11/11 Chasing The Dream.


Beware embracing with fervent desire
a romantic involvement.

It can enmesh worse than netting of steel, and curse
flesh with fire.

Emotion consumes, dictates every movement,
lays bare vulnerability and
exposes raw hearts.

Life on knife-edge of sheer captivation, when started,
can really excite.

It enlightens each thought, yet passion betokens control,
it demands more stimultation that often
bewilders the soul.

Chasing the dream requires taking a hold of the skirt
of reality and flirting
with something akin to voluntary insanity.

It can rattle sensations like a canine shaking a bone.

Vincibility bespeaks depth of personal need, it uncovers
exposure to seeds of proneness.

Love grips so tight it cleaves to the core, yet emotion
augments as it elevates too.

So, does this vigorous vivaciousness, this tempest
of pure implication appeal
dear to you?
