who are always there for you. Understand that it is okay for some people to only contact you when they need something because we are all different, expecting everyone to be just like you is wrong. For your space and soul though, do not take those people as people you can always count on, know your real friends. Those who will text/call in the middle of the day, amidst the buzz of everyday life just to check up on you, those are your people. Hold on to them, appreciate them, let them know how kick-ass they are. Be an awesome friend. Awesome people attract awesome people.
It is completely okay not to have a lot of friends, heck it is the best thing, personally, i have a small group of people whom i can truly call my friends. They are the people whom have being there for me when no one was, whom have seen me at my worst and still cared about me. The smaller your circle of friends, the easier it is to distinguish the real people from the fake ones.
Not everyone will like you or accept you, flaws and all and that is okay. You will meet people who accept the good and bad in you, stick to those people, appreciate them. I have no problems with people who don't like because i know i have people who think the sun shines out my butt and i am okay with that.
Be kind to yourself. Surround yourself with people whose energy does not clash with your energy, you do not need negative energy around you. Science proves that opposites attract but with my friends, i can disprove that notion. If you heart is good and pure, you will attract like hearts just as much as evil attracts evil.
Love your friends. Tell them. Be there for them. Love the people who love you.
