All Control My Tides | 2.14.21
Happy Valentines Day!
Valentines Day today, odd holiday but any excuse to give the people I love more love, I’ll take. I don’t buy into the chocolate and bouquet thing, I don’t think it necessary to sprinkle rose petals on the surface of all things, I just think it beautiful to use a day dedicated to the display of love, For love. For me, I have someone that deserves this love, you all know this as I probably talk it into the damn ground, but I cannot help it, I am proud of the love we’ve built, I am proud of the way she controls the tides in me. What a thing this is, the realization and abandonment of certain levels of control, the understanding that the heart of another is the moon to the sea in you.
For those of you who do have someone that this day makes you want to celebrate with, Do so. Drop any cynicism or shame you may feel for this silly day, and just embrace it in your own unique and personal way. Don’t say it with snark or side-eye, just use today as a way to add extra love into the love you’ve been working on. For those of you who do not have someone you wish to celebrate this day, use it to celebrate the love you have for yourself. Treat yourself to something that seems excess or superfluous, pamper yourself in some tiny way, offer words of encouragement to the mirror, hell, write yourself a love letter. Why not? Life is short, love is all, let it be.
And, if no one else says it today for some ridiculous reason (pandemics suck), I’ll say it first: I love you, so much.
Phases of the moon,
the many phases of you,
all control my tides.
