“Howl” by Florence and The Machine had me intrigued by how the song explores the darker side of love and sex. In the song, love becomes a violent obsession as shown by the metaphor of a werewolf. Love can consume and even turn love into hate. Part of my recovery involves exploring the shadow side to human nature, and making some kind of peace with it. This darkness is a place that I have been to in some of my prior relationships where it started off passionate, and loving then denegrated into a very dysfunctional place. Broken glass can cut our hands yet when it is put together make a beautiful mosiac.
