Living in Paradox

December 13, 2008

Wow…. Just Live in the Tension…

Batter my heart, three-person’d God, for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp’d town to’another due,
Labor to’admit you, but oh, to no end;
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captiv’d, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly’I love you, and would be lov’d fain,
But am betroth’d unto your enemy;
Divorce me,’untie or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you’enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.  – John Donne 

 

Recklessly abandoning all thoughts of my control, trust is never thought to cost more than the rescue of my soul, You, You are mad with love and only you make sense, and with love you are intoxicating to the brim.

I have no problem  laying down my problems at your feet, but I am just not sure about giving up my dreams to someone like you,  Oh Madman Divine, My darkest nightmare, you’re the only Light in sight.

And You are the empitome of unpredictability, and to be honest with You, You scare the hell outta me.

I have no problems laying down my problems at your feet, but I am just not sure about giving up my dreams to someone like you, Oh Madman Divine. And my darkest nightmare is You’re the only Light in sight.

-Lyrics from a song by one of my best friends, Zach Lycans
