Your definition of love

This is a vaguely entry lazy because I am relying, as I so often do, on music and lyrics to indicate what is currently going through my head on a particular subject.

Soma, all on its own, is my perfect definition of love. How I love, how I have been loved, how I continue to love. All too often, I am perfectly at ease giving my heart away at a moment's notice to whomever, or whatever, has its hands outstretched. It's gotten me into trouble, painful trouble, in the past and yet- I am still totally incapable of not acting in that manner.

I fall in love a thousand times a day, whether its with a pretty face or the perfect fountain soda or Timothy lying on the floor with his wee head resting on a pile of fabric. My heart is pulled from my chest, in pieces. I give it away. Sometimes, I get it back. Sometimes, it's treated with care.

My relationship with the Engineer has done much to teach me about how to comport myself in the affairs of romantic love, something I have never been any good at. I've needed to learn silence and grace, patience, compassion, compromise. I've learned that love need not be something all encompassing, a fiery explosion which consumes all in its path. The fires still burn, but they are banked now and do not run wild.

I'm still learning that this is ok.
