Living Beyond Love

Living behind a bubble glass of lies and
dreams I pretend everything will be ok, not
realizing the reality will hit me square
in the face. Shock fills me, the void is empty
and cannot cradle my heavy heart.
Friends? Acquaintances? Really?
Friends on the internet sometimes
yes, but really? I guess one could
say that is true. I’ve met in person
a few. It’s the meeting, the hugging
the laughing, the interchange
of thoughts and ideas that complete
the cycle of friendship. I am sad
that some friends are distant when once
they were warm in my heart as I was for
them. Then I ask where does my strength
lie? In the mighty dollar, the mighty job,
the mighty faith. Faith gets the battle to
win or loose in the face of loss of job,
friends, warmth and the substance that
sustains one. Faith gives you the direction
not to lie down and quit but to rise in
adverse situations. But then Love?
Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest
of these is love. Where is love when
it is lost, forgotten, torn from your hearts,
beaten down, betrayed and then I am
at fault. Where is the beaten rhythm of
love, beyond our on limited love? Is love
conditional if it is love? Does love have
strings attached if it is love? Does love
hold you close and keep you warm even
when you did wrong? And does love forgive?
And maybe it is One person beyond my finite
mind, limited thoughts and ideas that can only
be traced to 8 inch space hanging in the clouds.
I am despaired without hope and lost without faith
and dieing without love.

Artist's Description

Love where do we find and can we hold it, share it. Or, does it come from the source of all sources, I have to believe yes – One – God. Even if you don’t believe He is, He is… Can you tell me if you believed there was a purple rock with dots that didn’t not exist, one would have to search the entire universe to make that statement so. I admittedly struggle with God’s love and where it finds me.
