Act Of Love ~ Love, Sex And Poetry

Act Of Love ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

Standing in
Naked vulnerability
Before you
You see me
The real me
You see
The woman
I hide from others
You see
The woman
Who loves you
You see
The woman
Who touches
Your heart
The deepest
The woman
Who you share
Words and feelings
In a glance of an eye
But you also see
Our love & affection
For each other
Needs to be
Protected and
Shielded from the
View of those
Around us
In naked vulnerability
I stand before you
And allow you
To see and know
The depths
Of love
I hold
For you
It breaks open
My heart
In exposed
Awareness
To our joint
Spiritual energy
That is
Always below
The surface
But I ensure
It's viewable
To you
So you know
The truth
I tell you
How I feel
So you
Always know that
What I hide
From others
Will not be
Hidden from you
I will always
Show you
Truth
I will always
Stand in love
And honesty
Before you
So you trust
My words
And believe
In me
You must know
I only pretend
To not care
To protect us
Protect you
Protect myself
From the
Negative judgmental
Energies that
Surrounds us
I will never
Allow them
To stand between
The love I have
In my heart
For you
And the love
You deserve
Regardless of
Our circumstance
And commitments
I will not allow
The people around you
To block
The love
I offer you
Freely
Unconditionally
Without expectations
In naked vulnerability
You will always
Know my truth
I show you
Truth and vulnerability
As an act of love
I said I miss you
Because
It is my truth
And telling you it
Was my
Act of love

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately

ART BY: Tony Salerno ~ "Aradia"

NOTE:

The below commentary goes with this poem and served as the inspiration. It was written first as just my journal entry and a way for me to collect my thoughts. I later pulled it into a prose. As Mercury is in Retrograde, I was unsure I wanted to post this as I know this can be a time of miscommunication. I was worried what I wrote below would be misinterpreted so I was hestitant. So instead I rewrote it to be clear that an act of love was to maintain truth and clarity.
—————-

In recent months I've experienced heightened intuition and self awareness. This not only gives me insights into the motives of those who surround me but also has been showing me how my words and actions can be used or interpreted by others. I guess I would say I've had more “situational awareness”.

In this new awareness, I've become more cautious and careful with whom I expose myself to not only personally and professionally. I've dealt with busybodies taking shots at me or gossiping about me for a long time. Instead of confronting it and acknowledging it, I've learned to just completely disengage from anyone harboring those lower spiritual energies towards me. That is what gossip, negative talk, judgment is; It's lower spiritual energy. I have no need or desire to prove myself right, win them over or help them to see the negative karma attached to their actions/judgments. I also decided to just stand back allow them take their shots. I just completely ignore it and love authentically.

As I tune into my intuition for guidance, their actions and gossip feel like jealousy to me. It feels like certain folks are jealous of me and any closeness I may share with someone so they run interference between us. With this new awareness,I decided it was best that I do not put any bullets in their hands. With that said, I make every effort to ensure the folks who truly care about me know the truth of my feelings for them.

I find it necessary to practice self awareness as well as situational awareness in the workplace as well as in life. I've maintain a distance from lower, sometimes immature, energies to set myself free and give myself space to grow. No hard feelings. I just see those folks don't hold the best intentions for me and are more concerns about taking shots at me than befriending me. That's 100% the truth. It's ok. Even though they often hurt my feelings, I no longer let them affect me. They walk their path; I walk my own. I send them love and light but I also learned to keep my distance.

There's a reason why I remain distant publicly. There is also a reason why I make an effort to ensure those I trust, and even love, know the truth. I am honoring my truth while also trying to protect myself and those I love from the lower negative energies that often surround us. It's not always easy to be on my guard all the time but I do it because I won't feed them information. It's a practice of self protection. Hopefully, those who care about me do not feed them bullets to use against me either.

Some say they don't understand why I keep to myself and stay completely disengaged. I guess it's hard to see the consequences associated with one's own negativity towards me. I am very sesnsitive and intuitive. I read people well and understand their unspoken motives. I see through lies. That is not paranoia. It is fact and I am merely trying to protect myself and someone I love from lower negative spiritual energy. I choose to focus on honoring my truth, being honest with those I trust and love and on growing personally and spiritually. That is what's important to me.

Put yourself in my shoes, see what I see and feel what I feel. You'll know it's the truth…
