I knew little about love?
Well, that wasn’t true.
I know a lot about love.
I’ve seen it.
I’ve seen centuries and centuries of it.
And it was the only thing that made
watching your world bearable.
All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate.
Made me want to turn away
and never look down again.
But to see the way that mankind loves.
I mean, you could search
the furthest reaches of the universe
and never find anything more beautiful.
So, yes, I know that
love is unconditional.
But I also know it can be unpredictable,
unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable
strangely easy to mistake for loathing.”
