Let Love In Slowly

“I let love in blindly, fiercely, and without the slightest regard toward my capacity for the force that was freely flowing into me.

This past phase of inhibition didn’t lead to a blissed-out state of love-induced euphoria, or cause my heart to swell up like a balloon and allow me to float my way through life—it left me weakened, vulnerable, and completely unaware that I was letting in all the wrong kinds of love.”

“Soul Meets Body” by Death Cab for Cutie

“And I do believe it’s true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you

And the end is unknown
But I think I’m ready
As long as you’re with me”

They say the best way to let go is to set an intention.  For as much as I know I should let go of you… I don’t think I can.
