A Few Thoughts About Love.

Desire to control is not love.
Nor is the wish to be controlled.
Nor should love be used as an excuse
for the desire to control or be controlled.

Falling in love is what
adolescents do - I did -
Have done.
We live in an infantilising
culture based on immature
emotion and the gun.
Love shoots.  The body
has no record of the mind.
Love offers security, stability
but is anything but stable.
It has the magical ability
to conjure up a life
that seems much stronger than
a condom, life without seep,
firm and focussed like a diving-bell:

but there's just a shallow,
shadow-vision of the deep
and no view at all of what's above.
Trust and respect are worth
far more than love.
