Test of True Love

He is surprised.

He thought that he was higher on her list of priorities.

Especially when she knows the nature of his pride.

    I pledge he is the first thought. That it how I love my Big Daddy. That’s how I’m good.
    You speak to my heart.

    Everyone makes time for the things that are important to them. I’ve learned that the hard way.

    We certainly all want to be on our special someone’s priority list~right at the top! Loved this.

    The Bible is filled with some very…..ridiculous things. But the phrase “pride goes before a fall” has always struck me as wise. I wish it were not so, but I have learned…

      I must disagree. I know many proud people who show no sign of falling, and many with no pride who endlessly tumble. I think that there is confusion between the words ‘pride’ and ‘complacency’.
      Thank you for commenting. Appreciated.

    You always say so much in so few words, it always astounds me.

    It is hard to not feel like someone’s first thoughts, or highest priority, though I do believe sometimes we are wrong in determining what we mean to another. Sometimes our perspective is skewed and we do not see that yes we are that first thought, that always thought – perhaps that person does not show it clearly enough. I know I have been wrong before with this.

      There is much truth in what you say. And I have been wrong too. But it does not change the feeling.
      Thanks for reading and commenting.

        Wrong or right, the feelings are what are true for you. If that is how you feel, then that is your truth.

        You’re welcome, I always love your writing.

          You are right. We all have our own truth. Perhaps there is no universal one when we each prefer our own so much.
          And I always enjoy your writing enormously too, dear L

            Smiles, dear D, that means so much to me, more than I can articulate.

            We do all possess our own truths, which can be part of what is so enthralling about each other, and often what is so infuriating. Quite a challenge to ever prefer anyone else’s but our own.

            All that said, we all want to be adored and we all want to be someone else’s everything, don’t you think?

    Indeed a privilege, and of the highest honor to be His chosen one. I was severely punished for insolence once. He withdrew his presence and i was silenced. Terribly painful.

      I cannot imagine you being insolent, but can imagine the impact of the punishment

    She betrayed or was indulging in mind it so? Or, she never existed….

    love and pride are incompatible. Thank you for the lovely read, Mr. D.

    …wait, is this the mistress one who halved a breadcrumb with her thumbnail? : )

      Laughing. No. Complicated, isn’t it?

        I’m just joking. It’s not complicated, it’s a pattern like everyone else. I thoroughly enjoy it all and thank you for being here.

    Smiling, its not often we see your feathers so ruffled 🙂 Could it be that she didn’t realise? Perhaps a genuine and innocent misdemeanour? x

    That is the nature of humans. I would suppose that she is all the more intriguing to you now. One wants all the more that which does not come easily. Probably just a move in the game, and you sir are no pawn. Stay true to your worth.

    Lost intrigue, makes me feel sad, you? Perhaps it is the late hour that doesn’t help. I shouldn’t read poems so late at night…the veil is thin and emotions raw. But that is often where my inspiration comes from.
