Listening to Desire; a Warrior’s Path

“Warrior Desire is the inspired ache you feel when something tugs on your soul. It’s the burning call of purpose and passion inside you.” Laura Di Franco, from Warrior Desire, Love Poems to Inspire Your Fiercely Alive Whole Self

Are you being a warrior when it comes to listening to your deepest desires?

It took me a really long time to publish this book. Warrior Desire, Love Poems to Inspire Your Fiercely Alive Whole Self is a collection of poems, reflections and writing prompts to help ignite the reader to begin a journey to their sensual, creative, powerful, authentic self.

On those pages you’ll find my journey splattered out loud. Because, vulnerability is our strength. Authenticity is our connection with the world; with other humans who crave love and joy.

The healing journey is a lot of things, including the path toward your deepest desires for love, joy and belonging. We could be talking about love in so many ways right now. The love of a lover, parent to child, friend, humanity…it’s your pick.

Are you loving bigger? Are you feeling what you need to feel to realize the intensity of that energy? To manifest more of it into your life?

I have made this a priority.

And what that has overwhelmingly brought into my life is more love, gratitude and joy. Bigger love. Juicier love. Laughter. Calm. Peace. A relaxation into my moments that’s blissful.

Imagine relaxing into your moments without worry.

Imagine embodying happiness itself.

Imagine what life could be like…that life you truly desire.

Warrior desire is about how that journey plays out in someone who made it their practice. And is now offering a peek into what that practice might look like for you.

Come celebrate a bigger love with me.

Here’s a taste of one of the poems in the book:

Rest Your Body Down

Finding me
in you
slowly feeling you
in me
floating higher
I see
the only way
I could
ever be

Stars fall
for us
night shines
with us
reaching deeper
I find
the only place
I was
always me

Your eyes find
the way
to unwind me
your touch
my sigh
I can’t imagine
another place
I’d rather
be

Rest your body down
on my soul
bring me to the end
don’t go
wrap me up hard
with your love
make me know
I’ll never want more.

Finally free
with you
feeling everything
I knew
breathing love
I can fly
my way
through
life

Dawn breaks
for us
another day
for us
dreaming bigger
I shake
my world
open
and play

Rest your body down
on my soul
bring me to the end
don’t go
wrap me up hard
with your love
make me know
I’ll never want more

Your love
makes its way
inside me
your rhythm
my light
I can’t feel
more right
than
now

Music flows
for us
soul shows up
in us
pulling it all in
losing myself
in you
I create
something new

Come on now
touch me again
send me
to that place
I know
you can
I’m waiting
on fire
for your love

Rest your body down
on my soul
bring me to the end
don’t go
wrap me up hard
with your love
make me know
I’ll never want more

Make me know
I’ll never want more

Please
make me know
I’ll never want more
