There are words not written by man. Written on pages not planned or meant for reading...pages cut from astral fabrics, not discernible but in song or in dance or under cover of night with one you hold...dear, this could all be true, these words could be for you. Cut from stone with swords of steel, our flesh, our bone. These are love's words, and their aims are true.
