Locked Out of Heaven

Wednesday, November 23, 2016




Let’s talk about sex. We’re all adults (or, well, at least I believe that everyone who goes to my blog page is an adult), so why don’t we talk about this issue. It’s time already. So, have you ever met someone you feel connected so much, and because of the intense emotions, you feel like you love to make love to that person, not as an act but as an event? I believe that we’ve all been there. Well, I’ve been there. Two people connect; two people cannot get enough of each other; and when we meet a person like that, we cannot get enough of sharing a piece of heaven with that person, whether it’s physically or emotionally. There is a difference between “making love” and “having sex”. “Making love” is definitely a sexual activity. However in terms of emotional condition, it’s far beyond “having sex”. So, which kind of sex am I going to talk here? It’s definitely the “making love”-kind of sex. In some relationships, ones punishes the other by denying or controlling sex, or maybe ones feels like the other doesn’t enjoy the sex and just do it to fulfill a need or a sense of responsibility; well, that’s the examples of some dysfunctional relationship. When you both feel so much for each other, the barrier between man and woman is no longer exist; it’s called sincerity and that way making love is amazing. Just so you know, women want to make love just as much as men.

Never had much faith in love or miracles. Never wanna put my heart on the line. But swimming in your water is something spiritual. I’m born again every time you spend the night.” –Bruno Mars, Locked Out Of Heaven

There is this sexy song performed by Bruno Mars titled “Locked Out Of Heaven”. It was released on October 1st 2012 as the lead single taken from the singer’s second studio album, “Unorthodox Jukebox”. The album itself was released on December 7th 2012. This reggae rock track was written by Mars himself along with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine of The Smeezingtons. A music video for the song was directed by Cameron Duddy and Mars himself, and was released on October 15th 2012. Lyrically, though directly talk about sex, it is simply about someone who finally found the one. It contains an obvious comparison of being with a loved one to being in heaven.

I guess it’s true when they say that we never know how to appreciate a ray of sunlight when we never feel being soaked under the hard rain. It’s also so true when they say that we would never know how to love and be loved when we never feel pain and heartbroken. We’ve all been hurt before, and we’ve sworn to ourselves to never be hurt again. However, when we meet someone who means so much for us, we will be willing to let down our guard. And when that time comes with the right person too, then the feeling is amazing. “Never had much faith in love or miracles. Never wanna put my heart on the line. But swimming in your water is something spiritual. I’m born again every time you spend the night.” Making love to someone is like sharing our lives to them and by doing so can make us so happy. It is the closest to heaven that we can feel. We share the moment without feeling embarrassed or inhibited or ever feel like we’re unwanted. We want, crave and ache to feel each other, please each other, and become as close as we can to one another.
There were times, for some people, when we used to be happy-go-lucky kind of person who pursue some no-strings-attached “good time” and didn’t take relationship seriously. However, there will be a time when we meet a certain person and by being together with this one person we could feel a deeper feeling than usual. “You bring me to my knees, you make me testify. You can make a sinner change his ways. Open up your gates ‘cause I can’t wait to see the light. And right there is where I wanna stay.” When we think about truly loving someone, it takes about being vulnerable and completely open with our emotion. When we truly love someone, we open up our guard automatically; we’re being vulnerable, open, and loving completely. And when we finally could find someone that we can love like that, then where else we would want to stay but beside them? For making love with that person would feel magical and spiritual; a little closer to heaven. For making love with that person could make us feel enlightened and purified, just like heaven.
We used to think that those usual “good time” are good, but when we meet that certain person, being with that person is beyond everything we’ve ever felt before. And then we finally come to a realization that those “good time” before were nothing compared to this one. “Your sex takes me to paradise. And it shows. ‘Cause you make me feel like I’ve been locked out of heaven for too long.” It is great and it brings us happiness. And when we compare the feeling for that person to other past relationships, it feels like we share heaven with that person everytime we’re together. Everytime we make love, we share something we’ve never felt before. “Can I just stay here? Spend the rest of my days here? Can’t I just stay here? Spend the rest of my days here?” This kind of feeling is so intense that it makes us seriously consider that person to be “the one” that meant forever for us. Then again, where else we would want to stay but beside our soulmate? In a place where we can find a peace of mind, where we can feel closer to heaven; there is where we want to be.

It’s not a tragedy if you fall in love again. It’s not a tragedy when your newer relationship is much better than the past. There is a time for everything. Without your past experience, you would never know how it really feels to be truly in love with someone. When you find someone who has a deep emotional connection with you; someone who is compassionate, loving, and genuinely care about you, then you know you are with the one who really meant for you. When you find someone whom you can share the heavenly truth with; someone who can make you realize that you never experienced such an emotional and spiritual connection with, then you know you belong with that person. Someone like that is like a truth and light in your life. It may sounds a bit utopis, but I dare to tell you that it happens. If you haven’t met that person yet, then believe that someday you will find a person who can make you feel like you’ve been locked out of heaven all this time before meeting that person. For being together with that person will make you feel the closest thing to heaven. For making love with that person will make you experience a sexual relationship that has spiritual roots. Rather than your bodies meet together, it’s like your souls that make love to each other.

You bring me to my knees, you make me testify. You can make a sinner change his ways. Open up your gates ‘cause I can’t wait to see the light. And right there is where I wanna stay.” –Bruno Mars, Locked Out Of Heaven
