    love...per se in and of itself
    by definition...does not last
    but...within the confines as
    defined by "us"...it endures
    as long as we allow it to exist!

    whereas...mortals thereby crown themselves
    foolish as a reminder
    that giving up of themselves...relinquishing
    whatever modicum of control which
    they have convinced themselves..they OWN

    and tumble pell mell...headfirst
    into that unknown abyss
    freefalling into what may hopefully be
    "eternally blissfull"
    at which point...possibly the recognition will be made
    that love...love is for fools!!

    and yet....everyone loves...a lover!!!*

    This IS food for thought...a lot of food honey. Tell your friend that I said thanks for giving you permission to post his poem.

    How have you've been Aaron?
