Butterfly Kisses... The Morning After Grey's Anatomy

butterfly kisses: fluttering one's eyelashes on someone's skin so they just feel the tickling sensation -

Grey's is one of my favorite, grown woman, TV indulgent shows. I love all of the characters for their stupidity and what they offer as they play our their parts but what I love most are the show's writers! I would love to meet them and get inside their heads just for the little things that they come up with that make a sister like me tear out of my right eye! Whew!

So this post was inspired by last night's season finale...

One of my favorite songs, written by, sung by Goapele is entitled Butterfly Kisses.

"You came to me in a dream
All the qualities I asked for
In a man
Just understand me
Love me as you know me
I'll let you know me well"

What if you dreamt of the man of your dreams almost every night only to wake up and realize the one you're laying next to isn't him and what if he is actually laying in bed with someone else too? What if you love him, yes, for his physical, explored his personal but you're unable to have the real? What if he really loves you too, always did but he's afraid of what loving you will do to him, destroying the friendships he's built and will break the heart of his loved one?

"I don't anticipate putting up a gate
Or shelter around my heart
I intend to find the good inside
Promise the real you
So pure"

What if you could be who you are with the one you're with? What if you could be quirky, naive, vulnerable, shy and opinionated? What if your relationship gave you freedom, wholesomeness, purity?

"So I can give you
And pleasure you can feel
I'll daze you, even bathe you
If you remain to keep it real"

What if you were with someone who was real with you, real with themselves? What if you found someone who gave of themselves with the same intensity as you do that when you two share kisses, sparks fly, emotions overflow?

"If you love me, love my mother;
Know you my father
Hang with my brother
Don't discriminate
Or isolate me
Please let me be myself
I want to wear what I want to wear
And say whats on my mind
Please be kind"

What if the man you always desired didn't hesitate to take you home to meet his mother and fell instantly in love with yours? What if the man of your dreams slapped five with your pops and produced music or played ball with your brother? What if the man of your dreams respected your love of erotica, loved to see you in make-up and picked out the skimpiest, tightest, boldest outfits for you just so he could show his boys the prize he's won?

And at the end of the day, what if he laid his head on your lap or tilted your chin up to meet his lips or whispered the words "I love you", "You're my the woman of my dreams", "I respect you", "You make my life extraordinary"...

This is a really deep post. I can relate to some it and have experienced some but not all of it. I had to send this one to one of my girlfriends to read.

Monique... thank you!


That was a great episode of Grey's Anatomy. Hardly do I watch network TV and I'm tearing. Either the show was mushy or it was my hormones. lol
