The Assassination of Love –

“Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time.”Pablo Picasso

It’s not possible for addiction and love to live together very long before they attack one another. Addiction to self, to substances, to work, to anything, will soon drain from love it’s very life and leave the shell of an empty relationship as evidence of the crime. Love rarely is able to defend itself from such an attack. Tragically the perpetrator isn’t found till long after the crime has been committed.  Many are the deaths love has suffered at the hands of the fiend of addiction. Do your lover a favor, quit now while you still have love breathing between you.

Mr P – Pain my companion

“Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”

Hey Mr P!
I’m so glad to have your acquaintance.
You’ve been by my side through good and bad.
You made sure I always was aware of you following behind me
I’m glad your here, without you, where would I be?
Because of you I’m sharp, on my toes and on guard
Otherwise I would be apathetic, dull, and
lulled to sleep by pleasure
I’m glad your here.
You remind me life is short and
to make sure I enjoy the little things.
You tell me to say I love you
to those close to me.
You make me aware that I need
something greater than myself.
By that, you have led me to spiritual pursuits
which have brought me great peace
in my afflictions.
I don’t wish you to leave,
I’m used to you and I realize
I cant truly love or live without you here.
Mr. Pain, thank you.
