Love they say enslaves and passion is a demon and many have been lost for love. I know this is true but I know too that without love we grope the tunnels of our lives and never see the sun. When I fell in love it was as though I looked into a mirror for the first time and saw myself. I lifted my hand in bewilderment and felt my cheeks my neck. This was me. And when I had looked at myself and grown accustomed to who I was I was not afraid to hate parts of me because I wanted to be worthy of the mirror bearer.

When love beckons to you follow himThough his ways are hard and steep.And When his wings enfold you yield to himThough the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.And When he speaks to you believe in himThough his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden...But if in your fear you would seek only loves peace and loves pleasureThen it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out ofloves threshing-floorInto the seasonless world where you shall laugh but not all of your laughter and weep but not all of your tears...But if you love and must needs have desires let these be your desiresTo melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.To know the pain of too much tenderness.To be wounded by your own understanding of loveAnd to bleed willingly and joyfully.
