What Inspires Me to Write about Love?

This may seem pretentious, but it’s really not. There are many reasons why I write about love. I will say for one, women are my inspiration for writing about love. My admiration and appreciation for beautiful women inspires 90% of my writing. Her fragrance, the clack of her shoes, her curves in a dress, jeans or sweatpants, her smile, her conversation, her skin, her touch, her ambition, her strengthen, her spirit, her relationship with God, There’s just something therapeutic about her loving–not just sexually, but her care, nature and nurture. There’s something divine when a woman walks into a room. She has the kind of presence that demands not only a man’s attention, but also his respect. A woman’s presence provides the content for my writing. Am I writing with someone in mind? Good question.

I also love writing about love because it’s so rich and complex: love is an intangible something at heart, but we see it tangibly when it is expressed emotionally and physically. In other words, I believe love to be a spiritual force that manifest itself through the portals of our emotions, and more aggressive and passionately, it manifest itself physically. But when you love spiritually, you love without the boundaries of emotions and the physical aspect. This is important here because love will require you one day to love when you don’t feel like loving or when lovemaking is put on the backburner because of stress or health issues. Loving spiritually supersedes pass emotions and the physical aspect of love.

Another reason why I write about love is because love is life: we cannot exist without love. People live dark lives or sorrowful ones because of the absence of love from another and this is not to say that we don’t need love from others but if you allow the love from another to complete you instead of compliment you, you will always feel incomplete and unfulfilled. The love from another is to compliment you and not to complete you. If the one you loved leaves you—you should be able to survive with the love you have for yourself and that same love you have will give you the strength to carry on meet THE love of your life.

Finally, I love writing about love because it is one of my love languages. I love expressing my thoughts and feelings verbally and through words. Whenever I write about love it is my attempt to give love and to inspire others in some positive and insightful way.

    Very insightful and inspiring. I think it speaks volumes that you have approached a topic that is typically less desirable and unspoken by men. I look forward to reading more…

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      I think the subject of love for men is less desirable to write or speak on because its an emotional and sensitive topic. I think a man has to be transparent, vulnerable and secure enough to journey in emotional and spiritual spaces without fear of being judged. Yes, I am aware that some readers may think I am “sensitive” because I write about love, but my view are contrary to theirs.

      I write about love because I am human being and I understand that God created humans to love. One of my goals as a writer is to break the narrow and stereotypes tagged to black men. I’m sure they are other black men out there who share the same views about love as I do, but again, they are afraid because they feel will be judged as someone they aren’t.

      A man can still be masculine and be expressive/and or a man can still be a man and human.

    It is delightful and fulfilling to read your comments and hear the passion in the words you have chosen to share your insights with us (your readers).

    Continue your journey confident that you are changing lives each day.

    I look forward to reading more of your materials.

    • Melvin Davis says:

      I don’t think I could write without the love and passion for writing. I really believe when you write with the two ingredients in mind–words cannot fall on deaf hear. If not felt or understood by many, they will by at least one or two.

      Thanks for the encouragement of continuing on my journey with confidence and faith. I am honored to be used to change lives and bring a little hope to the doorsteps of someones heart.

      I look forward to sharing more. Please share on with friends and family as you see fit 🙂

    • Melvin Davis says:

      There aren’t many men in the business of sharing their perspectives on love, so I’m glad to be able play my part in doing so 🙂

    Salutation friend, I am absolutely speechless, love the framing of your words. Eloquent and descriptively painting a picture that is so vivid, breathe taking and captivating.Its rather unfortunate, but nonetheless true and few would argue that not many men are as gifted.

    • Melvin Davis says:

      All of what you described of my writing was written in my statement of purpose as a writer or as written out what kind of writer I want to be. That’s exactly how I want readers to respond to my work. But all the thanks and praise goes to God, who has given me a philosophical nature, a deep and spiritual state of mind

    Distinguished ,poised, quiet confidence, man of substance and valor…you are quite the gentleman…..its rather unfortunate and few would debate that there arent many men who understand nor can they articulate it so eloquently what women want.Love the framing of your words thought provoking and captivating.Be blessed

    • Melvin Davis says:

      Leeta,

      My apologies for the late reply. I didn’t see this response.

      Thanks for reading my blog. I’m just a messenger sent to enlighten people about love with hopes they’ll make the right decisions in their life, and to encourage those who already found love, to value and appreciate that person.

    So true!!!!!

    It’s ironic to see a man so expressive with his feelings- Its rare but you’re very good. Your work is impressive and nothing short of been interesting, but, is is it a but too idealistic? Is this true divine love you search for realistic? God is love and in his ultimate wisdom may allow us to taste pinch of this in our relationship with him but wow, to believe we can achieve it with each other with the love of our lives is FAITH IN ACTION. Forgive me, if I may disagree with you

    • Melvin Davis says:

      Jenet,

      Thanks for your kind comments,and for taking the time to browse my blogs.

      Someone once asked me “am I setting people up to believe they can experience what I write about?” My answer.,”why not?”

      All it takes is effort, and intention for a woman to be good to her man, and vice versa.

      To say what I write of too “idealistic” is to say I don’t believe God can bless you with a wonderful relationship.
