|Vampires of the Eclipse| ++ |Vampires Then and Now| 800 x 600


The Kiss by F Hayez Everyone has an opinion about love, what it is, what it is not, how, why and when. Everyone, from the breastfed babe to the night creature.

rose Love is as personal, and as universal, as we desire to create it.

For me, love is defined by my Immortal Beloved, Louis, whom I sought for centuries. Louis, my soul, my Eternal Beloved. I see it all in your violet-blue eyes: the past pain of mortality, the current of your deep red blood, the unfurling of our nightshadow future. All of it beats to the rhythm of my love, and yours.

Eve and Louis So gift me with one of your smiles, which starts slow and quiet. Sometimes it remains a slight upturn of your lips, like a crescent. Other times, you shine like the full glory of bright luna. Yes, bend your head of dark hair slightly to one side, and smile, my love, my blood, my heart of hearts.

Eternity is enough time to spend with you. Almost.

I give you everything.

The accents of love are all that is left of the language of paradise.

. . .lovers have a proverbial power of balancing inverted pyramids, going to sea in sieves, and successfully performing other kindred feats impossible to a faithless and unbelieving generation.
--L. Malet

Romeo and Juliet by Sir Frank Dicksee All true love is grounded on esteem.

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.

In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love.
--Marc Chagall

It is better to have loved and lost, than not to love at all.

It is sweet to feel by what fine spun threads our affections are drawn together.

Must love be ever treated with profaneness as a mere illusion? or with coarseness as a mere impulse? or with fear as a mere disease? or with shame as a mere weakness? or with levity as a mere accident? whereas it is a great mystery and a great necessity, lying at the foundation of human existence, morality, and happiness,--mysterious, universal, inevitable as death.
--Harriet Martineau

Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.
--Henry Wheeler Shaw
