    What can we bring,
    to the altar of each other's sacrifice?

    You say- Let us be one.
    One mind,
    One thought,
    One in unity.

    But first there must be death.

    Let us immerse ourselves
    in the search for each other
    then rise in the vision of our possibilities

    Let us come before the CREATOR
    with our questions and our tears,
    our hopes and our fears-
    Ask HIM to bless us,
    bless the fruit of our loins,
    bless the foundations of our home.

    Are you willing?
    More to the point, are we able?

    Forget what they told us about love,
    it's all a trumped up fable,
    it ain't a feeling,
    so let's skip what we feel-
    for what does it matter if we 'feel' love
    but are not love?

    I must become, you must become-
    the thing we desire most-
    we must become love then overcome lust-
    and know that when we least feel love
    we must hold each other and look past the obvious-

    This is all about us-
    Not you, not me, not any of our families.

    Bring your sacrifice,
    I already got mine.

    when you really love though, it's more than a feeling, it's quintessential.
