    Default Love's Risk [nice one to share]

    Love's Risk

    There is a risk involved in everything
    Every time you share a smile
    Every time you shed a tear
    You are opening yourself up to hurt.
    Some people tread slowly through life,
    Avoiding the closeness risk brings,
    Side-stepping the things they can't understand
    Turning away from those who care too much,
    Those who care stay too long,
    Those who hold too tightly.
    There is never an easy way to love
    You can not approach it cautiously
    It will not wait for you to arm yourself.
    It does not care if you turn away
    It is everywhere, it is everything.
    Love is the greatest of all risks.
    It is not reliable, it is not cautious,
    It is not sympathetic
    It is unprejudiced and unmerciliess.
    It strikes the strongest of mind,
    And brings them to their knees in one blow.
    Even in the best of times, love hurts.
    It hurts to need, it hurts to belong,
    It hurts to be the other part of someone else,
    Without either of your consent.
    But, from the moment it overtakes you,
    It hurts worse to be all alone.
    The risk of love never depletes;
    It grows stronger and more dangerous with time.
    But, it's in the total surrender of all defense,
    That we, no matter weak or strong,
    No matter willing or captive,
    No matter what, we truly experience love.
    Despite the many things love is not,
    Outweighing it all are the things that love is.
    Love is surrender without a loss.
    It is a gift without the cost.
    It consumes your every thought & desire,
    Every breath you take.
    It is the fire that fuels you
    To do more than pass through life;
    It urges you, instead, to live.
    No matter the outcome, having felt love,
    You will never be the same.
    It may scar your heart & soul
    And Leave you only memories of forever.
    Or, it may cause every day of your life
    To feel like there is no need for tomorrow.
    But, love is worth it. It is worth the risk...
    For in all of life,
    Love is truly the only risk worth taking.

    Mo, my notebook is getting thicker! Thanks!
    Just once I'd like to find something that you didn't have so I could share with you.

    Hey I got one...its my PP's & it goes like this:

    The 13th Attempt

    This is my 10th attempt at writing you tonight. The other nine beginnings I balled up the paper and threw them away.

    I know what I'm feeling inside, but it is deep down in the heart, and often times, the mind is unable to comprehend the secrets of the heart.

    There are times I find myself all caught up in the strange languages of my feelings, and even though somehow I understand just what my feelings are saying to me, still... I'm unable to articulate this understanding into meaningful words.

    This is my 11th attempt at writing you tonight. The other ten beginnings I balled up the pages and threw them away.

    I just wanted to express to you that "I love you". Yet, what I'm feeling inside my heart seems like so much more than these three simple words.

    So now...I begin my 12th attempt at writing you tonight...I know inside my heart what I'm feeling, yet, I guess that what I'm feeling is just too damn deep for my mind to shape into Valentines in the midst of April.

    Whatever the case might be...
    I'm now beginning my 13th attempt.
