    i speak of Love
    Gods love
    the love of God
    which is love...

    i speak of love
    noting NOT what it is
    but many of the things its not...

    i speak of love
    and it's infinite supply
    giving everything
    expecting nothing

    i speak of Love
    and the challenge
    to meet it...
    eye to eye
    nakedly
    trustfully

    speaking of Love...
    did you realize
    the "challenge"
    was built by the matrix?

    i speak of Love
    falling to my knees
    crying
    when i think of what we've done to it
    dressed it up..
    called it Valentine..
    lusted in its name..
    conditioned it..
    crucified it..

    i speak of Love
    inspired to rise
    go the distance
    blindly
    toward it's light

    I spoke of Love
    I spoke of God
    I spoke of the Love of God

    let those with three ears hear...


    It is written..

    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

    love is patient
    love is kind
    it does not envy
    it does not boast
    it is not proud
    it is not rude
    it is not self seeking
    it is not easily angered
    it keeps no record of wrongs
    Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth
    it always protects
    always trusts
    always hopes
    always perseveres

    1 Corinthians 13:1-7

    "Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned" (Song of Solomon 8:6-7).

    you know i'm watching
