“I admit I was afraid to love. Not just love, but to love her. For she was a stunning mystery. She carried things inside of her that no one has yet to understand, and I, I was afraid to fail, like the others. She was the ocean and I was just a boy who loved the waves but was completely terrified to swim.” ~ Christopher Poindexter
The love of a Pisces is one from which there is no return.
Even if we part ways from our gentle Pisces, they will always be there in the back of our heads as the one that got away. They will be the sun warm upon our bare skin, the drops of rain catching in our eyelashes, and the smell of the first snow covering the barren ground.
The most mysterious part of a Pisces’ love is the way in which it winds itself not just around our lover, but into their very soul.
Pisces are one of the most mysterious and romantic of all the signs. We also are the ones who not only confuse, but at the same time terrify our lovers. We are bittersweet, because although the love of a Pisces is intoxicating, it’s one that can be overwhelming as well.
Yet no matter how hard it is to love a Pisces, it’s next to impossible to not love us.
Pisces are known for our deep eyes. All of our emotions are readily available in our eyes, and not only can we tell our lovers that we love them in a blink of an eye—the depths to which a lover will fall when they gaze into our soul truly are unfathomable.
Pisces are the old souls of the zodiac—we are those who have walked this earth before. We carry the knowledge of a thousand stars within the breath of our hearts, and we will understand our lovers on a level differently than they have ever experienced before.
The ability to be understood by a Pisces, without having to explain yourself—that is one of the first addictions of this type of love. After being so completely understood and accepted unconditionally, any other type of love seems listless in comparison.
When a Pisces loves, there is no half way.
A Pisces’ love is the complete opening of their heart to another—we are late night tumblers of whiskey spilling into Sunday morning pancakes sticky with syrup.
Pisces are the quiet dreams of what our lovers have always desired—but never thought they would actually get. Pisces are shy smiles and seductive kisses. Pisces are romantic and dreamy by nature; it’s not a difficult step to join us in the fantasy world that we not only create, but live in most of the time. And after spending time with a Pisces in the dream-world that we reside in, it will be impossible to be satisfied by the mundane existence that most enjoy.
For it seems no matter what a Pisces is doing, it simply seems magical.
One of the most intoxicating parts of a Pisces is the way we will kiss our lovers’ souls from their bodies. Pisces loves to please, and we take great satisfaction in giving our lovers pleasure.
We see sex as not just a destination, but a journey as well.
Pisces are after tasting and exploring each part of our lover’s bodies—we want to see them orgasm multiple times, until the only word left upon their lips is our name.
The Pisces symbol is the fish swimming in opposite directions—and it is this contradiction that continually ripples just below the surface. There is no boxing in of a true Pisces, they are intellectually stimulating yet silly, they are extreme sex appeal yet loyal to a fault, they are independent, yet love to care for others.
A Pisces always surprising their lover is what will slowly drive them to ruin. Every day is a new adventure with a Pisces on your arm, because each day we will be different than the one before.
Pisces don’t just talk about our dreams and what we want to accomplish—we actually do it.
We understand that anything worth having is also worth waiting for. We are the most patient and understanding of all the signs, and it is this comfort that will continually bring our lovers back for more.
No matter how crazy we spin our dreams at times, once the sparks of our eyes have gotten beneath the skin of our lover—they will forever be addicted.
It’s an addiction that is based in the soul, and lived from the heart. It’s one that holds a gentle smile upon our lover’s lips in the knowledge that they hold what many others may covet.
It’s the feeling of sinking into the deepest bluest ocean, simply enjoying the feel of the waves and learning that the only way to live with the love a Pisces is to simply let go.
