THAT BANAL WORD, "LOVE"

So three weeks ago, I'm with two of my friends and one of
      them asks, "what is love to you?" I paused for few seconds
      before giving my answer (chill, I'll mention it later). Thing
      is, in those few seconds, the word, "love" flashed in my mind
      as experiences I had been through_ people I know (or knew)
      had been through also and not as a term as I had been asked.
      I had paused to compose those experiences in my own words...

   
       The thing about a banal  word is that alongside,
      it gets out of line. Ironically,the word, "irony" is
      also both banal and out of line(as in the case of, "it's an
      irony how blacks can keep locks) for Christs' sake our
      natural hair  should be locks!
   
        Truth is I have made several attempts to complete this
      Post and at those times, I encountered a certain inbalance
      with my phone memory.
   
            Yeah, I replied my friends' question
      with, "the younger me believed love was simply a romance
      novel tale_ the hero and heroine fight off the attrction at
      first, then they fall in love, they encounter the "lovers'
      fight" and finally they realize they cannot do without each
      other... Presently," I continued, "I do not believe the
      hey-I'm-so-into-you-my-heart-skips-two-beats-per-second Love
      exists. I do however believe love can be found after awhile..
   
      Okay, let's clear the air before I explain my reply that day.
      Any conservative reading this and already concluding that I'm
      probably a bored ass individual

need balance

there's some beauty in darkness:
something interesting about
the way the air would heavily light
an irony of perfect juxtaposition. there's some beauty in ugly:
something intriguing about the
huge grotesque scars that
seem to never want to go away. there's some beauty in evil:
un peu de la purité in
the heart of a condemned man,
an innocence buried beneath a blanket of
bottled up emotions. these little beauties we
choose to neglect
aren't they the very things that
make living bearable? who would be good without the existence
of evil?
who would be beautiful without ugliness?
or what story could ever be told without scars? need beauty and ugliness,
need scars and healing oils,
need good and evil,
need all the balance to remain
steady and sane in this
crazy crazy world. need balance:
then imbalance to
balance the human equation
now and again.
