Lovers come & go but love
is not so diffident. It
never looks for escape routes
or wants to be held against its
will. No balled fist will keep
ephemeral feelings of love
from falling through fingers.
Love keeps its hand open wide.
Love is the only word that never
needs to be heard in order to be
present. Anyone who ever has to
close his fist to hold onto a feeling,
is not holding love. Someone once asked
Eartha Kitt if she’d be willing to
compromise for love & her laugh
became the shot heard round the
world because she knew that love
never makes you less of yourself.
Only more. Always. More. Only love.
Peace & Love,
