The Devil or “Great Serpent” has no desire for Gold I assure you.

It’s like, “Yo Check your self, what does the low one truly desire?”

Love, in more ways than one. ⁂

“I believe
in love at first sight
but I will always believe 
that the people
we love
we have loved before.
Many, many, many times before
and when we stumble
through grace and circumstance 
and that brilliant illusion of choice
to finally meet them again, 
we feel it faster
each time through.
The one glance 
that set life alight
is two sets of two eyes
staring through the layers
of lifetimes and stolen glances
and first kisses and hands held;
the brace against the weight 
and unrelenting tide
of waiting.
I believe
in love at first sight
but am not burdened with the misconception
that it’s a first sight
at all.” 

― Tyler Knott Gregson
“You see the first thing we love is a scene. For love at first sight requires the very sign of its suddenness; and of all things, it is the scene which seems to be seen best for the first time: a curtain parts and what had not yet ever been seen is devoured by the eyes: the scene consecrates the object I am going to love. The context is the constellation of elements, harmoniously arranged that encompass the experience of the amorous subject…

Love at first sight is always spoken in the past tense. The scene is perfectly adapted to this temporal phenomenon: distinct, abrupt, framed, it is already a memory (the nature of a photograph is not to represent but to memorialize)… this scene has all the magnificence of an accident: I cannot get over having had this good fortune: to meet what matches my desire.

The gesture of the amorous embrace seems to fulfill, for a time, the subject’s dream of total union with the loved being: The longing for consummation with the other… In this moment, everything is suspended: time, law, prohibition: nothing is exhausted, nothing is wanted: all desires are abolished, for they seem definitively fulfilled… A moment of affirmation; for a certain time, though a finite one, a deranged interval, something has been successful: I have been fulfilled (all my desires abolished by the plenitude of their satisfaction).”

It’s like, “Yeah that’s why I don’t like hockey…brings back violent memories.” 🤣🤣🤣
Promise? 🤣🤣🤣

“Love is a Promise”

“Those true eyes Too pure and too honest in aught to disguise The sweet soul shining through them.”

“I didn’t know you would be here last night, but you were. We can’t fight fate.

Instead, we must accept that fate has given us a special opportunity.”

“Kiss me,” he says, drunk and foolish.

“Kiss me until I am sick of it.”
