That! Is My Answer

Someone once reached an uncharted part of me…
Only one time …


Someone dived deeply into my needs and said I will fight for them. I will be the salve that fills them.

I can do that.  I will do that – because you are so fucking worth it.


It was that –  that ignited a visceral, cellular level response revealing a deeply buried gratitude effervescing in complete joy to the surface of my being.  For him.

It would take that to have me soaring after eagles again.
It’s what separates punks from the men,
The heroes from the ... weak.
It takes that for me to feel loved,
And safe,
And secure.

It’s that…
that I want
and need…
It was always,


Why would I settle for anything else, ever again?
Settle for what?

Nothing, less than – that.


The end of tributes… I lay down tobacco today to finish the healing.

About Blog Woman!!!

Once in a while I can rock a thought. I simply believe in what I stand up for. I'd most like people to know that surviving the trials of mountains and monsters is more than resilience - it’s a path to your destiny. On a mostly weekly basis I throw out a grab-bag of facts, ideas or creativity; like a box of chocolates wrapped in ribbons of occasional profanity.... In other words, it's my party I can fun if I want to. So, waddya say, can we talk?

    Aw, babygirl. Yes, just like MamaMick said, you were always and only meant for the best. I know it’s been hard, but I feel it. Your heart is coming back and it won’t be long before we get your body to catch up. Hold on, sweet sis. ❤

    Hang in there Robyn! i’ll be there by July. Ha! Sorry – I couldn’t resist. Indeed the type of relationship you describe is rare but exists. Well written – I enjoyed it very much. Thank You.

    As an aside Robyn, I did a guest post over at Cordelia’s Mom I’d be honored if you had the time to drop by.

    • Well, if it’s too hard for someone to honestly cherish, and practise loyalty, respect and honesty, well, I can state truthfully, I’d rather be alone.

      and hey, you know I will be there – and here! lol. Thanks for letting me know. And maybe you’ll get here in time for my birthday!! Woo-hoo…

        It is my pleasure It was a joy to read this, a true gift. I recognized myself in your words, which validated a few things I was thinking but had not articulated w/ this kind of clarity (or eloquence). Thank you for letting me find myself in this amazing composition. I look forward to reading more of your work!

    • Yeah! That’s right, dammit! And I deserve a man who will stand up and stand out for me anywhere, anytime – the same as I do for anyone I love! No hiders in the dark for me, thanks very much! Do you think Deadpool is single?

      Aw, thanks, Robert. Have I told you lately that you have a way with words?


  8. Yes, exactly. We respond to those who actually see the real us and who meet the needs we didn’t even know we have.
