Homeless Love

"Anytime someone proves that they’re not safe to love, and you have the unfinished business of loving them anyway, the torment that you feel is the homelessness of your love." - T.D. Jakes

Whoa. That hit home *hard*. There’s a man to whom that applies — even now, two years later — and, of course, my messed up family who abandoned me in favor of my abuser.

It makes so much sense. I’ve never heard anyone describe it that way, but it hits the nail on the head.

I wish a parent had taught me this. Instead, I’m still learning. The hard way.

So true …

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you, dear

Going through my playlists on YouTube. There’s one that I set up for CM (aka “him”) … Our time together feels so long ago now … listening to these songs takes me right back to July 2011 when it all began … When he entered my life like a thunderclap, shaking my whole world. I’ve never loved a man like I loved him.

I see I’m using the past tense: “loved.” But let’s be honest: if he knocked on my door right now, my heart would fly right out of my chest all over again. Love like that is never truly over.

Happy 2nd Anniversary, Max. I can’t believe it’s already been two years since I adopted this sweet boy from the Humane Society. 

I couldn’t ask for a better friend. :) xo
