What is Intimacy??

      “My friends tell me I have an intimacy problem. But they don’t really know me.”
        Garry Shandling

Intimacy – a close, familiar, and usually affectionate or loving personal relationship in which another person knows detailed knowledge about you and has a deep understanding of your ways and emotions.

What is Intimacy…

We ebb and flow in wanting to be known

We fear that to be exposed

creates a space for our destruction.

Yet we yearn to share who we are with all the world

but we end in holding them at bay.

Few have found this haunted heart

and seen the ways and rounds

To those I open up all the more

even if I want to run and pound

slamming that door seems like it would be

the thing to keep those closest away

but I have found those special few

dont want to stay that way

When hearts are knit together

to untie them cuts the heart

and so to find the intimacy we seek

we must be willing to be cut

every peice of us gets cut and tied knitting us unto another

Its the selfishness of ME ME ME

that says I wont be linking up

but love you see is built within

when hearts are tied together

you find that ME becomes an US

and life is so much sweeter.

PS….Its seems so hard at times to be open with eachother…but all that changes when you are willing to be  open with yourself!!
