    Love was my bright star
    My shining sun
    Greeted me at each day's break
    Gave comfort when it was done

    And every wakeful hour
    Til sweet slumber claimed me
    I soared and basked
    In its engulfing rays
    With jubilant glee

    Love molded and shaped me
    And through its awesome energy
    I was metamorphically formed
    Virtually AVIATED within its power
    Gladdened and warmed

    But, now, denied its animating potency
    I am left empty, dispirited.... morose
    Like Icarus plunging to his death....I flew too close

    yes indeed, love will certainly make you soar, and it's demise will certainly cause you to plummet......What did Stevie say? "you took me riding in a rocket, gave me a start, but 'bout a half a mile from heaven, you dropped me back to this cold, cold earth........." Rocket Love.

    Can love be too intense?

    I enjoyed this flow.
    Flying high not afraid to fall.
    Is how to continue living at all.

    Ooooh, Hodee! That's a very good question! I don't have an answer but it's a good one!

    However, I always remember my mother's words, "It's alright to be a fool. You're gonna be somebody's 'fool' in this life. Make it a learning experience. But, don't be NOBODY'S [email protected] FOOL!"

    So, if there's any kind of Love out there that's gonna make me a "[email protected] fool," then, NO THANKS. I don't want it!

    Being filled with so much love can make us feel as though we can be adrift amongst the clouds. The impact of a fall from such heights...tragic. Vividly written.
