Love of My Life

 

 

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”

mantra repeated

 

all argument ended.
