Author Jonell George shares another profound poetry piece…

Currency of Love

Heartbreak risks
Endless transactions
Denominations counted
Making cents out of nonsense
Depositing time
Investing feelings
Not wanting to be short changed
Amount Due: Love…

I Need You to Listen…

I need your input, I can’t make this work on my own…I need you to listen.

I can’t completely open my heart to you if we don’t connect…I need you to listen.

I will shut down and give up if we cannot communicate…I need you to listen.

I need you to understand how your words and actions evoke my emotions…I need you to listen.

My best friend should know the difference between my needs and wants…I need you to listen.

I will not bombard you as soon as you walk in but at some point…I need you to listen.

I’m sexually insatiable and passionate, I need you to match my intensity…I need you to listen.

I want our union to be everlasting, I don’t want to walk away…I need you to listen.

I’ve been attentive with you but at this very moment…I need you to listen.

A successful relationship requires effective communication. Communication is a two-way process; you must share, listen and do both well. Most people are not good listeners which leads to failed communication. Break the cycle…become a great listener.

Introducing Author Jonell George…

Please join me in digesting the soulful, sensual poetic thoughts of published author Jonell George. Jonell writes about the deepness of love, the turmoil of love and the nurturing of love. Here are a few secrets to help us read deeper into her words.

SNS: What if anything inspires you to write?

Jonell: What inspires me to write is a variety of emotion, visuals and experiences… Letting it out on paper is such a great mental release!

SNS: What is your favorite subject to write about ?

Jonell: I LOVE to write about Love but also being the voice for someone else… Expressing what they are afraid to talk about.

SNS: Do you have a favourite place to create? Favorite kind of music to create to?

Jonell: Not really! I write in my room, while I’m walking in a mall, while I’m at a stoplight… the moment the words start flowing in my mind they have flow into my blackberry or my pen…. Music? Hmmmm Jazz, Slow music, sometimes even hip hop….

CONFLICT RESOLUTION by Author Jonell George

His lack of consideration
Feeds her mental frustration
This leads to many complications
And it’s beyond her imagination
How the break down in communication
Causes cross contamination
Extended arm for the administration
Of a dose of realization
Calming the risk of escalation
He visualizes the illustration
Of her verbalized accusation
Experiences the side affects of cerebral confirmation
That her hearts devastation
Isn’t targeted constipation
Instead its an exclamation
Of her desired love elevation…

Romance…

You know the kind when someone just stares and smiles at you for no particular reason at all. The kind that greets you with the smell of a thoughtful meal, candlelight, “how was your day”, a simple kiss and a warm “let me take those bags for you” after a long tedious day. After dinner, lighthearted conversation is exchanged as your feet are given a soothing massage. What makes the conversation so wonderful…your partner is genuinely attentive and absorbs your every word.

A nice hot bath is prepared for you with all the trimmings: a lit soft scented candle, melodic, soul-stirring music playing Trey Songz \”Massage\”, and even your bubbles are scented! The one who loves you exclaims, “This is your time; enjoy and unwind. Don’t allow anything to disturb these moments. Most of all understand that you deserve this and it has been a long time coming! I love you and I will see you when you are done.”

You say that you want this kind of love and romance but you are not willing to accept it. When romance is expressed to you, you often shun the attention; it feels weird and maybe too good to be true. You may even feel unworthy of feeling this good.  Things that happen outside the normalcy of your day-to-day life may even frighten you a bit. You may begin to question your mate’s intentions, “Huuuummm he/she has never done this before so what’s so special about today?”

I believe the “honeymoon stage” ends because many of us have not learned how to relax in a relationship.  The connection becomes more of a job than something pleasurable. Also past relationship issues seem to seep in to current relationships; such an unfortunate occurrence. This is no longer a light-hearted affair! Depending on the deepness of the feelings involved, things you would normally overlook now become items to ponder. After all in the beginning everyone puts their best foot forward but as we grow closer we reveal our true selves. My Grand Daddy always said, “He/she did not change Baby Girl, they just showed you what they wanted you to see and now you are learning what they are really all about!”

Back to the romance…

Upon exiting your bath you discover you will be oiled and rubbed down which is breathtaking to your already tranquil body and soul. Your lover’s hands feel so sensuous that an unplanned love-making session erupts. Tonight’s love making is un-hurried and exceedingly passionate. Adoration seems to be at its supreme climax; discovered is the truest meaning of two souls becoming perfectly intertwined. Whew…whew again!

The only thought left at the end of this idyllic evening is, “How can I surpass tonight?”

And Then Came You…

Your eyes, innocent yet seductive

Your smile, calming and inspiring

Something within you gives me hope

Something within you makes me want to love again

Your arms are strong yet gentle enough to protect and comfort me

I often imagine your touch pushing the pain away

I know you will listen, I mean really listen to what I feel or have to say

I am sure we share the same truths, our minds are connected

I know your passion, it’s parallel to mine

You love mind, body and soul, I share this ability

Thanks to you I can face what frightens me most

I am willing to conquer any obstacle preventing us from being one

Even though it sounds it sounds cliché…you absolutely take my breath away.
