Love Is Not For the World

We met at the beginning of Time –

As our angels planned,

The architecture was set,

And our breaths guided the rendezvous.


The idyll grew in scope –

The tides of love lashing our rocks,

Universe seemed one,

Time lost its count.


But the eternity did not last long

As the world conspired –

Jealous of our communion,

Burden of love began to ache.


Is not love too beautiful for this world –

To meet it halfway can only diminish it,

Making it a fantasy and not a fact –

A faraway refulgent star in the sky?


Today on the trails I left you behind –

An awkward move,

But I had to leave you,

As I must find my own salvation.
