I’LL ALWAYS TRY TO REACH YOU  

I don’t know where you go 

when you’re away from me.

One minute you’re here 

and the next 

there’s a mile wide wall between us 

built with pebbles and stones 

of misplaced anger and insecurity.

I test the wall’s strength with jokes

and try to chip away at the concrete with

sweet words and a reassuring hand.

WE ARE DIFFERENT BUT ARE WE EQUAL? 

You have shaped me.

I am brash to combat your meekness.

Your strength is so quiet 

I sometimes discredit its perseverance.

Mine is hot and loud.

But there are times the flames 

can dwindle so low

I’m not even sure they’re even there.

Even so, I’ve made sure your silence 

will never be in my library of responses.

Why dependability is the most attractive quality in a man

Now I’m a Taurus girl so security and stability make me weak in the knees but hear me out because I think you’re all about to swoon a little too.

 

A dependable guy just gets better as a relationship progresses. When you first meet him, he responds to your text in a timely manner, shows up to a date at the time he said he would, and doesn’t leave you guessing about how the relationship may be going. 

 

A dependable guy isn’t playing nearly as many games as the average guy in this modern dating app culture. You’re not getting left on read and you don’t have to play the game of who texts who first. You’re already more secure in the connection. You know where you stand because he’s standing steady. 

 

In a relationship, you can depend on him to be there for you emotionally and for him to hold a steady belief in your relationship growing. In a marriage, you can depend on him to be a partner in taking care of the household and be a stand up father to your kids. 

 

A dependable guy will be there physically when he says he will and he’ll be there for you emotionally when you need him to be. That feeling of security in a relationship immediately releases a load of stress. Less stress in a relationship helps you stay in sync and strive together in harmony. 

 

WILLPOWER

I know you’re going through trying times right now.

There is a mountain of hardships you’ve had to overcome.

Death, loss, and failure haunt you this year.

 

I wish I could take some of this burden from you 

but just know I’m right beside you with a gentle hand.

 

I know it’s a lot to ask but 

I need you to fight through this heartache.

 

Dig your hands and boots into crevices of this rock

and determine with all of your strength 

that you will overcome this valley in your life.

 

You’ve done it before and you can do it again.

Days when your world’s on a tilt

I take it all so personally

Can’t seem to let the wrong words go

I just want to stay in bed all day

Shut the blinds and close out the world

Call in sick to work

Think about texting my selfish ex.

I’m just having one of those days

where I’m grinding my teeth

just to make it through.
