A Teacher's Lesson

To me you are more than just a teacher.

To my heart you are more than just a lover.

To my mind you are more than just a human.

To my intelligence, you are more than just matter.

To my soul you are more than just an indvidual.

You are inside me.

You are of me.

You are me.

This you will never know,

& this I will never tell.

What you are to me,

you will never know.

What I am to you,

I will never know.

I shall use the secret,

To unravel this secret.

I shall admire you in secret,

I shall mentally lust you in secret.

In the arena of nothingness we shall later gather.

In the field of Earth we shall now ponder.

Ponder, what is all the pretence about.

Ponder, why 2 souls cannot reunite as one.

In you, I will defy all morality.

In you, I will accept all sensuality.

That is the time we no longer will appear so separate,

That is the time I await with gaping breath.

Teacher, you've taught all, the academics of life.

Teacher, you've yet to be taught, to love with all your life.

Open your heart, & accept this lesson.

Close your mind, & propose no cynical question.

To be a teacher of a student is of great virtue,

But to be a student of that very student is nothing,

but a guaranteed trip to eternal wisdom.

    All very natural. OK in private, I guess. I understand what you are saying (I'm a teacher myself!) . You'll muse about this poem later on in life. That's life! !
