I Ask Myself

I ask myself
what do I love more,
the object of my passion
or wondrous pleasures
that I feel?

Is he adored
by providing inspiration
to my soul's desires,
joy to give and to receive;
and by fulfilling his dreams,
gratifying my own needs?

If he were to disappear
into the mystery
of dark unknown,
would it be his loss I grieve,
or the lost delight
of eagerly expressing
my emotions?

Would I hold
to unrestrained love,
so the fire keeps dancing,
feeding my inner being
as tears burn my eyes,
maintaining alive a dream?

Or would I allow it to fly free,
treasuring what once was
but is no more,
grateful for life's gift:

The ability to deeply feel.
