Love is a choice insomuch as you water
the grass that you want to be green.
Most of life goes by with us trying
to be whole before we can love.
The unexamined life is not worth living,
but life without love is life without beauty.
The key to intimacy is to plough through difficulty
and emerge together.
That is not neediness or lack of boundaries
it is divinity in me and you recognizing
the divinity in the other.
