Quotations About / On:
only means you know
you can't fight everything
when love looks straight into your eyes
return those looks
and your heart will surrender
to feelings never felt before
Let not you be consumed in darkness
ignore the darkness
push it away
see the flowers bloom
crowning illuminated faces
surrendered souls to the Divine Throne
