Favorite Quote:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

Eyes touch, hold,
Suspend us in time for a moment.
All else falls away,
Suddenly unimportant.

Our eyes lock.
We see nothing of the world around us.
We hear nothing but our own breathing.
The heat between us rising,
An ever-growing steam.

Our unspoken desires
Apparent in our faces,
Yet we dare not move any closer;
For fear that others may see,
May disapprove,
Would it matter if they did?

Those hands on his lap-
If only they would reach out
And let me feel their warmth;
Caress me with their love.

For their love is true,
I know this,
Because mine carry the same feeling.
True love,
Sometimes ignored,
Pushed aside,
To wait for a later day.

But someday,
It will wait no longer,
And love will reign free.
