I think this is so important, so important to be sorry when we have wronged someone. it is not about whether we have done something right or wrong, everybody walks with their own choices and mistakes. it is about being accountable for something which we might have inflicted on someone, on purpose or by mistake. we all have wronged someone, but we can make it right by saying or acting sorry.
I saw you burn today
burning in the brightest, warmest, and deadliest fire
the fire that burnt the bridges
that destroyed lives
that warmed the deepest corners of our hearts with faith
that revived the sparks of unanswered silences
isn't it ironic that the fire made me calm?
i saw you burn today
saw the ashes turn into pixie dust
saw the phoenix rising
saw you turn the blue sky into scarlet and intimacy
saw the clouds gushing with amazement
felt the heartbeats calming at the sight of dawn
Love and fear 🌹
they say love is comforting
but i swear it has me scared to death
you tell me you're stressed
i hear you're completely fatigued
you tell me you're hungry
i hear you've been starving for days
you tell me you're cold
i hear you're stuck in a blizzard
you complain about the heat
and i can feel an inferno.
you tell me you're walking in the rain
i hear you're braving a hurricane.
and damn, when you're sick
i feel like each breath may be your last
i know i love you because i'm scared
wishing i could control the elements for you.
I was listening to steely dan’s song hey 19
and when the lyric comes up she don’t remember queen of soul, i got the chills. it’s a sad day as we have to say goodbye to one of the great voices of this world.
