Sometimes you must close your eyes
in order to see
what’s right in front of you
because love is
not available for abduction,
control or dominion.
Love is authentically felt
through all the senses of Spirit.
True lovers don’t hold on to each other
for the morality of being present
but because two essences magnetically
attract to one another
exploding with desire,
and with that thing we
label as “love”
since there is no other word
for the dynamic of devotion.
and the obsessions
are not available
for the grabbing and manipulating.
These affairs of the heart
are there for forming and molding
the better part of our humanness.
No, sometimes it is easier to watch,
to listen, to touch, to judge
and forget that the spirit
knows these lies we have created
to protect the Ego from the stories.
If we look inward
the naked truth shines
and not from the physical intimacy
of our bodies exclaiming a release
for being adorn through infinite emotions.
We are led to believe
in an illusion of ownership,
sexuality, and dependence
that deteriorates the actuality
of what lovers bare
to one another
and to the self.
True lovers don’t go with
the sexual movement of explosion,
the carnal ruling of youth,
but the fluttering of the souls
trying to reunite
after lifetimes of separation
knowing that being apart
is no longer an option
has no beginning or ending.
It simply lives in each single breath
we get to call our beautiful
