could take my life
could steal my heart
could cloud my mind
can you please
just love me now
I look at this image of the back of my dress from my wedding – I love this image now, but not when it was taken. I looked for the flaws, the wrinkles, the whisp of hair. It wasn’t perfect, I wasn’t perfect…but I wanted it to be. I wanted to be.
Love is imperfect. Life is imperfect. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
I find safety, sanity, embracing the imperfections.

“Last week, Rosema kicked off Monday Morning Melts with a deeply personal song, and shared with us her heart.
This week, I chose a song to reflect the chaos erupting in my side of the world. When hatred walks around every corner, that is when love will shine the brightest.
PROMPT: Love Me Now – John Legend
I don’t know who’s gonna kiss you when I’m gone
So I’m gonna love you now, like it’s all I have
I know it’ll kill me when it’s over
I don’t wanna think about it, I want you to love me now
- Share a poem, story, or photo inspired by this week’s song-lyrics-prompt. You can share something you created that was inspired directly by the lyrics or you can share other pieces that coincidentally fit the prompt (for ex: an old piece of yours, or one of a beloved blogger – with permission).
- Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
- Tag your post with MondayMorningMelts, so we and your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
- Most important of all, read and comment to your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).😉
There are no word limits and no restrictions except to stay true to the theme. Creating a brand new post in response to the prompt is also optional.
The goal isn’t to create new content, but rather to share pieces that melt the heart, tickle the soul, and brighten up a typically gloomy Monday. That’s why if you already have a piece that fits this week’s lyrics, or if you have a fellow blogger whose piece you want to share (with their permission), you are more than welcome to do so!”
