What exactly is love?! Toni Morrison says that it’s one of the most damaging things to human psyche. And I agree. Not because I’m antipathetic, love only presents itself for an immeasurable moment in existence; one I think we are rarely aware of (if it exists at all). And just as this birth of love (not as a feeling or fabric but as a type of energy relative to energy or chemical), it suddenly bursts forth from its beating heart a steady, reaching love lusted hand and limbs as legs, dangling, angled to the direction of self or need. Does humanity by definition then disempower love?! Can we even name a thing we say exists?! Isn’t claiming to have such love in itself counter intuitive to what love is: selfless. I don’t mind defining what energies or chemicals (whatever you wanna call them) as love or light. But, I warn with a wary heart full of limbs to remember that it is often love that is the catalyst to war. Define the war in which ever way best. But you can not have the blessedness of this most sanctified positivity to be experienced, within this human form (as much we know) with out expecting some sort of antithetical resonation to, or possibly from, self or psyche. Ah, to strike a balance with how we love others and how we love ourselves! I’m going to chew on that with these moist, hungry lips that say these words: I love you.
