From The Moment of Creation

From the Moment of Creation

From the moment of creation lovers were 
assigned the greatest tasks,
and became the most sought after,

and scored the best seats at the finest events,
and won the best vacations from this world. 

Vacations? Yes, "vacations" from all we are not,
that can then leave one illuminated. 

         "Vacations", that's an interesting word choice, but makes a ton of sense. Vacations from worrying, from doubt, from apprehension can definitely happen in your lover's arms. The world was made for Lovers, and the "task" (though I should probably say "pleasurable adventure") of loving another is undoubtedly the most delightful undertaking. So how do we decide who we fall in love with? Is it because their hand fits perfectly in our own? Or the angelic look on their face as they sleep? Is it because we no longer care about being in "bad lighting" in their presence? That we understand, for the few seconds they kiss us, what it means to be carefree? Is it for the reason Oscar Wilde presented, "they sing a song only you can hear"? What are the notes of this song, the soundtrack that causes someone to fall in love and then ignite like a flame?
         In this new release by Great Caesar, they've done a phenomenal job of portraying that you don't need anyone's approval on who you fall in love with. “If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.” ― Michel de Montaigne

Don't Ask Me Why (2014), Great Caesar
