Love is Not About Ownership

One of the greatest things I have learned in the course of my entanglement with the Sailor, is that true intimacy, and anything even resembling love, of any quality or depth, in any kind of relationship, cannot, absolutely cannot, be about ownership, or the expectation of filling other’s voids, needs, even.
~Marcela.

His language is a little more flowery than I am generally fond of, but he was a very, very wise man, I’ve been reading him since I was a kid, but only relatively recently, come to appreciate, understand, his teachings:

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond[age] of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”
-Khalil Gibran

The Twelve Days of Crass-mess (12)

My best brain power and most of my energy have to be reserved for work 
these days so the writing in this little piece of fun hasn't been where 
I would like it to be, but all my very best LOVE goes out to all of you. 
The intent, from the start, has been about this day, day 12, all of you. 
Happy whatever you celebrate, or don't, and thanks, for hanging tough. 
Some days it feels like I just don't want to, can't, anymore, but you, 
this bunch, keep me taking the next step, trying the next drug, 
doing my best not to fall deeper into the black hole I have been clawing 
my way out of for the past year. Love,
~Marcela.
