    You Can't Turn It Off

    4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects...

    No love is safe. It's uncommon too fall in love fast with the right one. If you want a loaded gun don't buy one just fall in love and get used. There's you're loaded gun.
