” Someone told me,
love would all save us
But, how can that be,
look what love gave us,
A world full of killing and blood
That world never came”
Nickleback – Hero
LOVE…the most perverse, twisted, corrupted , craziest, yet highest human emotion that we all yearn for.
It’s the RED ROOM OF PAIN (yes, Fifty Shades) OR PURPLE GRASS EXTREME.
It’s the thing that brings you the greatest joy or causes the most intense pain .
People are willing obsess over it, be driven insane by it, bleed for it, climb mountains for it, slay dragons for it, suffer an eternity of pain just to have a few minutes of love.
It’s the force that governs all humans either destroying them or saving them.
It’s the madness that consumes us all, and the rationality behind it that makes us more human and lift us to greater heights…For love is the drug that can transform the ordinary into the extra-ordinary Love can be true.
“Sin had nothing at all to do with love, real love.” Cathy – Flowers in the Attic
Or love can be corrupted into the image of something that may seem true but is actually a deception….
“…suffice to say that it was love at first sight with us, for it happens that way sometimes.” Corrine – Flowers in the Attic
The trick in life, is to know how to distinguish between LOVE … Real love and the ILLUSION of love. To have love you’ve got to be willing to fight for it … For love is tested until it’s proven to be true.
** The story of Lily and Raymond **
True love has the best of both worlds… “Then, my lover and I will have the best of both worlds, reality firmly under our feet, while we have our heads in the clouds with all our illusions still intact. And the purple grass will grow all around, high enough to reach our eyes.”
Love is the absurd, the ridiculous, it’s trashy, it’s the divine and it’s the reason behind the everything ….mysterious.

I’m sure you can see , that love is the engine behind every plot twist in a Virginia Andrews’ novel and probably every other novel written out there…
Every action is twisted and turns upon itself either from love, or the illusion of it or love betrayed.
What people are willing to do for love, twists and turns everything upside down and inside out to leave us dazed and perplexed trying to make sense of it all. It’s the simplicity of needing to be loved and the complexity of doing anything to be loved – it’s THAT thing that keeps the human story in motion….and it’s the thing that makes us insane but it makes us feel … ALIVE
