More than telling me
I will need you to show me
You need me around
Daily Haiku on Love- Tyler Knott Gregson
Words, words, beautiful words. Words that slip in your ears and sink in to your brain with a promise and a kiss. But they are simply this… words. I need more than just a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation, that functions as a principal carrier of meaning. Because it is just that, a meaning that means nothing if it is not consequently followed by the action for which would make it truth.
Many times we fall in love with the words that escape the lips of another. The shell of this person seems so perfect, a perfect package of attractive, successful, charming, and exactly what we need. The combination of letters that they compile together to form the promises and expectations only make them seem all the more. By the time you realize that you are wrapped up in words, it is almost always too late to run without getting hurt, because you have allowed the string of syllables to convince you that you are happy.
But if you take a step back, you can see all the things that were broken from the beginning
My friend said it eloquently in her post here: http://arobison3.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/you-miss-him/
The things that we must realize in our own search for happiness and love is simply put, mean what you say, do what you say you will do. Prove yourself to the one you love and protect yourself from the short comings of others. Stop falling for empty promises and words that fall short of meeting your expectations. Stop letting someone talk their way out of losing you. Stop letting someone talk their way in to your heart if they are not willing or able to show you that they need you around.
