“The truth is when you’ve got that soul fire ignited by someone, you’ve got to watch out and not let it burn you up, your time, your attention, your entire existence should not be consumed and engulfed by the flames. If you are finding that you can’t be without them, then the fire you’re stoking is anti-loneliness and not true passion. People mistake this all the time and wonder why they were burned by a lover. It’s not mundane to have someone that stays there on your mind and you can function just fine, in fact that’s the sign of a healthy relationship. When things in your life get ignored or set aside for someone, well that’s what will happen to you eventually in the relationship. So focus on being your regular self and find the one who adds to it, your daily life should become emphasized and not compromised with love.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“Only the mind can put itself back in place, the same goes for the heart, now when it comes to the soul, well that takes a higher power to restore no matter what your belief system is. Most veterans have been witnessed to these truths. Most veterans have a bruised soul, then there are the ones with fractured hearts and worse yet those with shattered minds. That’s why with us that served the saying of “leave no man behind” is so important. Just because they maybe here at home in the states doesn’t mean that the person has made it home. We as a nation owe our veterans a piece of our own heart, time from your mind, and for us to do some soul searching for the betterment of all mankind. So do what every man and woman who has served or is serving a favor, take your own oath to protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic. We stepped up for you, now stand with us. We are or were your first line of defense, the second lies with the police officers, and we need to stand for justice, we need to stop the nonsense, all this strife, what is it good for? We can’t be a nation at war with each other and scream for civility, justice, and harmony. Every soldier and sailor knows discrimination at all levels and kinds, yet when asked if they’d give thier lives for yours, they smile and nod and say yes every time. No body is perfect, no matter the uniform, yet to serve in a system that has now made the criminal or terrorist out to be a hero of sorts, well maybe it’s not the veteran whose soul is bruised, whose heart is fractured, whose mind is shattered. Maybe, just maybe, it is society that’s truly disturbed.” – Ryan L. Rinehart

“I feel that like most of the time that a person can be much like a book in that they too can invite pain, misery, joy and love, happiness and sadness and that is their destiny to do so. Since they are the author’s of their life, if they chose to do so. And I do try to write in my own life my wants and needs, but sometimes, it’s that very search that leaves one empty. I know how to love loudly and I know how to love quietly, I know how to love completely but I don’t know how to love slightly. The way one reads a book, you’ve got to start at the beginning, go on the journey to learn to love it deeply so you’ll stay to the end. And that’s all my problems with love my friends, I never fear to read what’s there, but many have had hidden chapters they wished not to bare, causing heartache that turns my feelings into I don’t care. If only one day I find a girl whose story merges into mine and together make a new story, one of a lifetime. Well then that will be the greatest unwritten story of my life, for I will be to busy with her to put pen to paper, and all I can do is wish. In every heartbeat there’s time for a wish, in every well instead of penny’s I will throw a dime, and in everything I do I am sending out the vibe.”
“For the Love of Hart” by Ryan L. Rinehart

“Even after everything, how we ended, I truly do hope and wish you to be happy. Please take care of yourself, and that part of me that you took with you, that will forever be yours. I still linger in memories and could be’s, the fantasies go on in my mind, they create a new world where I hear myself say such things to you that I adore. For instance, I get to a point where I tell you that no matter what I wanna hear what’s on your mind, day or night, no matter the time. If it’s four am and you’ve awaken from some crazy dream and can’t quite explain it but need to tell it, I wanna be the one to hear it. Or why your morning drive to work pissed you off so much you just can’t think, or why your mom seems to be acting like such a bitch, but most of all I wanna pass all the small talk and get to your depths, to get to the heart of where you exist. I want to touch the place no one truly ever gets. You’ve called it your darkness, but I don’t see it that way, because I too have put things away out of the light, put away so that they seem hid behind. I wanted to know your childhood memories, good, the bad, the suffering, but most of all, I wanted to know if you still had it in you, that kid who saw magic, who didn’t give up on believing. Because when I looked at you the kid in me saw the magic once again, it was you who had me believing. And if I could do for you what you did for me, what would that be? Nothing more than two souls saving each other by connecting. That’s why, I remain in a solitary state, and there I will remain, I guess it’s to say, even though it’s over, I still love you unconditionally.

“A moment could have passed and you could have been in it yet you were to busy looking for the one, causing you to miss it. Forest indeed have trees, but did you see the ants, the crickets and the bees? Sometimes the big picture needs broken down to individual scenes, but you still must be in them, you still must play your part. Sure there will be big moments that take your breath away, but it’s always the little ones that steal your heart.”
– Ryan L. Rinehart

“She had been broken and no longer trusted words from anyone, but I was a words kinda guy, so I said then your words mean shit too if it’s words you don’t trust. How about this view, stop blaming the words and blame the individual who used them, cause I don’t know about you but to me words can convey so much and clarifies what isn’t said. I could see she didn’t want to let go of her pain, so I did what I thought best, I kissed her forehead and walked away. Sometimes you can’t save someone unless they are willing, a broken heart holding on will never heal, she had replaced love with pain and that’s all she will ever feel. Being indifferent isn’t different, it’s being unreal.”
– Ryan L. Rinehart

“I never meant for my words to capture your heart, I don’t use them for that purpose, I just try to be who I am in everything. If that is what was the thing that grabbed you, I can see a point where your aggravation gets the best of you. Expression comes with a price, I pay for it with every letter in every sentence in every message. I long for the time when a heart such as mine struggles to find a way to say hello, she’ll know to hear my words, to feel the meaning in my touch, but mostly to just love the thing that is us.”

– Ryan L. Rinehart

“A daydream deluge into desire and discussion is where we found ourselves that day. On into the night we let our creative imagination play. Fun times without the fickle folly of regrets and drama. Sensuous seduction is serious in its synchronicity of two similar subjective souls.”
