Letters of Love and Respect

A Wounded Heart's Redemption

Seldom am I at a loss for words;

My emotions always so well controlled,

Impossible almost to reach the depths of my heart.


But,

Since I've met you,

I've come to realize...


There is someone who can bring back my smile,

There is someone who makes this life I live worthwhile;

Someone who shares the same goals,

Has the same needs,

The same burning desires;

Someone who, at times, takes me to my knees.


I'm not easily humbled,

Learned early on to keep myself hidden away...


Battered and beaten,

My heart rests inside;

I, the Protector, struggle to keep it safely restrained.

I can't stand another head-on collision,

Can't bear the pain of having it all ripped apart again.


When I met you,

I instantly felt safe;

I didn't have to wear a mask,

Although haunted still by a torturous past.


In a lot of ways, you've touched my heart,

Your smile fills the world with your art;

Never have I felt such a sense of completion,

You have become my heart's redemption...


I had buried it all away,

When people said the horrible things that they had to say;

But, in one night, it all fell away,

My heart was touched in mysterious ways.


I'll always love you for the amazing person you are,

Feel blessed for having you in my life even for a short while.


-Windy Grace Mason

A Dedication

An Unconditional Love for the Darkest Soul I Ever Met

I'm forever changing,
Flowing with the wavez that others create;
But I will not drown,
For I can swim...
Try as hard as you like,
I will not let you win.

I've been through a lot,
Felt all your pain;
I have no clue what it is that you expect to gain...

Men that batter women leave behind a big mess,
But watch me now;
Because I will pass all these tests...
Bend me, break me,
Try to mold me into something I'm not;
It doesn't matter because the real me will alwayz come out on top.

I'll roll with your punches, baby,
Love you until I draw my last breath...
You can't beat it out of me,
Even though you think you must.

A painful life may have been my fate,
But when I die, no one can ever say that I waz fake.

Your poems are beautiful. I know the guy you have tagged in this one. You may or may not be aware, but he is a nice guy who happens to be schizophrenic and changes when he goes off his meds (the ones he says is for something else). He seems to affect every girl the way you were affected in this poem and makes a habit of breaking hearts with his delusions. He cannot help it as he is only living out the reality in his head. Anyway, keep up the writing. You have an amazing gift.

Thank you so very much, livingsoul :) It doesn't surprise me... I tend to attract manic depressives, schizophrenics and guys with a wide array of other personality disorders. He is a very nice guy, but comes and goes... One day he is apologetic over things that happened in the past and wanting to try again. Then, he may not be heard from for weeks or even months. He didn't hang around long enough to tear me down too bad...I've been tore down too many times before for it to be something that I will allow to happen overnight. He does, however, have a knack for breaking through barriers. We maintain a friendship that I do value and I wish him the absolute best in the future. You also seem like a very nice person. Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. Wishing you the best...

Love & Light,

The words in this poem reveal EXACTLY how I personally feel about this person. It is something that cannot be changed by anyone except him personally, if he is even capable of changing my point of view...It's been almost three years now and it hasn't changed yet. However, I may be doing some editing soon. I'm not completely happy with this piece...Social Disaster, you already know the deal ;) I would like to see how he feels about this piece ;)

Love, Light & Peace to All,

Causticbelt,

No thanks are needed, honey. I write to express my innermost thoughts and feelings, as you well know. There are a lot of parts of this piece that I had edited out due to certain circumstances. However, those parts really need to be filled back in to do it justice. I will be working on putting it back together in the coming week. I'm glad you like it...That means a lot to me. It is a gift, now more than ever, in this world to have such a strong connection with someone that you can truly say that you know that person. It's one thing to have met, shared time and went separate ways. It is a completely different ballgame when you connect on a level that brings peace and comfort to the both of you to the point that you can truly relax around one another and let go of your guard...This is something that I almost never do with anyone. In our situation, it was automatic, instantanious even. Such things are unheard of in the world today. People don't care enough about one another anymore or, at the least, do not take the time to truly know the other. Maybe they think they have better things to do. My hope is for this poem to show people just how special this type of connection is and prove that it lasts a lifetime even with ups and downs and periods of separation. You know my heart better than anyone, Causticbelt. You know how strong its beat is even though the doctors say something is wrong with it. Yes, every part of me marches to the beat of a different drum and my heart follows suit. I find absolutely nothing wrong with that. It's me. In the same respect, regardless what anyone says, you are one in the same...You march to the beat of your own drum and I find absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, with the way we are connected, I would have to say that we together create beautiful music. Maybe we are the only ones who can hear it; but that's okay, too. With the love and respect that we share, I embrace every little thing about you. You, too, will always have my heart. Your heart is a big deal to me. You already know this so don't downplay your worth. You know better than to try that with me. As the saying goes, "You can't mean everything to everyone, but you can mean the world to someONE." That seat is already taken...FOREVER.

Love Always,

Windy Grace
