True Love

Oh those dreams are so soft and so appealing
yet so cruel

No one ever tells you about all the work that goes into those beautiful moments with a lover

They never tell you
that you need to be strong, know yourself and not succumb to your weaker, darker sides
that you need to stay adamant and believe in your principles and know what you are looking for - never compromising and settling for something less than what you know you need
that you can't even settle for your best-friend, because good friendship, deep and unconditional love is not everything you need for a marriage - something is still missing

Yes, those dreams are beautiful, and if one day I could have them
it would satisfy my longing heart - my mind that wants to be spoken with - my soul that yearns for a partner - my body that loves to give love

But until then I won't continue searching
I wont settle for less

Until then
happiness lies in a cup of hot chocolate
in the peace from the soulful Words in those beautiful Books
in the great conversations with a close friend
in the breath and visual impressions while out on a jog in nature

and when I am ready and wiser

hopefully I will be prepared enough to be able to give
and ask for

True Love
