It takes a wise eye and strong heart to realize and admit that love is the sweetest poison. It gets in our veins, flows through our minds and seeps into our spirits, embedding its surefooted roots at our core until it is an inseparable part of us, as familiar as our shadows. If only love were as predictable as our shadows – yet, surely part of its mystique is the fact that love is unpredictable, mysterious and forever changing! Love is a multi-player game, a variable tug-of-war between two sides that can bring out both the best and worst of us. It will hurt us, just as it will bring us the greatest joy.
