Can Love Heal? I Believe.... #RB4U @melissa_keir


Can Love Heal?

I have always believed in love and romance. It's a part of the reason I read romance novels. They always feature a happily ever after, no matter what the challenges that the couple faces, whether it's another woman or their own stubbornness. I love to write about my thoughts and feelings. Here's a piece I wrote about love...
Words are inadequate to explain love. If people like Shakespeare struggle with it, who would think that I could? Trust me, I’ve tried and I am not often at a loss for words. The ones that I choose seem to lack the full experience. It is like looking at photograph of cheesecake when you are dieting and starving. It lacks the full experience. I can tell you how he makes me feel. I feel like a whole person. I can be myself and know that even no matter how yucky, he will love and accept me. No matter how tight he holds me, I feel only safe not trapped.  I feel beautiful at 3 am in the morning without my makeup on and my hair sticking up. Rather than dismiss my ideas, he listens, asks questions and is open to what I am saying. When I help him with something, I am a superhero! And yet, with these words, I only scratch the surface. Just by putting the words to paper, I find that it isn’t complete. It is still like trying to catch smoke in your hands…always slipping through your fingers.  

Maybe water is a better way to describe love... No matter how much you have, you can always have more. Everyone deserves and needs it. While it is everywhere, it is hard to hold on to, you have to be adaptable to even grasp a drop. It is powerful enough to light a city or move a mountain and gentle enough to cradle you as you float in it. It cleanses and fills you up. It never really dies but changes forms, passion to comfort. It soothes and comforts you. It nourishes your soul.

Someone recently asked why I write romance... this is why... Love is everlasting and does heal the soul. It's healed mine and I hope through my own stories, it's helped others, whether providing an escape, a second chance or a dream of what might be. If I've brought someone pleasure, friendship or love... it's worth it!

If you enjoy these musings (and recipes and poetry), you can find more in my book- Musings of a Mad-Cap Mind available in ebook and print. 

One woman’s musings become another woman’s courage… 

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you worry about the person you’ve become? Sitting down at the computer, Melissa spent many hours reflecting on her life, family, and relationships. These musings, recipes, and poems tell the tale of one woman's changing thoughts and feelings about life. 
Come along with her as she explores her reflections, using her words which mirror her changes.

What an inspirational post. I read and write romance because I want the happily-ever-after too. I certainly believe in the healing power of love.

Wonderful, Melissa! I think it is healing. Handsome had cancer eight years ago and our love is what carried us through. The talking and sharing, the handholding, the cuddling. An incredible tight bond. Hugs.

Wonderful post, Melissa. I too love the HEA at the end of each romance. When I read outside the genre now, I feel cheated if it doesn't have one. :)
