    "we'll make love forever"


    my "eternal" instincts
    cause major disturbances
    within the frailty of my physiology
    and I've found the source
    of my angst
    imbedded in my basic
    psychology...

    for
    I would seek your
    love even absent
    of my skin

    there is no part of
    my soul you
    cannot enter in

    the dust
    I'll become when
    I return to the
    earth

    will blend with
    your soil; we
    shall know
    a re-birth

    you see...

    we touched
    in this lovetime...

    came

    in the
    presence of
    Divinity...


    ...the "shelf life"
    of this beauty
    must needs be...

    infinity

    This project will come to symbolize you like no other! This is the one A...this is the one that your grandchildren will boast about to their friends. YES!! Move over Emily Dickinson...make room for her on the shelf

    you are definitely a messenger...letting the words flow freely from mind to paper in such awsome array....
    sometimes you go so deep, it leaves me sitting here not knowing what to say in reply...
