First strides in love
so often follow no path
at all, being inclined
to curve, to ascend,
even to descend
as the will of passion
pursues so fervently
the greatest pleasure.

How odd it must seem
as time invariably passes
that the desire to please
becomes subsumed
beneath the need to placate,
for passion’s mightiest
howls fall benign beside
the need for peace.

  1. Beautifully documented, George.
    Two wrongs rarely make a right, so I’ve heard at least. ;)) And when one has howled long and hard with little progress, believing one was righting a wrong, perhaps peace is best exemplified, rather than railed about? Something like that, maybe… :))
