I grew less fierce or friendly

If I were a bit more angelic

If I were a bit more observant

Would I learn the secrets of your heart

Would I learn how to make friends with your art

Love is where we choose to give it

Love is what we choose to make of it

Love is not

afraid of the dark

Love is sometimes

a whisper

not a shout.

Sometimes making friends is not

what love’s about.

Sometimes love’s a self-protective route.

Sometimes love’s a tiger leaping out

        1. Awesome, thanks so much. :)))) β€οΈπŸ™ I still can’t comment on your posts btw. The comment box gets outlined in red, with an exclamation mark, and this is the error message “Sorry – there was a problem posting your comment.” You might have accidentally blocked me somehow and/or it’s just another WP glitch. I had this with another blog-friend too, Nathi. Hers got fixed somehow. WP can be glitchy at times. :)) Anyhow, thanks again, and I hope you have a very lovely day. 🌻 πŸ™πŸ’• xoxoxo

          1. That has been happening to me too! Sometimes I find them in the spam folder. There are also a few people I follow who’s posts I don’t see until days later, even if I’m checking directly on under their profile. Eh, WP gremlins.

    1. Ingrid!! Oh my goodness!!! I am just seeing this now since Jojo put a pingback on this post. How did I not reply to this comment???

I see I did reply to your post though. πŸ˜… Anyway, Thank you so so so much for this award, I was truly honoured. πŸ˜πŸ’›πŸ™ŒπŸ™ Every award sincerely lights up my heart, even if I’m not great at posting them.

    p.s. WP lets me reply directly to the pingback you left, but refuses to show my reply here. So I copy it again above. Hope you will find it somehow. :)) Lots of love. ❀️❀️

    p.p.s. I love that you again tagged this post. Because of that, last night I had a minor epiphany of why I always thought my spirit animal was a tiger. My mom used to call me “running deer.” My dad (whom I adore) always subtly countered that by calling me “tiger.” He thereby perhaps planted that drive in me to fight back or attack. Very grateful to him, and to you now, for reminding me of that. You are the brightbomb. πŸ™πŸ₯°πŸ”†πŸ˜»
