410 Seeking [27 May 2001]

I seek love
in all its entirety
from the passion in a kiss
to the heights of pleasure
and the look in his eyes
but I do not seek it
like wealth or status
far deeper inside is the need
far, far from those petty things
I seek the first bloom
to the end
the withering and detachment of petals
and beyond
‘til my heart beats no more
I seek that world of two
where he looks at me
knowing what I may be thinking
all I want it love
to have the emotion
coursing through my veins
his touch all I’ll ever need
but until what I seek
is within my hands
I shall not stumble
I will not fall
each day I live
beautiful in its soul
and the next day after
pregnant with possibilities
I will love myself
as is only right
so that my love for him
is true
