To know

Other languages have more words for "knowing" than English does. But I don't know the other languages i know well enough to know if the "knowing" words convey the sense i'm looking for: the sense of being able to state a fact or explain a concept vs. truly understanding something deep in your being.....

He has ways of making me know things.

I love words, but some things take feeling them to really know.

He has a way of doing, a tone to his actions that make me know, whatever it is i need to know.....
   That he treasures me
   That he holds me to expectations
   That he will let me run with my head to a point, but he will not let me go past his limits
   That he has forgiven me
   That he is the one in control
   That even if i don't like it in the moment, i do need the pain
   That this is who we are.


  1. It's good to truly know, when without a doubt you just *know*…you know each other.

  2. So well said- I got a shiver. Yes, there is a tone to their actions, and that tone also sends a shiver.
    I never thought of it that way, but so true!

  3. Jz - thanks sweets.

    K - it is good - it takes time - but it's good.

    Elysia - shivers are part of it, yea.

  4. This was very poetic, just knowing who we are is a wonderful thing. I would think it keeps getting and better as well.

  5. I love this! Quite a beautiful post.

  6. Ooooh that's very nice!!! And deeply honest.


  7. db,
    thank you - it all goes round and round and up and down - but over time, does get better and better.

    Thank you so much.

    thank you - He liked it to - i think because of the honest part.
