Emptiness

Della


I lived in a guilt of knowing the wrong, but still choosing it.
You belonged to someone else but the thought of you being your happiest with me convinced my doubts.

You were so grateful to me for being in your life as I showed you how it is to be loved with every ounce of someone’s existence.
You shared your secrets with me and you loved me the way you loved yourself.
You protected me and looked at me constantly as if it was our last day.

Your hugs were so tight,
felt like tattoos on my chest.
Your kisses were intoxicating
They made me dizzy with passion

Your love was my favorite kind of wine
It made me high
Oh baby! How did we turn out to be so helpless?

Happiness

Olaitan Osho


That feeling after a baby is born and the pain is gone,

when she looks into his eyes and says, ” I do”.

Being around the people that bring out the best in you,

the feeling of being accepted and appreciating yourself.

You realize that it is not just about having money when you give out to that old man sitting by the street and he starts crying and praying for you.

Have you ever wondered how the birds feel when soaring in the sky or how the horses feel galloping through the field?

That freedom and feeling of ecstasy, is intoxicating, spreading within you like a fire, and your soul comes alive.

Do not keep it to yourself.

The world might be a dark and cold place but there’s happiness also, so let it out, put a smile on someone’s face.

Sing with beautiful melodies.

Dance to the beat with joy.

Paint with radiating colors.

Share that feeling within you.

Share that happiness.
