When she is sad…

“When she is sad: Ask her to dance. Take her hands and pull her up off the ground. She is fluid like water, like the wind and rain. Watch her twirl, round and round, as though she were a tornado. 

Sing her a song. She will rest her head on your chest and laugh. ‘You can’t even sing’ she will say, but do not stop. Do not stop until she is begging for your silence with her lips on yours in muffled gasps. 

Tell her a story: that time when you were five and fell into a pond and almost drowned. Tell her you are so glad a passerby dived in and saved your life because otherwise you would never have met her. 

Sit in silence and trace the veins in her neck with your tongue until she sighs and whispers ‘you are keeping me alive.’ Say that she is doing just fine on her own but hold her a little closer and tighter anyway; she needs it. 

“It’s okay. It’s okay to be sad.” Sometimes these are the only words you need. Pepper her tear stained cheeks with kisses and say “ it’s okay. I’ll be here. I’ll always be here.””

Love Will Come Back

“Love Will Come Back When You’re Ready For It 
Love never really goes away, it gives us a few breaks, it may forget about us for a few months or maybe a few years, but it always comes back. It comes back when you’re ready for it and it comes back when you’ve let go of the idea that love destroys people.
You will find love once you’ve learned to let go. It will come back to you when you stop holding on to the heartbreak, the tears, the drama and the pain, it comes back when you hope for the future instead of lamenting the past and it comes back when you learn that not all lovers are meant to last, that some people are not right for you and that some stories are not meant to be relived.
You will find love once you’ve learned to value yourself. Because this is what it all comes down to really, how far you’re willing to compromise, how much you can really take before you decide to leave and how well you treat yourself so you can set the standards for how other people treat you.
You will find love once you’ve learned to attach love to things other than relationships. Once you’ve learned to love your job or live your passion, once you’ve invested more time and effort with friends and family, once you’ve known how to love or care for a pet. Because there are so many things other than people that will open your heart to love, if you look closely, love is everywhere.
You will find love once you’ve understood that you have to keep living even when you’re heartbroken. Even if you hate being single, even if you’re lonely, you still have to live, you have to go out and travel. You have to sign up for new classes or hobbies or activities, you have to call old friends and go visit them wherever they are. The more you live, the more you will find love in unusual places and fall in love with different faces and you will find yourself learning more about love and less about heartbreak.
Love will come back when you’re ready to set it free and fly with it.

How I Know I Love You by: Mila Jaroniec

The Devil's Words

I know I love you because I want to get you soup when you’re sick. Not only do I want to get it for you, I want to make it for you so you can eat something made with love instead of with crushed insects and preservatives. I know I love you because I want to slap anyone who hurts you, even if it’s your boss. I want to hold you when you’re having a nightmare and kiss the spot that hurts when you bump into something. I know I love you because I want you to be healthy even when you’re not sick, and that’s why I keep bugging you to change your crappy eating ways even though I know you’re over hearing about it.

I know I love you because I worry about the stuff only people who love you worry about, like the amount of quality sleep…
