Discovering Intimacy

The fourth promise of ACOA says, "Our ability to share intimacy will grow inside us."

Discovering Intimacy

I want to share love...
more then be in love
I want to be vulnerable enough
to trust you with my feelings

I want to feel secure enough
to know I won't be shamed
I want to face my fears and insecurities
knowing it is time to be intimate with you

I want to be one... but two as well
to be apart... yet together
to be whole... yet separate
it's not what I need... but it's what I want

I want to feel love
I want to feel your touch
knowing I am safe in your embrace
feeling comfort saying “I love you”

honesty gave me hope
vulnerability brought me trust
love brought respect
while intimacy delivered peace
