the fight.


I don't have the luxury to think about you.

Not until the day you show up to fight for me--a day that I'm altogether, completely unsure will ever arrive--not until that day do I have the luxury to even think about you.

But should you choose to--to show up and to fight--then, then I will fight for you. With everything I have, I will fight. I will fight with a ferocity unmatched by any woman you've before known. I will fight with a ferocity that will absolutely unmoor you. Such is my strength and my will and my grit. Such is my ability to heft and to heave and to drag the heavens toward the earth.
That is how I will love you.
Should you ever gather the courage to ask.

But until then, until your question and until that-day-that-will-very-likely-never-come, I will go out into the world and search for someone else.
And my lips will forget your name.

You have such a talent for expressing things like no one else. I feel this way. So strongly. But I would never be able to put those feelings into words. Thanks, as always, for sharing so much of yourself and your talents.

This is beautiful, such emotion. I absolutely love your style of writing. The raw emotion gets me every time. Thank you for writing your blog. I really mean it!

I can't handle the beauty in your writing. Well, I can (and gladly do), but the sentiment is there. You strike such a chord with your writing; there's a quote that I love "music expresses that which cannot be said..." Your writing is dangerously close to that. The honesty and your arrangement of words... You have a gift. I could go on and on. Thank you

Wow. This is so beautiful. You're so candid, yet leave just enough mystery that another soul can say they can relate. I love your writing.

After a tearful ride home from work, I needed this. Thank you. Your writing is always so honest. Your words are quite often the ones I can't come up with for myself.

Thank you for helping me put into words what I have been unable to formulate in my mind. The feelings were there, but I wasn't quite sure how to express them. I love reading your blog. It always seems to fit my life perfectly. :)
