! ! ! Against the Wind


When two people so choose
To join as one
The primary requirement is
Decide to love the beloved.

Then, as happens in love
Two become one in all things
Exclusive, self giving
especially sexually.

And in so doing
The love grows in togetherness
Open to children, raising them
A reward of their uniting.

But what now if the love fails?
Turns one sided and falters?
And the critical departure is decided?
To look for someone else?

And if it happens that the search ends
Upon someone willing and able.
To meet the need of the orher.
And join in erotic bliss?

The happiness newly found thrills
Brings warmth and excitement
Sends the heart a racing
Mind awhirl, body aquiver.

Deeper, wider, bolder, reckless
Necessity drives further coupling.
Drawn by the need for happiness.
Affirmation, complimentarity, libidinous.

But this new joining is filled with tension
Since the love struggles to grow.
And growing is strained.
For living together is amiss.

So the need to be closer
To grow together and love deeper
And go on up to the next level.
Of uniting even with childbirth.

The missing component is the limit
Of a love so good, so true
Bound to the beloved
Struggling to grow with the other.

A critical juncture is met
To continue with the limited but true
Or let go and return to the old
Loveless, drab, lonesome.

However, to let go is to die
And is not the way to go
It is far better to live with the limits
Than to die in the unlimited prison

Of knowing one could have loved deeply
But did not.
