Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

For some love comes and goes, for others it sticks very close to your heart.
Perhaps I feel deeper than most when it comes to emotions, hurt, loss, unrequited love.
People will say, " Love is like the changing of a light bulb, when it burns out just replace it."
They throw me helpful suggestions about how I am my own person, I'm strong, and nobody controls me. How my heart and emotions are my own, not to be trifled with or led by anyone else.
You hear phrases like, "Walk away", "Let It go", "There will be somebody new".
I've come to realize they don't understand how deeply this love abides within me.
My emotions are not to be turned on and off like a light switch as they so easily seem to do.
This love is a part of me, the essence of breath in my lungs, the marrow in my bones... the illumination of my very soul.
If I turn it off then not only it, but I will also cease to exist.
