The Heart-Key Swindle.


Kindling a romance,

Out of fear of being alone


And I thought I was selfish.

    1. I get where you’re coming from. It all depends on who and how they look at it I suppose. Others think of it as a process that needs to be met. Fulfilling our role and all that.

      On a side note: would you be okay being in a relationship with someone who fears loneliness first and loves you second?

      (There is no wrong answer. Im only curious)

  1. This is heart-breaking and toxic and yet a gospel truth of this world.

    It feels great to be back on your space, Dante! I hope you are doing well.

    Enigma 🙂 ❤

    1. It is heartbreaking isn’t it. Going ALL in now brands you a psycho 😹.

      Too bad I don’t know how to love in any other way than all in. I accepted a while back how my standards for soul bonding are the closest thing to fiction.

      Thank you for reading. Always appreciate having you here 💚

      1. “My standards for soul bonding are the closest thing to fiction” May I say how much I relate to this? This is very true.

        It is always a pleasure to read your works. 🙂


  2. There are times I think being alone is undervalued, in terms of spending time in meditation and learning about one’s self. The other side being, as you mentioned, either an unhealthy need to “not be alone” or else unhealthy need to “always be alone”. I think the key is balance. Learning to love completely and wholly, even at the risk of being hurt. Learning that, even in the depths of real love, being alone at times is also okay.
