currently, body and soul
control lost to illusion;
divinity divining, dividing delusion
directing hands of fate
or falling me from faith,
body leaning in
bending to all beckoning.
Was it I who let go
of love’s hand or had fate decided so?
Was there a choice,
considered, consecrated, a confession
would I, could I be called up for blame?
In letting go,
I fell to freedom,
funny how freedom drops you,
from the knot undone and I come undone,
at a loss, undefinable or redefined?
Partially salvageable, this time.
Selfishness slipping into single state
celibate, (sold a lot)
with no one to consider,
to hold, to cherish, to love.
What is love when you lay alone?
Where does love lay when you are alone?
Alone, love is where there are no more lies.
