Looking down


How could I else than care for you,
since the responsibility of love
is never to desert the loved one
but to care and tender infinitely
or at least as long as you are able to.
No matter what the snake-pits of your past
may offer, I will certainly indulge in them
to help you out of any mess
that stands between us and our love.
If there is anything that I was not afraid of,
it was the worst and the most challenging of dangers,
our own enemies within, the abyss of the unknown,
which is ever there and lurking,
waiting to engulf us and commit us to perdition,
which temerity you ever must remain aware of
so as never to be taken by surprise
by anything less pure and beautiful
than the perpetual phenomenon of love.
