Monogamous Intimacy

Pure eyes. He has pure eyes for you. Can’t you see it?

Sapphire fire. Verified diamonds. Electrified sirens alerting the heavens that passion is found. His eyes make me drown so I need Him to dive for me. Swim for me. Fly for me. Soar for me to the sun where nobody else inhabits the mountains that wait for us in the secret place. Our voices are the only echoes the canyons reverberate.

“A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”
‭John‬ ‭10:5‬ ‭

Don’t invite strangers into your love life.

“Draw me after you; let us run. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will exult and rejoice in you; we will extol your love more than wine; rightly do they love you.” Song of Solomon‬ ‭1:4‬ ‭

I know they love you. But they can’t have you. You belong to me and I belong to you. Nobody else can have me.

“If you do not know, O most beautiful among women… As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women.” Song of Solomon 1:8,‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭

He calls me most beautiful. And I deem Him most handsome.

“My Beloved is radiant and ruddy, distinguished among ten thousand.” Song of Solomon‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭

His eyes are the only eyes I want looking back at me at high tide and midnight. By starlight and moonlight.

My eyes only arouse for you, she says…

My eyes only flame for you, He says…

Be true to your lover.

Monogamous relationships brew pure intimacy when founded by God. Pure love. True love.

true love

He feels it

true love

like the canyons

feel the sun

when its morning touch

comes 

like the forests

feel the dew

when its sunrise hues

run

into the horizon

I’ll be running with You forever

into the dawning

of the Zion’s pleasure

Commit to your lover. You only have one. One lover. The heart doesn’t want more than one. It doesn’t need it. The fullness of pleasure and delight springs from the highest connection with the one. When there is more than one lover present in your life, you cannot fully give to either. Thus, there is frustration and depletion because there is a division of the mind and spirit. 

God intends to give you undivided love.

Love your lover with undivided love. 

Jesus said, “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine.” in Matthew 10:37. This is harsh language and I wonder what He means by this, considering love is the highest virtue of the Kingdom of God. But when it comes to our heart’s affection, God wants it all. He is not interested in your half-hearted commitment nor wandering love. He wants your sold-out love. A love that vows to Him 24/7.

You are worthy of expressing undivided love.

You are worthy for wanting undivided love.

You are worthy for desiring undivided love.

Jesus wants one lover, so do I, so do you.

This is how we were meant to function! One lover. One heart. One soul. Yours and mine tethered together forever. I don’t want to be one of many. I don’t want to be one of two. I want to be yours, fully yours. I don’t need anybody else but you. 

“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23

I keep my heart protected from all invasions of other lovers. Anyone who might attempt to tempt me with another taste of passion or affection, and at the revelation of my rejection that see I only have one heart to give and one lover to spend every ounce of my love on. I only want you.

Monogamy says one lover.

One love. One relationship. One person to give your heart to. It’s in this deep-rooted connection of monogamy that you experience the best intimacy you can ever experience because you deeply know and love the other. There is raw vulnerability and mutual need to know and nurture one another. It’s a space of complete transparency and openness. Healing. Falling apart. Strengthening. Opening up. Where two lovers woven together can symbiotically fuel life for one another of the human essence. This is the kind of love you want. The kind of love you were designed for. 

Commit to your lover and only your lover, and your soul experiences the heights of love at euphoric levels.

Intimacy heats up for the one and only one you vow to love day and night. Ignite the fire. Strike the light. Love with passion’s flames of delight enduring bright.

“Like fire that burns the forest, And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire.” Psalm‬ ‭83:14‬ ‭

I’m a fiery lover. But I’m only a fiery lover for you…

I choose you.

my love burns for you

steams for you

yearns for you

needs you to 

give me

your heart’s desires

 I have the fire

needed

to touch your soul

it’s you and I

Heaven loves to behold

 

“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord.” Song of Solomon‬ ‭8:6‬
