Strawberry Dreams

Purple Sky Paintings…
While sitting under a purple painting in the sky, My tears began to fall as I asked a tearful why? How life could make so much sense during one particular day, But when I awoke the next morning it was no longer that way.
Like someone had changed the language to something I didn’t understand, While my best friend had disappeared and was no longer holding my hand. The lines in the sand had been moved until they were buried beneath the ocean, Leaving me completely lost and engulfed in lots of chaotic emotion.
I looked up at the purple painted above me with misty eyes, While whispering a gut-wrenching and heartfelt goodbye. Goodbye to the shadows that hide within the purple hues, Goodbye to misunderstandings that dismiss my point of view.
Maybe purple is too dark to see what’s really there, Maybe it causes some of us to hide because we’re too scared. Perhaps golden sunsets are the best sky paintings of all, Because things can’t sneak up on you and make you feel small.
Maybe purple is for the people who have figured things out, The ones who no longer worry and have lots of doubt. They can have fun while playing hide and seek until the sun says goodnight, But when they awake the next morning everything is still alright.
So maybe I’ll stick with the golden sky paintings for just a little while, Or just until my heart mends and I find my missing smile. Because purple sky paintings are breathtaking for sure, But my broken heart can’t enjoy them properly until I find a cure.

Purple Sky Paintings…

While sitting under a purple painting in the sky,
My tears began to fall as I asked a tearful why?
How life could make so much sense during one particular day,
But when I awoke the next morning it was no longer that way.

Like someone had changed the language to something I didn’t understand,
While my best friend had disappeared and was no longer holding my hand.
The lines in the sand had been moved until they were buried beneath the ocean,
Leaving me completely lost and engulfed in lots of chaotic emotion.

I looked up at the purple painted above me with misty eyes,
While whispering a gut-wrenching and heartfelt goodbye.
Goodbye to the shadows that hide within the purple hues,
Goodbye to misunderstandings that dismiss my point of view.

Maybe purple is too dark to see what’s really there,
Maybe it causes some of us to hide because we’re too scared.
Perhaps golden sunsets are the best sky paintings of all,
Because things can’t sneak up on you and make you feel small.

Maybe purple is for the people who have figured things out,
The ones who no longer worry and have lots of doubt.
They can have fun while playing hide and seek until the sun says goodnight,
But when they awake the next morning everything is still alright.

So maybe I’ll stick with the golden sky paintings for just a little while,
Or just until my heart mends and I find my missing smile.
Because purple sky paintings are breathtaking for sure,
But my broken heart can’t enjoy them properly until I find a cure.

Over And Over Again…

When you take your words away from me, It’s like you take my sunshine away as well, Catapulting me into the darkest and most foreboding storm ever, Where my mind gangs up on me by throwing lots of “what ifs” in my direction, Toying with me in the cruelest ways ever, While letting me imagine the worst on why you have gone on some unexpected hiatus, Leaving me to ponder everything over and over again, Like an endlessly looped nightmare that has no end, Because I’m already awake, So there is nothing I can do to escape the never-ending terror I find myself engulfed in, As I try desperately to grab hold of something that will eventually save me from the whirlpool of emotions that have me hopelessly trapped inside your last words, Mocking me without end, As they slowly drown me in my own tears over and over again.

When you take your words away from me,
It’s like you take my sunshine away as well,
Catapulting me into the darkest and most foreboding storm ever,
Where my mind gangs up on me by throwing lots of “what ifs” in my direction,
Toying with me in the cruelest ways ever,
While letting me imagine the worst on why you have gone on some unexpected hiatus,
Leaving me to ponder everything over and over again,
Like an endlessly looped nightmare that has no end,
Because I’m already awake,
So there is nothing I can do to escape the never-ending terror I find myself engulfed in,
As I try desperately to grab hold of something that will eventually save me from the whirlpool of emotions that have me hopelessly trapped inside your last words,
Mocking me without end,
As they slowly drown me in my own tears over and over again.

Two Soulmates…
Under a pink and blue masterpiece painted majestically in the sky, Two soulmates came together with love in their eyes. The rest of the world vanished away as they got lost in their sweet embrace, Each of them completely mesmerized by the love found upon the other’s face.
This is the way it had always been since their soulmate journey began, Each of them completely smitten as they became each other’s biggest fan. And as the sun continued to sink lower he wished the smitten soulmates sweet dreams, Yet a light remained lit between them as their smiles shone as bright as sunbeams.
The two soulmates continued to embrace as they got lost in Love’s magical spell, Revelling in a true love that began from the very first moment they fell. Their love continued to ignite their hearts as they fell even deeper in love, Realizing their hearts had merged seamlessly together like the pink and blue sky above.
And just as pink and blue make purple when the sun paints with these beautiful hues, When our colors are sprinkled with love and magic they create a celestial me and you. Two souls searching but finally found under a breathtaking soulmate sky, Two soulmates whose love has no beginning or end because true soulmates never say goodbye.

Painting ~ Two Soulmates ~ By Rachel Olynuk
——————————————————————————
I commissioned this amazing painting from a talented artist residing in Calgary, Alberta by the name of Rachel Olynuk. She listened carefully to my vision and ideas and then made them into this stunning reality. This painting was given to My Sweet Soulmate as a special gift so that he would always know without a shadow of a doubt just how much he truly means to me, and to let him know that I’ve loved every single step of our soulmate journey together so far because it’s got us where we are today. A place of happiness and love that transcends anything I’ve ever experienced before. :)

What Love Is To Me&#8230;

I was discussing the topic of love with a good friend of mine the other the day, and this was some of the thoughts that I shared with them during our very interesting conversation. *smile*


What is Love?What I&#8217;ve discovered over the past couple of decades is that love can be fleeting, so you have to be willing to take risks when it drops by when you least expect it. Love isn&#8217;t for the faint of heart, nor does it simply fall into your lap. Love is nothing like TV or movie relationships. It&#8217;s hard work that can rip at your heart and soul some days because it can be that gut-wrenching. It does not come in a perfect package with a pretty bow, nor does it come with a set of instructions. It&#8217;s messy. It&#8217;s complicated. It&#8217;s inconvenient. And it&#8217;s worth every bit of trouble it will ever cause you because it&#8217;s that amazing.
In the dictionary love is defined as a profoundly tender and passionate affection for another person. I agree with this definition, but I believe that love is so much more.
I truly believe that love is not the same for everyone. It&#8217;s almost like this living and breathing entity that continues to morph and change all the time. Because of this, you can&#8217;t second guess it, you can&#8217;t control it and you can&#8217;t smother it. It has to have space to blossom and grow into what it&#8217;s suppose to be, and no amount of micro-managing will ever change it&#8217;s outcome.
Love is a warm and safe place, not an obligation. It&#8217;s not intense passion every second of every day, but it&#8217;s a deep feeling that makes you feel a part of something very special. It&#8217;s a relationship based on a foundation of friendship and common interests that matures into a deep and lasting love for someone as a whole. It&#8217;s a deep connection like no other. This means they love you without reservation, there is no such thing as conditional and mistakes and do-overs are allowed. Forgiveness never has strings attached, and mistakes are not used like ammunition to be pulled out during a fight just so you can “one-up” the other person.
As corny as this may sound, love to me is like sunshine on the most perfect day ever. Love is like winning the lottery and feeling like the luckiest person in the whole world. Love is like coming home and finally feeling genuinely happy.
I honestly feel like everyone should have the opportunity to feel this way at least once during their lifetime.
Like I said, love is all this ^^^ and so much more.

You Melted My Heart&#8230;
You promised you&#8217;d always stand right by my side, While holding my hand and being my guide. You promised there was nothing I couldn&#8217;t share with you, That your ears were all mine and to simply be true.
But the offer you made me seemed too good to believe, So I would hesitate and hold back different parts of me, Trying to see if your words were in fact the real deal, While peering into your heart to see if you were for real.
You would smile when you&#8217;d catch me peeking in at your heart, You would even open yours wider so I could see every part, Of the sweet love you reserved there for me alone, Melting even more of my heart that had once been all stone.
This is what you have continued to do from the start, Surrounding me with your love so you could melt my whole heart, So that instead of carrying a heavy heart made of stone, You showered me with pure love and showed me I wasn&#8217;t alone.
You never gave up even when I pushed you away, No matter what I did you would always stay. You would even scoop me up and surround me with you, Which is when I discovered that you had magic too.
Because somehow you broke through despite all of my walls, And day after day you continued to make my heart fall, So that now my heart is no longer made up of stone and tears, Or consumed with lots of doubts and fears.
I no longer wonder if I will die from a broken heart, Because you somehow gently mended it part by part, Until I was able to feel our sweet love all around, No longer feeling lost but miraculously found.
Now instead of running from you I run straight into your embrace, With a heart full of love and a smile upon my face. No longer hiding but instead showing you my whole heart, Mirroring the love you&#8217;ve shown me right from the very start.

Moonshine&#8230;
I looked up at the sky and said hello to the moon, She seemed to shine even brighter almost like she knew, That I had stopped by just to visit with her for a little while, So when she shined even brighter it made my heart smile.

Sharing Secrets With The Moon&#8230;
Sometimes when my soul is feeling a bit weary, I will sit outside under a blanket of stars and snuggle up to the moon.

I will then whisper all my secrets to her while she listens without judgement or interruption, and it feels just like I&#8217;m talking with an old friend by the glow of the dreamiest nightlight ever.

How I Know&#8230;
Every time we think we&#8217;ve somehow reached the very end, One of us digs deep down and eventually decides to bend. Every time I think I can&#8217;t continue because my heart is just too sore, You take me by the hand and show me how our love is so much more.
Every time we hit an obstacle in our journey to forever, We hold each other tight and our love continues to endeavor. Every time I start listening to silly doubts inside my head, You sweep me up into your arms and show me our magic instead.
This is how I know the connection between us is real, Because of the amazing way it always makes us feel. This is how I know our love is forever and not fleeting at all, By the way it surrounds our hearts and by the way we continue to fall.

Looped&#8230;
My mind keeps replaying the events from that fateful day, As I cringe in embarrassment at the words I decided to say. I now find myself staring into the abyss of an impossible feat, While my heart gets stuck on an endless loop that time simply won&#8217;t delete.

Complications&#8230;
Words can get so complicated at times.
I truly want to explain to you exactly how I feel, but sometimes the words just spill out all wrong. So when I&#8217;m unsure, I keep my words to myself, or I bury them inside poems and journals that never see the light of day.
It&#8217;s so perplexing the way my words can come out just right one moment, and all wrong the next. I even find that if I don&#8217;t speak with a soft poetry-like tone while sprinkling flowery words all around, that the lack of poetry in my words can give some people the wrong impression. Almost like I&#8217;m sad or upset, when I&#8217;m neither of these things at all. It ends up taking the wind out of my sails during those moments when my words are completely misunderstood.
I so wish that saying what I feel hadn&#8217;t become so bloody complicated. *sigh*
