To feel, an endless potential…
The afterglow is fine,
like floating upon clouds stilled,
and bodies sigh in release,
thankful for the exhilaration,
the joyful being of life.
Yet lost we may be in feelings,
as there is a sentient knowing lost,
not of love but of gratification,
the experiences we so exalt,
in a physical realm.
What brings uplifting physically
is a powerful drug,
one that has stolen a billion hearts,
and in addiction crushed lives
so completely, there is no return.
We have mind and spirit, flesh and choice,
and how we dictate our lives
the very saving grace
or destruction of our paradigms innate:
how we choose value.
What is delivered in love is far from feelings,
a melding of all body, mind and spirit,
and without it, empty those feelings,
without meaning and therefore value,
we choose an empty life.
Glorious our potential
to feel beyond our meagre wants,
to connect with all life on many levels,
and know what truly matters in this
our journey of struggle.
