woman-2610972_960_720 (1)He dressed my naked body in gold when all I craved for were his kisses,

bathed me in diamonds when all I thirsted for was the taste of his skin,

placed a ruby on my finger when all I was aching for was to feel his grip on my lustful hips.

And I…drunk of too much glitter…high on sparkles and shining stones…I gave myself.

And he…delighted by this easy pray, aroused by the sweet agony of a fresh new capture, he lied.

That diamonds are forever.

And gold is never broken.

And ruby stones stay perfect. An eternity.

But then again, my heart was craving for a lover’s kiss and lust became an agonizing desire for more. And then again, my restless hands explored his empty side of bed, and sinful fantasies occupied the lonely fields of my body. Calling his name, screaming in pleasures I never should have known…but only darkness responded.

It gave me a sense of fulfillment. It took away my peace. It broke my innocence.

So here am I, shamelessly exposed, without my towers of gold. I lay here, my love, tired of all the dancing. Tired of fooling my own heart. It rained with tears, can’t you feel them burning on your skin?

Come near me, love, forgive me once again, I broke the ruby stone. I crushed the diamonds and even gold is rusty. My love for you remained my only treasure. 

Make it yours.

  1. I’m glad!! I also learnt from your profile that you’re a psychologist. It’s really wonderful that you see your clients as heroes. Having suffered from Anxiety Disorders for quite some years, I can say you’re a gem to your clients! My best wishes, see you around! 🙂

      2. Here is a verse about Godly love. I hope you will like it, as I do.
        Genesis 29:20
        New Century Version
        20 So Jacob worked for Laban seven years so he could marry Rachel. But they seemed like just a few days to him because he loved Rachel very much.

      3. I love it! And I believe this is the right kind of love, the one that God wants us to embrace completely.

      2. Here is an example of something that I write everyday. I can put these in your comments, or on your contact block. These short scriptures will help you to understand more about my teachings.
        “…This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11). See Revelation 19:11-21.
