i am alive

love can lie to the naked eye we deceive ourselves and know not why the things we hear should kill a love make us call ourselves liars is what love does the truth can be so inconvenient forcing a heart to be lenient when rage and anger should over flow but that would upset the peace that we know this fear we have of losing beauty this uncontrollable urge to force the unity when all the tools of love have been exhausted and the only thing left is to admit, you lost it. when it's all done and through and when the self regains it's respect for you when all the embarrassment and self loathing has left your are stronger in that respect there is strength to be found in being a reject learning a lesson others have yet to learn having been through the fire i may never again burn having a message of how to survive how i fought my greatest enemy myself. and yet i am still alive.

I feel your words so much tonight. Thank you for sharing such a profoundly beautiful piece of your work, I appologize for the past reflections of myself, with God all things are possible, we remain clay in His hands, and we all learn in various ways. I love your way, always striving to do the right thing, and I respect you so much for that. Left you a soupmail~ much love, Lucinda

If everything is imperfect in this imperfect world, love is most perfect in its perfect imperfection. Well done.

And yet, though love burns us we return to partake of the flame. Are we unable to learn or is the fire irresistible? I think you will burn again, the passion is there!
