Of 'Lust' And 'Love'


Life!
To take me ther;
Where is is guided with peace and joy.

Joy!
To change the whole world with peace, unity and love.

Life!
With a separation between the lines of 'lust' and 'love'.

Low, slow!
Man is imperious and, woman is feeble.

Son, soon!
Fully soaked after the rainfall.

Pen, hen, ten, den!
My love is pure like an image in the moonlight.

Love!
Like the shining of the stars.

Adult, adultery!
Led by the lust in you.

Start, startled!
Gesture, structure, picture, adventure, puncture, future;
Living between 'lust' and 'love' on this earth.

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
