What is Marrage?
Its Trust and Faith that your partner is always
going to be there for you. Not always agreeing with what you are
doing or saying, but being next to you and supporting your endeavors,
trials, celebrations and dark times.
It's the holding and closeness while you look
through each others eyes into each others souls and seeing the
fragile person who depends on your love and compassion.
It's the sexual excitement of experimentation,
the fun of egging each other to push the physical envelope and the
complete oneness and intimacy that is generated from sharing all of
your most private thoughts and fantasies.
Its feeling like the two of you can take on the
world as long as you have each other, and using that oneness to get
you through times when it feels like one of you have nothing left to give.
Its listening, listening and listening again.
And being able to do it without inserting your judgements.
Its feeling like you really want to run away and
never have to deal with them again.
Its wanting to be able to help your partner be
the best that they can be. With a gentle touch meant to calm,
or a nudge meant to incite.
It is a small flower growing in a crack of
cement: an acorn becming a mighty oak.
Its wondering how you ever ended up like this,
and what would have happened if you did not meet him.
Its laughing at the same jokes, just because he
enjoys it so much
Iis putting all of your trust in thier hands
and the hurt that goes along with that when you find out that
they are human.
Its learning to love all of those little things
that bothered you before
Its defending thier honor and never letting
anyone get between the two of you
Its knowing that you will always have a
hand to hold, Arms to protect you, and someone who thinks that you
are the best thing in the whole world.
It's feeling respected and cherished.
Its being the protector, the keeper of the
flame, and willing to forgive and forget just because the world would
not feel right without them.
Its being the best you can be, because the other
deserves the best that you can give.
Its going to therapy for 15 years, well because
damn it, your not going to give up on him and he's not going to give
up on you.
Its that feeling of thrill deep inside whenever
they walk into a room.
Its pride, and empathy and love that you have
for someone else before yourself.
Its knowing that everything, no matter how bad,
can be made less painful by lying in each others arms.
