The Lover’s Almanac 4 June – Do You Deserve Blazin’ Love?

Dear Z, Today’s Lover’s Almanac from Mac Tag to his muse.  Rhett

The Lover’s Almanac

Dear Muse,

Do unto yourself
Before you do unto others
Never could git that right
What led to so many failures
Deserve?  Deserve you say?
Deserves got nuthin’ to do with it

Not yours
But you were mine
And I do not quite know
how to live with that

Now, a tribute to beauty.

On this day in 1246, renowned blue-eyed, blonde-haired beauty, the “Helen” of the Middle Ages, Isabella of Angoulême died at Fontevraud Abbey in France.

And now on to today’s quotes.

I will be the very best me that I always want to be with you. – Sylvia Plath

If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people. – Virginia Woolf

I deserve that, don’t I, some sort of blazing love that I can live with. – Sylvia Plath

The first Plath quote says it all about love, right?  To be with that someone who makes one want to be a better person.  It brings to mind the line from the movie As Good as it Gets when Jack Nicholson‘s character tells Helen Hunt‘s character, “You make me want to be a better man.”  You made me want to be a better me for you.  Woolf’s quote goes to the heart of what I have always said about love; you have to love yourself, which includes bein’ honest with yourself, before you can love another.  I like to think, at long last, that I know who I am.  Not sure about the lovin’ part.  Probably why I have had so many failed relationships.  And I find Plath’s second quote rather poignant.  Deserve?  Well sure everyone deserves a blazin’ love they can live with.  Is that not the highest form of human achievement; to find ones blazin’ love?  Unfortunately as Clint Eastwood‘s character William Munny says in Unforgiven, “Deserves got nuthin’ to do with it.”  I know I was not your blazin’ love.  But you were mine.  And I do not quite know how to live with that.
