The Paradox of Love

Hunger is the most important thing we know...the first lesson we learn. But hunger is easily satiated. There is another force; a different kind of hunger. An unquenchable thirst that cannot be extinguished. Its very existence defines us...makes us human. That force? Love.

That love, is the one force that cannot be explained nor broken down into a chemical process. It is the beacon that guides us back home when no one is there and the light that illuminates our loss. Its absence robs us of all pleasure and our capacity for joy. It makes our nights darker and days gloomier. But where we find love, no matter how wrong, how sad, or how terrible, we cling to it. It feeds on us...and we feed on it. Love is our grace. Love is our downfall.
