The Prerogative Of Love

9

THE PREROGATIVE OF LOVE (Adapted from Sonnet 147 by Shakespeare) My love, I am so feverish longing still, For your radiation to cure every disease, Feeding my mind on the remedy for all ill, This innate appetite for truth to please. My intellect, the competitor of my love, Angry that his reasonings are not kept, Has derided me, but I now fully approve, My love is my life, though logic except. Reason can mock, my love is all my care, Frantic for truth, more of you I request, My thoughts truly as the madman's are, Random, still it expresses the very best. Reason is so clear, and logic very bright, But my love is mysteriously dark as night! Sonnet 147 is one of 154 sonnets written by English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. This adaptation can best be seen from the perspective of a poet who regards the love he holds for the unintelligible words of the Spirit as an internal battle with human faculty. As malicious intent realizes this love is detrimental to its symbiotic relationship with the human intellect and fatal to its toxicity, it employs every rationality to put an end to the amity, cajoling it as insanity. Eventually, the poet gives up rationale and the unreasonable love consumes all rationalization, sending him to the indescribable bliss of God realization. Romans 10: 6-8 Do not reason in Your heart, "Who shall ascend into the heaven of my fantasies, to bring Christ down from above?", or, "Who shall descend into the abyss of my miseries, to raise up Christ again from the grave?". O You reincarnation of Christ, the word is near You, as close as Your heart so that You can readily and steadily speak it in Your thoughts, that is, the indescribable words of God realization which You speak by faith. John 17: 3 And this is eternal life for You and all mankind whom You represent, that You may attain the only true perfection of God realization, as the reincarnation of Christ whom He has sent!
