The first act of love

The first act of love
is human nature
to seek a metaphysical union,
to love another soul,
the eternal search
for unity, of two together;
desire to be complete
confused by centuries
of Plato, courtly love,
religion – guilt.

Colliding with paper,
pens spark thoughts
that coffee won’t
sustain the heart
when words forget
all about you.
