Love - No 1


Clutching with intensity
What cannot be held

Holding with greedy dissatisfaction
The fabric of our fantasy
While reality requests open hands

Avaricious to fill the emptiness
Of a soul disconnected from itself
Believing ourselves alone
We grasp another disconnected emptiness

Clutching a fantasy
That cannot be held
Devouring another disconnected soul
To find fullness
We name this love

Yet love
Cannot be held
It is a gift given with open hands
From a soul connected to itself
A soul who knows it is not alone

And from its fullness gifts love

  1. You have such wisdom, love cannot be held in desperation and must be given freely. :-)
