Fierce Love

You deserve to be loved by a man who knows how to love hard.

A man who looks at you like you are made of magic. The kind of shimmering magic that you feel when you are standing knee deep in Balinese water and the blue-glowing phosphorescence whisks about your feet after midnight—a beach-side bonfire roaring 20 feet behind you.

A man who prefers date nights to consist of you, a fireplace, little to no clothing and the kind of soul-f***ing that happens when your limbs are intertwined and the depth of your conversation becomes the entertainment for the night.

A man who wants to know your fears, worries, insecurities, phobias, and doubts, and wants even more to love you through every last one of them. Never judge you it make you ever apologise for being who you are.

A man who loves you fiercely, for who you are at your beautiful core, his prized lioness whom he protects with his last roar.

A man who prefers you at seven a.m. with eyes that only open halfway and strands of hair stuck to your bottom lip, even though you aren’t a morning person. A man who loves you before, during, and after your morning coffee—regardless of whether or not you’ve fussed over yourself in a mirror that day. A man who sees you dishevelled after a gym session and says – ” has anyone ever told u how beautiful you are “

A man who rests his jawline on your chest and melts into you more than you ever thought a human being could possibly melt.

A man who worships you and loves you deeply. A man who knows what’s your worth and thinks you are division one.

On the days when his love seems too deep, too permeating, too how-do-I-even-deserve-this-kind-of-love to be true, he is right there to remind you why you 1,000 percent deserve every last drop. A man who knows what you can offer him. A man who understands your crazy and basks in it. A man whose so lost in your words and stories he never gets bored after 6 hours. Or 10. Or a lifetime.

Because he can’t not love you. Because it’s easy. Because it’s you.

Be with a man who is there for all of the “what-if’s” of life. What if I’m grumpy? What if my parents are mean to him one day? What if I lose 10 pounds? What if I gain 30 pounds? What if I lose my job? What if I temporarily lose my spark in life? What if I forget who I am? What if I throw a (paper) plate at him when I’m upset? What if I act irrational? What if u accidentally screw up?

Be with a man who will be there, through all of the inevitable speed bumps of life.

A man who lovingly listens to how your day went; genuinely interested and knows exactly when to steer you away from your own stormy seas when life’s pressures pile up in too big of a mountain for you to climb on your own. To carry your burdens on his back and push u up that treacherous mountain upto peak.

A man who is there to remind you, that yes you are allowed to feel that way. Who is also there to mirror you when your thoughts are too disconnected from reality and you might be causing yourself harm by dwelling in your stories. To show u the light when you are in a space of darkness.

A man who rubs your feet, or slow dances with you, or cracks a perfectly timed joke to get you out of your anxious head and back into your body. A man who remembers you first thing in the morning and the last thing before he shuts his eyes.

A man who understands that love is shown through the little things. Small actions and gestures that warm the heart. A man who eggs you on at every victory and makes you grow in a sacred safe place.

A man who does the dishes or cleans up the bed after notorious love making not as a martyr, but as someone who sees organizing your environment as an act of love in itself. A man who fills up your car’s gas tank because he knows how much you dislike doing it. A man who leaves 10-word love notes for you to find scattered throughout your life—and not because it’s Valentine’s Day, but just because it’s Monday.

A man who isn’t really that interested in seeing your new shade of lipstick because he would rather feel his lips stick to yours when he buys you the new hot favourite red shade he spots at the billboards.

And when the tough times inevitably roll through your shared lives, make sure you find a man who can look deeply into your eyes and say, “We’ve got this. We’re going to make it through. You have nothing to worry about. I’m going hold your hand no matter what. Never letting go babe.

A man who wants nothing more than to assist in the ever-expanding greatness of your life, understanding you have a bigger purpose and he’s there to be your greatest cheerleader. He is not threatened by your successes; he relishes them and feels so proud of your mettle and grit.

He doesn’t get jealous when other people check you out; he knows at a bone-deep level how much of a prize you are. A man who trusts you in a room packed of other men knowing you offer her security and trust and immense unconditional love – She’s never gonna stray coz she’s never gonna get any better.

Be with  a man who loves so hard that it liberates you on every level, you feel free. A man whose love emancipates you from your confines, and makes you believe that anything in life is possible, you feel empowered.

This man will open up your world for you, and you will gladly do the same for him. Mutual love and respect. Two of cups – both cups equally filled to the brim.

Yes, marry a man who loves like this, and you will begin to access a depth of love and self-love that you previously had only read about in epic love stories.

A man whose fierce love makes you feel shielded. A man who covers you with a blanket and kisses yourforehead when you accidentally fall asleep while he talking. You may not be awake but the universe will know that your lad loves you so very fiercely

A man who hugs you harder when you push him away, knowing what yourheart is really saying.

A man who pushes past the ‘it’s nothing’ and screams at you till the cows come home and you open up to him. Sees your quivering lips and the tear filled eyes. Listens. Just listens.

Tells you that you are beautiful. Yes, he told you that yesterday and you don’t get why a woman as fearless and gorgeous as you can dare to think that she isn’t pretty. Remind you anyway, all the time.. Sometimes you forget. Besides, who doesn’t like to be told she looks ravishing by the man she loves the most in the world?

You are complicated.  Yes you know.

Thats your winning trait – that air of mystery, that sense of adventure because you never really knew what was coming, what your life purpose was, what your were searching for.‘You are something else, you don’t belong here. You are division one!’ he said. Loves you with your complications.

Laughs at you, makes fun and said you would look good in a maid uniform and chases you with guilt and  relentless begging till u send him a bikini picture of yourself.

Is with you in your state of drunken stupor – so wanting to kiss you and make it all OK but valiantly kept his word. Worries about you. Indulges you. Tells you for the hundredth time he loves you deeply. Loved you fiercely because there was a mind connection.

Doesn’t make you wonder if he missed you ; the sight of you over the video call  lights up the crevices of his heart with joy, he can’t stop blushing and staring at you like he what’s to eat you up. Doesn’t make another man make me feel special. Doesn’t  make me want to be with another.
