some other times…

Sometimes…
I like zero tolerance.
I like very little room for error.
I like hard and fast rules.

But other times…
I like a soft place to land.
I like a little space to thrash around.
I like tolerance that is all-encompassing.

Sometimes…
I like impact that makes me scream.
I like hair-pulling that makes me cry.
I like words that make me feel less (more) than human.

Other times…
I like the hits a bit lighter, more sensory.
I like soft tickles that send me to sleep.
I like words that comfort and soothe.

Sometimes…
I like to handle it all myself.
I like to function in my own way, on my own time.
I like to be a strong girl needing no-one.

Other times…
I like to be taken by the wrist and told exactly what to do.
I like to not have to use my brain at all.
I like to be weak and little and a girl full of need.

Sometimes…
I like talking things out.
I like being transparent and open.
I like hiding being out of the question.

Other times…
I like my silence.
I like to stay inside my head.
I like being a bit of a mystery.

Sometimes…
I like being His.
I like that He owns me.
I like that this life is Ours.

Other times…
I like being His (even though).
I like that He owns me (despite the chaos I undoubtedly am).
I like that this life is Ours (through thick and thin, because we make it so).

two songs, on a tuesday

This song is gorgeous, and it gets me in the feels.

Aftermath by Muse

War is all around
I’m growing tired of fighting
I’ve been drained
And I can’t hide it
But I have strength for you
You’re all that’s real anymore
I am coming home now
I need your comfort

From this moment
From this moment
You will never be alone
We’re bound together
Now and forever
The loneliness has gone

States are crumbling
Walls are rising high again
It’s no place for the faint-hearted
But my heart is strong
Because now I know where I belong
It’s you and I against the world
We are free

From this moment
From this moment
You will never be alone
We’re bound together
Now and forever
The loneliness has gone
We’ve gone against the tide
All we have is each other now
I’m coming home now
I need your comfort

From this moment
From this moment
You will never be alone
We’re bound together
Now and forever
The loneliness has gone

We’re bound together
Now and forever
Loneliness has gone

And this song, well it gets me in COMPLETELY different feels… 😉

Bedroom Hymns by Florence + The Machine

This is as good a place to fall as any
We’ll build our alter here
Make me your Maria
I’m already on my knees

You had Jesus on your breath
And I caught him in mine
Sweating our confessions
The undone and the divine

‘Cause this is his body
This is his love
Such selfish prayers
And I can’t get enough

Oh, woah, woah, oh
Oh, whoa, whoa, yeah

Spilled milk tears,
I did this for you
Spilling over the idol
The black and the blue

The sweetest submission
Drinking it in
The wine, the women, the bedroom hymns

‘Cause this is his body
This is his love
Such selfish prayers and I can’t get enough

Oh, woah, woah, oh
Whoa, whoa, yeah
I can’t get enough

I’m not here looking for absolution
Because I found myself an old solution
I’m not here looking for absolution
Because I found myself an old solution

This is his body
This is his love
Such selfish prayers, I can’t get enough

This is his body
This is his love
Such selfish prayers, I can’t get enough
Whoa, whoa, yeah
I can’t get enough
Whoa, whoa, yeah
I can’t get enough
Whoa, whoa, yeah

 

Music always says it better! Enjoy!!
