ADDICTED TO LOVE
Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes

You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

You see the signs, but you can't read
You're runnin' at a different speed
You heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind

You can't be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If there's some left for you
You don't mind if you do

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your will is not your own
You're heart sweats and teeth grind
Another kiss and you'll be mine

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

Poem
How do I love thee?
By Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Artist: Jimi Hendrix
Album: Axis: Bold as Love
Title: Bold As Love


Anger he smiles, towering in shiny metallic purple armour
Queen Jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground

Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
They quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on

But they're all bold as love, yes, they're all bold as love
Yeah, they're all bold as love
Just ask the axis

My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war and
ribbons of euphoria
Orange is young, full of daring,
But very unsteady for the first go round
My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact I'm trying to say it's frigthened like me
And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from, eh,
Giving my life to a rainbow like you
But, I'm eh , yeah, I'm bold as love
Yeah, yeah
Well I'm bold, bold as love (hear me talking, girl)
I'm bold as love
Just ask the axis (he knows everything)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Current Mood: contemplative

Quote
"Realize that true happiness lies within you.
Waste no time and effort
searching for peace and contentment and joy
in the world outside.
Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting,
but only in giving.
Reach out.
Share.
Smile.
Hug.
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others
without getting a few drops on yourself."

The theme park of life
Who needs theme parks when you have life. Life’s roller coasters are far more thrilling then any theme park ride. Sure you don’t get the physical strain of holding on for dear life but the mental strain is far more exciting and there is much more at stake then just your lunch on life’s rollercoaster. The many hills and valleys and then that nice smooth stretch before the twisted upside down spiral loop, and the most turbulent part of the ride is love. Love is full of twist and sharp turns and just sudden stops. It can be the most wonderful experience of your life but it can also be the most tragic. There have been more deaths on that part of the ride then any other. If you don’t hold through the ruff spots and really enjoy the calms you are probably going to fall out of the car. What makes love so dangerous is that you are not alone. During that part of the ride you link up with someone else and if they aren’t holding on tight enough and they fall out, they may take you with them. But if you see they are losing there grip you can take a chance and hold them in the car, it may cause you to lose your grip to but then again it might not. If you and your partner are able to hold though love then your cars will remained joined for the remainder of the ride. Of course after you survive love the first time the rest of the ride can be kind of boring so many will try love again and again just for the thrill of it. Those people also have the ability to get up and get back in the ride when they fall out. They may have some bumps and burses but rarely is it fatal for them. The point I am getting at is I’m one of those that enjoys the thrill of love and have fallen out of the car a few times. I have even tried linking up with more then one at a time and that is very interesting. Though I’m not the lead of that group I am a part of it and its been hell some times but those calms are just that much more enjoyable with more people. And anyone who says the ride wasn’t designed that way needs to learn to try new things every now and then. In my mind the ride is designed to be flexible, that way not every one has the same ride and it’s different every time to try it.

Feel free to make your own posts and thoughts
I hope everyone will eventually start posting thier own thoughts on the subject.

Here is a starter for people to think on taken from a reply to one of my comments.

Do you believe that polyamory is possible and if so what "issues" have you had to deal with to work through your own feelings on it?

Please note that if you are not a member of the community you cannot reply. I am debating making this whole community "friends only" meaning you have to be a member to read or respond. Currently it is only members that can respond, but anyone can read.

Welcome to the last day of the rest of your love life
Lately, I have been having to deal with the fact that I can love unconditionally, even though the person who I am linked to in that way wants nothing to do with the emotions of love. At one point in time they expressed that they loved me too, but now its like they are hiding from their true feelings to avoid dealing with reality.

This community is a place for me to be able to express my journey through this, as well as to allow others to commence or continue their own journey of similar proportions.

They say life sucks, but I would say loving sucks harder. So how do you cope?
