Real Love

Love intervenes
Love confronts
Love faces
Love engages
Love speaks
Love does not scheme
Love does not make people or relationships a means to an end
Love does not reduce to make controlling easier
Love does not control to justify hate
It is easier to control than it is to love
Love does not make idols out of unsuspecting subjects
Love does not objectify
Love lets go
Love encircles
Love breaths life
Love forms
Love allows
Love trusts
Love is vulnerable
Love subjectifies
Love softens the broken edges
Love asks us to face the broken edges
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love leads gently
Fear cannot remain in love
Love gets real
