Yesterday! Yesterday, I had a conversation with Love.
I asked Love: "How long do I have to seek you before I find you?"
Love asked me: "Where have you looked so far?"
I told Love: "I looked so far and so hard that I put my prayers in an envelope and sent them beyond the stars.
Hoping that you'd write me back, but when you failed to repsond and I ran out of stamps, I chased you to the edge of my sanity.
I became the laughing stock of my own vanity, so caught up in the thought of you more then my own humanity. Once I realized I couldn't catch you, I waited till the thought of you died so that I could disect you.
Figuring the best please to find love was inside Love, so when you died Love, I put on my gloves, looking to find live love inside Love.
Inspite of my best try Love, I couldn't find you. When most people would've abandened your rancid body after empty handed heartache, I stood by you.
Hand in hand, interlocking my dreams with your wings, pinky promises, my accoplishments, words of bond. Like Barry Bonds, I thought I hit a home run with you Love, but I was just juiced up.
Now I'm dehydrated, Love, I feel all used up, so I brought Hope." Hope showed me where to look.
Hope told me: "You got the right jones, you're just reading the wrong book, but you're on the right shelf."
I told Hope: "I looked every where there is to look for Love."
Hope asked me: "Have you looked inside yourself? Have you taken a minute to apprecitate that you're not second best? Or are you just taking away your battery?
Have you taken a minute to appreciate every minute of yourself? Or are you just running circles around your anatomy?"
When Hope asked me that, I stepped outside my glass box. I just stopped and took time to smell the roses of my clock.
I looked to see what made me tick, listened to myself tock. Took the time to appreciate the way the watch maker created me.
I realized all this time I couldn't love anybody because I hated me. I thought about how long I sought love, and we never crossed paths.
It's because you can love never the person that makes you whole, untill you love the other half!
