"escape from...the worldly nonsense...of equitable desires" - love poem for my girlfriend.
With all of its trials and tribulations -
Feeling close to you, as you feel toward me;
We never feel separated by distance or extremes,
A mood and emotion so timely and so predictable
Based on singular trust and unabashed willfulness.
We strive to become even closer,
A oneness only few souls on Earth
Have ever witnessed,
And the most cherished and precise love of all;
A grand escape from all the worldly nonsense
And excitement being consumed
By the eager patrons of equitable desires
And immeasurable profits.
Our goal is everlasting love and peace
For ourselves and our children,
Encompassing this serene appetite
Of lasting fortitude.
