JACK O’LANTERN’S JOURNAL:
Is Love not an obvious curse to all who fall by it?
Or perhaps, not even fall –
but LIVE by it.
Recently I’ve been partaking in battle in my head about the comparison of Love & Beauty.
Because, we’ll, quite frankly:
My how simple it is to fall immediately in “love” with beauty!
Perhaps it is not so much a comparison, but a sorting out.
The issue is that I cannot identify the difference between being in Love, and the Beauty that curses you into being in love.
It’s such a strong spell – this CuRsE of Beauty, and so too, Love.
I do not fancy the CuRsE.
Like sexual desire, it is an OFF-BALANCE, and a PEST who thoroughly infests, when unwanted.
I think beings are mostly in love with being in love, no matter the compatible partner.
It is a CuRsE.
It is an off-balance.
Just as Evil, on the opposite side of the scale, is a vicious hex – so too is the Curse of Love, on the other very end of the serpent’s tail.
You must meet in the middle and not be distracted away from seeking yourself;
you must not be distracted by
The Curse of Love & Beauty.
