    Inner struggle
    Between 2 halves
    The Light of Love
    Versus
    The Dark side of Love
    Both needed
    Yet who gains the upper hand?
    How many of us really know
    What true Love is?
    How many of us really care?
    After all
    Do we experience Love or Lust?

    Dark Bishop -
    Most of us spend our lives
    Struggling with the pains of Love
    Love gone wrong
    Misplaced Love
    False Love

    Folks don’t want Love anymore
    We want the physical
    That’s it
    It’s all about the sex
    The late night booty call
    Who’s gonna take a trip downtown?
    How freaky can you get?
    Yeah we lust
    We have no Love
    Thereby invoking the wrath
    Of Love’s Avenging Angel

    Bishop -
    Yet the Light of Love
    Has a way of piercing the Darkness
    Just when you thought you could never Love again
    Love finds you
    That man or woman
    Who Loves you for who you are
    Who kisses your soul
    Before even touching you physically
    Who stimulates your mind
    And invoke images
    Of eternal companionship
    True Love has a way of finding you
    Sticking by your side
    Through the rough times
    Crying when you cry
    And sharing your laughter
    This is the purpose of Love’s Favorite Son

    Dark Bishop -
    Yes but how many have been lead astray
    By their Love who does all of the above
    And yet still backstab you
    When they get tired or bored?
    Tipping around on you
    When its He-man or She-ra passes by
    How many will sleep with your boy or your girl
    While they continue to romance your socks off
    Having their cake and eating it too?

    Bishop -
    True Love claims the heart
    It doesn’t come without risks
    For to never take a risk at Love
    Leaves you at risk of never being Loved
    Love can forgive when a harsh and hurtful word is spoken
    Because unlike lust it’s not physical
    Love hides a multitude of faults
    Love will let you see the good in all
    Yet Love will also teach you how to be careful

    It’s up to each individual
    To embrace the Path of Love that’s right for them
    Who is called upon more?
    Love’s Favorite Son
    Or
    Love’s Avenging Angel?

    The controversy continues….

    This is similar to my Inner Debate series that I have been writing....I think all of us at some point have parts of us that tug at each other....

    Bishop love is a true emotional state of mind
    yet love can be blind to that point
    yes some in a mass of bliss just to hit it
    while others r in da heart of compassionate love
    indeed da souls feel da bliss as they romance
    but one may break away for play at any cost
    yes we r torn between true love & lustful love
    yes we yet know what love is
    when we rush into a corner to have sex
    or just a quick hit and spend that time to make love
    but after that then what ????
    indeed our many many earth peoples has lost da true
    meanning of love and many many knoweth of pure love
    da battle of love continues .........wit many unanswers ?

    Very insightful Bishop...
    Something to defintely think about, but off hand I would say that we all look 4 that special someone, but sometimes we pick the wrong people 2 fall in love with. But trust me when it is right, and you truly find that real love; one 2 share your all with, it will far outweigh and dismiss every other feeling in the past that u thought was love.

    Lust is only an infatuation... a self-serving feeling of a person who is not truly genuine and who is only living 4 the moment.

    Which one do we choose in life?
    I choose love....

    truely we all at some point want true love in life
    but lust comes to play by what we see and hear
    yes i most def want true love coz that's all i have
    to offer in return so many peoples get caught up
    in da myth of passion thats not of love but lust
    and we get lost our hearts feel thats the way to be
    so many know love yet so many can't find it.......$R

    Oh Bishop what can I say!

    I feel guilty for being happy as I read of your paradox.
    But even a vet like me can still be out foxed.
    I waited for love and it finally came to me.
    Unfettered, complete and just for me.
    Sometimes it's a gray area that we still struggle
    through, "Do you really love me, Do I really love you"!
    Or is it really that I love the things that you do?
    The age old question like what is the meaning of life.
    Some of us will know the answer when we choose our husband or wife. But this I know to be true for me and for you...
    Don't waste your time on anyone who will not waste time on you!
    All my love and may peace abound, and for someone like you soon true love will be found...

    PS. Tell me who hurt you I still got one can of whoop *** on my shelf!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
    LOVE IS ALL AROUND YOU...JUST LOOK!:kiss:

    the dualality of man is so complex
    what's next in our evolution
    maybe the solution
    pollution of the heart
    can be confusing from the start
    non-stop ice like k-mart
    24/7
    they say art
    reflects the soul
    like light from a tower
    in the dark
    as lifes serfs embark
    to finally see the sunshine
    truely divine
    maybe in time
    i'll get there
    until then
    antennas up and aware
    while i sludge through the mud
    in this living nightmare

    so many people in here...
