spark tha L

"All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope. All the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect who might be searching for us."-Anonymous

The other day -1- asked me "what is love?"

Here was my response...

love is love. love is great. love sucks. love hurts. to give love and have it reciprocated is a special feeling. you never know love until you open your heart. you must tear down the fortress that you've built around your hear to let love in. love is beautiful. love can be tough. love can be mistaken for lust. some folk are in love with being in love. love knows no color. love is love. i love 2 love

I've got a couple of questions for you today.

Who do you love?

What do you love?

Where do you love?

WHERE...In the realm of the spirit, but manifested here on earth

WHY...It's what I was created to do.
