The Guidelines Poem by ONElia AVElar

The Guidelines

Rating: 3.8

As long as you can,
try to stay
in the range of my heart
my most tender sensor.

Please, avoid contact
with the cold mind,
that crucifying inquisitor,
my narrow, powerful censor.

Try to be more often
in direct touch with my skin
a perfect soft mediator,
in parley between mind and heart.

Indeed, to keep love glowing it must be constantly caress! A 10.

What a lovely set of rules to follow - there would be no divorces if all lovers followed them. I enjoy your play on words, always meaningful, and the way you state your insights and truths so succinctly yet so gracefully.

Simply stated appeal to physical senses before falling foul of rationality - and there is a history of wisdom in that. The idea of connecting through touch is the most basic and enduring. Rgds, Ivan
