1.) Like the time I was trying to pretend I was tougher than I am and I told my lover I didn't need anyone to take care of me and he said but I want to take care of you and that's when it happened. That's when everything inside of me softened and I realized his love was panoramic. 2.) His love is panoramic. 3.) And the time I thought I had been broken but it turned out I'd only been mistaken. 4.) Connect the dots. 5.) Every time I play connect the dots I draw pictures I never could have made without all those other steps showing me the way. 6.) My lover's body is a gift between midnight and the dawn. A space where we do not need light in order to find each other. 7.) Stay there. Stay right where you are and let everything around you change. You will change too. But it will be without having to be wrestled to the ground. 8.) Every moment is a lesson in evolution. 9.) My lover's hands are a lesson in holding on. 10.) The only way to defy gravity is to believe in it. Believe in it with all your heart and atrophy will not affect your bones. 11.) Yesterday my friend asked me for advice on men but what could I tell her? My lover is a lesson in warm affection and my coldest former flame was a lesson in chiropractics. 12.) Never chase a man whose head is two inches ahead of his body. It means he lives in the past. 13.) And if someone tells you they will never be good enough for you you should believe them because why would anybody make up a thing like that? 14.) That is all the advice I have. 15.) Connect the dots. 16.) My lover's love is panoramic. 17.) People tell us who they are all the time. We just have to listen. 18.) Love is as love does. 19.) We do. 20.) We are. 21.) And when my lover puts his hands over my eyes and then takes his hands away I am always somewhere new. 22.) Nothing lasts very long. Not even sadness. 23.) How could I have not seen this before? 24.) Trust me when I say that even the most circuitous route will turn into a clear image in the end. 25.) We all need to take care of each other. 26.) My lover's love is panoramic.

  1. Broken or mistaken, we humans remain brilliant imperfection: As to our atrophy, such is the way of all creation; by connecting the dots, or painting by numbers, some creative minds beyond the mundane lines will wonder; still wasting away, in life, in love, desiring, dreaming some better solution; but, all things, in all ways, and all times, become as we are; we are the panorama, we end where we begin, in life and love - beyond this, there is no need of anything, nor any absolution. However, as long as there is a love story to tell, this world will need a good story teller, one to open those closed windows of our souls, making us wonder, "23.) How could I have not seen this before?" -
    I have boarded up and bricked closed the windows and doors to my heart of hearts seeking the solace of darkness but your penetrating psalms of love as light break through and shine - compelling me to come and see what life and love and dreams can be.
    Thank You,
    Always Yours, SW
