Give me nothing - Sweet nothing

I ask for nothing from you that I can hold in my hands. I ask for nothing that I can physically see. I do not want promises of a future that is not yours to give. You need not use me as an excuse to dive into the things that would drain you and ultimately draw you away from me. I have no tangible need that has to be filled. Fight the natural response to add pressure to your life in honor of me. It is a wolf in sheep's clothing. I am not standing here before you because of what you can give me. I have more than I need. Do not look at where you are in life with fear of what a merge would force you to change or give up. I have not asked for a merge. Do not look at your life and see it as too little for me or unworthy of me. I get to decide the measure of your worth and it is only my interpretation that matters in my decisions. My caresses are not bought by your possessions or your future goals. They are not limited by your insecurities or by how you define yourself. My caresses are won by your spirit, not by your words but by your essence.

I ask you for nothing, sweet nothing. I take from you all the unseen. I pour into you the unseen in me. I will take the pure, the true, and all which can not be touched by human hands. I will reveal much of my true self (tho not all) and play in the passion of your heart, the creativity of your mind, and the strength and stamina of your body. I will bathe myself in our combined dew. I will engulf and suffocate all the negative and all that plagues you, even if just while I am in your presence. I will surround you with my light and embrace your light. I will feed into your spirit. I may not be your eternal love story, tho your emotion may tell you differently. I can not see that far ahead. I may only be the guide, the teacher, the near-perfect example of what you should have and what you should look for in your future. The proof that peace, happiness, and love exist without expectation, without condition. I follow the flow into your life. I have the potential to fade. Enjoy the babbling brook with me. Enjoy the beautiful oasis created. Swim with me in my waters. Lock into me as we create our dance of balance. Swim our circle of balance and trust. Bathe in the colors reflected within. All of nature is mirrored here. Take in the sights, the sounds, and the scents. Get lost here with me, for the current flows and the time will come where I will be carried away from you by it. Do not build your walls. Do not tire yourself in construction of a dam aimed at stopping inevitable, stopping the current and its natural flow. It causes me to fade. It will cause us to fade. The waters would be still for us. Our movement and sound would fade. The nature outside of our pool, once fed by our waters, would wilt. Trust in the flow. Dance with me, swim our circle of balance and trust. Be carried with me until our rivers part. Then flow, content and satisfied with the time that we were given with no regret for what we gave. I ask you for nothing - sweet nothing.

Good evening my lovely Lissette from lake erie time ontario canada 9:02pm

I certainly think this is a title to die for and I love how you have written it like a short story in a poetic context.

When you write like this too, in this style, you are all consuming and when I read this passage the only thing I could hear was my heart beating and nothing else mattered. You took me there and when that happens it's a magical moment indeed for both writer and reader.

Sending you most sincere warm wishes from Colin and his cats

Hi Colin and the cats. It sounds like a jazzy band name, I love it! I so appreciate you loving my written voice, my written persona. I want to consume. I want to be the only thing that exists. Its dangerous, I think. Lol! I am so happy that you allow me to take you away. It is my honor and my pleasure. Thank you so much!

I am having trouble with my hub pages tho. I have to play seek n find to actually read my comments.

Oh Lissette I just had to re-visit this classic - one of my favorites of all time at the Hub I must say and so chock full of raw, passionate and intense emotion packed into these hallowed words - and yes I love the way you display them in a short story format - it doesen't look like poetry but yet it is - and it isn't exactly a short story - but the narrative quality in the way it was written makes it look and feel so ......

As always it's so nice to connect with you and I am sending you my warmest wishes and good energy from Colin and his cats Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel from rain soaked lake erie time 7:36pm ontario canada (well it could still be snow at this time of year)

Have you always thought like this or was it a hard lesson you learned? How can you only be satisfied with only being the near perfect example of what he should look for in his future? This mentality of yours fascinates me, because we are like polar opposites.

Hello Philly. Yes. I have always been the same in my center tho some things took time to learn and express. They were not hard lessons. I just had to learn that the ways that we are taught didn't suit me. How can I only be satisfied... What a convo starter. There is not a lot of goodness in the world. There is a lot of hurt, insincerity, insecurity, many people are lost, they take advantage of each other, and victimize each other. They have a misconception of what love is and how it acts. It has contributed to a huge loss of faith. I share goodness without expectation. I restore and I want nothing in return. I show the few people are drawn to me what it is to be accepted and how love acts on different levels. I challenge people to see that tho rare, it exists and should be sought out but that doesn't make me the one since I don't believe in the one or forever.

I appreciate your fascination and love the time you spend on reading and commenting. Being unique means you stand alone, I am accustomed, everyone is polar... no worries :)
