"I just want you close, where you can stay forever..."

So, Alicia has to say it for me because I have no words to describe last night. I did not want to let go. Before I go on, let me just say that there was no sex, which in it self is an enormous achievement for me....

It started a few weeks ago at a club where I met this guy (let's call him Brooklyn). My friends introduced us, but he seemed pre-occupied, as he was the host of the party. I left the club without getting any further indication of his attraction towards me. I said, "oh well" and the idea of him was placed in the corner of my mind. Last week my friends and I attended a group discussion where I saw Brooklyn again. This time his attention was on me and mine on him. Throughout the meeting we exchanged flirtatious comments and prolonged eye contact. Unfortunately, we parted ways again without exchanging information. From that day, I said, "I want him." Well, they say if you put things out into the universe they start to happen and sure enough I got a myspace message from Brooklyn requesting me as a friend. (Gotta love that damn myspace, No one can hide) After a couple of days of emails we decided to meet, which brings me to last night.

What can I say, without sounding like the helplessly romantic cancer that I am....Hmmmm. We talked...and talked...and talked...Communication opens the doors to so much. Our conversation was so empowering and uplifting. We talked about life. We talked our goals, our dreams, our ideas. We talked over wine. We talked by candle light. We talked listening to Chrisette Michele. We talked with smiles on our faces. We talked in between kisses. Well you get the idea.....We talked!!! All night long, until we fell asleep in each others arms. I wish you could feel the emotion and connection. I can only hope that it is real. Don't worry, I am not deleting accounts yet (I've done that b4). I am going to play this one out slowly. I just wanted to share by joy with you. I challenge you all to communicate with your lovers or friends. It is a phenomenal tool that allows relationships to flourish.

...And so it goes

Since dammitt won't do it, jay will. I'm happy for u, jealous, but most of all I'm over it. Like I told x recently, I'll get excited after the 2nd week because these one week love relationships are getting old. Love you but the weekly flings are not a love thing but a lust thing.

To Jay and D:

Love you all and respect your opinion, but "Screw Your Comments" I am going for it.

To Omar:

Thanks for the encouragement. You're the best.

To Water:

The feeling is entirely mutual

bLaQ~n~MiLD said...

(Ok hold up...)

Water, I agree with you that time will reveal the future, however, I believe that every 'journey' begins with more than 'six' steps and a 'rest.'

B, you can say "screw our comments" but I'm just tryna want these words to flow from my mind thru my fingers into this blog to your eyes and permiate your mind. I just wish for your happiness and nothing else. But in your quest for happiness, understand that relationships take time, not intrigue. Conversations by candle light are cool, but the convolutions of ones mind and soul can be masked when witnessed in short spurts. I leave you how I've left you in previous comments...

**TAKE YA TIME WHEN LIKING A GUY. CAUSE IF HE SENSE THAT YA FEELINGS TOO INTENSE, IT'S PIMP OR DIE!!**


~Damnit!

ponoono said...

One Man’s Opinion said...

Congrats, boy. Good for you. Hope it last....sounds like a very sweet connection. Nice to hear a story that doesn't end with "and we f'ed each others brains out". Of course that could always be next weeks post. Peace

Capricorn & Cancer

When Cancer and Capricorn make a love match, it's a celestial pairing of great tenacity and determination. Capricorn, the Sea Goat, is focused on logic, on being down-to-earth and real; Cancer brings a charge of emotional intensity to the relationship. Both hold one another to high standards tempered by an abiding mutual respect. In a Capricorn mate, Cancer finds dedication, and in return Capricorn comes to love Cancer's persistence. These two Signs from opposite sides of the Zodiac can come together to create a very successful and secure connection.

This relationship builds and grows from a strong foundation of material and emotional security. Both Signs can be depended on to make frugal, conservative decisions. It doesn't have to be all solemnity, though, as Cancer can help their hard-working Capricorn lover to relax a little at the end of the day, to take time to enjoy the rewards of all that labor. Cancer will also be the one to polish and preserve the fruits of their shared accomplishments; Cancer is the keeper of nostalgia and cherished memories and possessions. Capricorn moves Cancer toward achievement and keeps in check their Crab-like tendencies, enlightening Cancer to the more important matters of the world outside their own easily bruised heart. This relationship succeeds if there is an ironclad commitment and a stable, traditional home environment.

The Moon (Emotion) rules Cancer, and Saturn (Karma) rules Capricorn. The Moon is a warm, feminine energy, and Saturn a cold masculine energy. The Moon is emotional and nurturing; it is about maternal care giving and intuition, both of which become vital to Cancer. Saturn practices integrity and discipline to achieve goals. A Cancer love mate can show their serious Capricorn companion how to enjoy life and to appreciate beauty and comfort. Mothering Cancer truly enjoys smoothing over Capricorn's hard edges. Conversely, the Sea Goat can smooth Cancer's ruffled emotional feathers by providing the sort of solid foundation that Cancer desperately craves. Capricorn teaches Cancer to be more disciplined and to go out into the world and strive toward goals.

Cancer is a Water Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Earth Signs focus on possessions, Water Signs on emotion and intuition, but also on beauty and nostalgia. The Cancer-Capricorn love mates like to surround themselves with beautiful things -- a stately home, gorgeous artwork, expensive cars. Their desire to be economically stable and their love of finery ensures that this couple will work hard toward this and other shared goals. This mutual love for fine things keeps them out of arguments about one partner trying to live ostentatiously or beyond their means.

Cancer and Capricorn are Cardinal Signs. Both are initiatory, active and ardent. Though this can be a catalyst for some dynamite conflicts, it can provide Capricorn with an emotional pillar, as Cancer is entirely dedicated to the relationship. Their differing emotional dispositions complement each other well -- Capricorn excels in getting the nitty-gritty business done, and Cancer always steps in when emotional counseling is needed. These Signs will get along well if Capricorn and Cancer allow one another to use their respective individual strengths.

What's the best thing about the Cancer-Capricorn relationship? Their utter dedication to one another and their mutual commitments toward shared goals. Both are lovers of quality and of beautiful, luxurious things, and neither shirks at the idea of a little hard work if that's what it takes (in fact, Capricorn would rather be working than almost anything!). Their shared passions, sense of responsibility and morality make theirs a highly compatible relationship.

I will never stand in the way of LOVE.
This is your experience... embrace it!

When your really in LOVE, then time stands still, and slowing down or moving to fast is all an illusion.

You will know when to take LOVE by the hand, and when to let it go so that you can appreciate it more.

If you ever fall, we will be here to catch you.
And Dee & Jay will tell you, I told you so, lol.

bLaQ~n~MiLD said...

I'm not a cynic Shawn. I would never say "I told you so". Silence is golden and brevity is the soul of wit. LoL

~Damnit!

Jay said...

I would catch you and make sure one foot is on the ground before I said I told you so...lol

B you know how I really feel, I wish you happiness, just make sure you close your eyes lmao (ok only you and I know what I'm talking about...)
