Being In The Density

sharing space
with another
honestly
requires more than love

it’s a willingness
to let go
of one’s shield
diligently erected

a wanting
to feel the richness
of another’s essence
perhaps damaged

a deep need
to be enmeshed
on all the levels
partners wish to be seen

it’s a pact
for the happiness
of the other
in this dance of two beings

  1. Lovely poem. The line that really caught me was “It’s a pact for the happiness of the other.” So true and yet still rare. So many people who “chase” love want it for the wrong reasons. “If I get her then I’ll be happy.” Never considering the “other’s” happiness.

    Thanks for sharing.

      1. Your beautiful words express this so wonderfully. I’ll make a point of swinging by at the weekend, tell the statue that it is a source of inspiration x
