February Lovers

Love recognizes no barriers
it jumps hurdles,
leaps fences
penetrates walls
to arrive at it's destination
Full of HOPE

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, the day we are supposed to let our loves know how much they mean to us. Sometimes we buy them flowers, get them pampered, purchase that expensive gift, or do that sexual trick that we save only for special occasions O_o.. Love is a many splendorous thing, but love isn't always hearts and roses.I wish to share with you my all time favorite love stories. Some are from myths, some are fictional, some are true, some are so awe inspiring that they change the laws of the land.  I will highlight loves that showcase the good, the bad and the ugly side of this thing called love.

There are many tales in which we grow up with which tell us, how to love, whom to love, and what love looks like, myths, legends, or our own family love stories, I wish to share as many as I can think of.

Here are a few I will be covering, if you know any others, leave a comment, and I will share them:

  • Tristan and Isolde (the real tale, not the Hollywood version)
  • Isis and Osiris (Aset & Asar)
  • Psyche and Eros
  • Echo and Narcissus
  • Cleopatra, Julius Cesar, & mark Anthony
  • Mr & Mrs. Loving ~ Post Here
  • Dr King & Coretta Scott King
  • Malcom X & Betty
  • Aphrodite & Hepaestus
  • Hades & Persphone
  • Zeus & his many lovers
  • Orpheus & Eurydice
  • Oedipus
  • Paris & Helen
  • Becuma & King Cunn
You only need to turn on the TV to Snapped to see the bad side of love or any true crime show to see that many times that feeling of love can go very very wrong. Some of the fables, can be seen as warnings or a what not to do post.
Take these tales as you see it
Be Blessed
