Time passes frenetically in the bustle of a greedy world, but within our realm, only softness and sweet words reside. Not wanting to open the door to allow the din outside to enter, we pause. Knowing we must eventually meet the face of reality, perhaps at some halfway point.....we hesitate at altering our present direction. Reveling in the glow transmitted from our very depths, we cling in serence contentment.
As the thirsty seek the quenching rain or a scholar quests for knowledge, we too sought and found the nourishment to sate our lonely souls.
Love does not change who we are, it merely enhances us and gives up permission to abandon the restraints we place upon ourselves. Alone we exist, together, we flourish
Practical purpose we know is real
But it has no bearing on how we feel
A mansion will echo to a lonely heart
Is a poor man richer, or not as smart?
If a pauper dwells with love in life
Then the loveless kings live alone with strife.
