love is !


Impossible to hide or run away

The invisible cord that joins us together throbs unwaveringly

Fleeing is not an option as the bond is beyond our control

It was made many lifetimes ago between our souls


We suffer from physical constraints that

If given power bring fear into the purity of our union

But our tie remains strong, luminous and alive



In my naivety, I shared too much

Sure of you, sure of our love

Forgetting the fears and doubts of those

Who cannot feel the pulsing force that breathes between us


Nor understand the evidence

Of our need for each other

In this lifetime and the next

For eternity…


Last night I traversed the desert

Tracked by the dark trepidation of terror

expelling our love with its obscurity

groping desperately for the familiar warmth and throb of you


Please forgive me for the moment’s doubt

That stung your heart disbelievingly

I want never to pain you, for your pain is mine

Our love is the strength that banishes all that is not.


With the dawn, the familiar feel of our union in my belly is back

Fear conquered and a newfound animal-like instinct

To protect our love, for only we can grasp the

Deep need for it to penetrate our skins and become sacredly real


Without the fear that was not mine

Heart to heart for infinity in timeless love

Across space and time, we will dance together

Forever, the gypsy and the merchant


Our physical lives know not of each other’s worlds

You with ..’and sons’ after your name, a solid base

That traverses generations, a wife and family, home and

Social standing.


Me, a butterfly with a damaged wing, my family a mish-mash of

Cosmic beings, met and loved along the way

No fixed estate, rootless and free

I wait for the universe to point out the route…again


But I feel no worries in these divergences

The world is small and our love knows no boundaries

My heart commits to you and the precious moments

We will share, suspended in time and space.


We can nourish a love that flies free from day to day worries

Unattached from contracts and dues

That wraps itself solidly, momentarily around us

Strong enough to traverse the oceans until the next space opens in time.


I love you!
