We construct with our words
The images our mind
Wishes to hold on to -
Due to personal reasons I'll be turning into a cloud and fly away with the wind.
Ginny & Georgia (TV Series 2021– )
Ten years from now I will be
sitting in the garden,
the orange sunset dying on my face.
I will be thinking of you,
the scent of magnolia blossoms
and words that string together
I will think of you
in your solitude
or in the arms of someone you love.
(But will I still remember?)
Oh how memories are fading,
leaving us standing in the river;
the current moves and we
have no way of stopping it.
If God would give me
another lifetime to atone all my sins,
I’d go upstream to find you
before the sunset ...
In [Andreas Capellanus'] dialogues the noblewoman upon being approached by a man of the higher nobility with romantic intentions, refuses the man’s suggestions by explaining that she is married: “it would be wicked for me to violate his bed or submit to the embraces of any other man, since I know that he [my husband] loves me with his whole heart and I am bound to him with all the devotion of mine.”
She later defends her decision to not indulge in adulterous affairs by explaining that: “Everyone should choose that love which may be fostered by security for continual embraces and, what is more, can be practiced every day without any sin.” She has rather shrewdly noted that the love of which Andreas’s nobleman speaks is sexual desire and “nothing prevents this feeling existing between husband and wife.”
Her opinions echo the speech of Chrétien’s Guinevere who in Cliges strives for a long lasting love replies to her that sexual pleasure is in fact more sinful in marriage because it defiles a sacred state, where sex should only be for the purpose of procreation:
“For whatever solaces married people extend to each other beyond what are inspired by the desire for offspring or the payment of the marriage debt cannot be free from sin, and the punishment is always greater when the use of a holy thing is perverted by misuse than if we practice the ordinary abuses.”
The argument shows that Andreas was greatly influenced by ecclesiastical writings which saw sex as sinful regardless of the circumstances. However, Andreas used these religious views to justify forgoing all propriety by indulging in extra-marital affairs, which through some loopholes could actually be considered less sinful than defiling a marriage with passion.

i don't want to be saved, i don't need anyone to save me either, but sometimes i get tired of fighting and i need some help.
doesn't mean someone has to do everything for me, just help me get back on my feet, cause life is hard and asking for help is an act of bravery
i love it when people make you feel loved without even saying the words "i love you"
