Love of My Life came of humble origins, I
might even say “mean”
possibly conceived amongst the swivel racks
of the public library
a mating of Harlequin and Silhouette
but no —
into the mix you must throw in the Gothic twins
Heathcliff and Catherine
their love infernal though not necessarily carnal
fed Love of My Life
til it grew strong enough
to stand front and center.
Til everything – ambition, spontaneity
and love itself
bowed to Love of My Life.
“Love of My Life”
all argument ended.
