“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” —Pablo Neruda
Aww the romance in this quote is sweet. It’s got the feel of a deep connection only lived out in fantasies. Some fantasies give us a healthy hope for the future. They’re great as long as we don’t let expectation kill our reality. Some might question whether fantasy is our true reality. I mean it’s a thoughtful question. Where do we go when we sleep? Another good one. Anyways point being, deep connection and intimacy are both really nice things.

For me, I always feel it. Maybe it comes from my years of unwarranted loneliness. When I write, it feels like it comes from the soul. When I started here, I was horribly depressed. I wrote about love because it’s what I missed most. I was conflicted because I couldn’t separate my feelings from something derived from something so special. Poetry is different than fiction. Still, I have trouble finishing my main work because I don’t want to put my characters through the tragedy that I’ve devised for them.
I, fortunately, have advisors. They know me and the WordPress community. They often give me a heads up on how I’m doing. It helps having support!

I remember killing my first character lol It cried like a baby. I can relate to not wanting to put characters through tragedy. Especially when I devised it lol. Advisors are amazing! I love my writing community!
