A modern sonnet about nonpossessive love.
Warm thanks to Rutger Hauer for featuring this and the poems of other great writers in his Soapbox Poems section. I hope it helps in some small way to promote his effort to ease the suffering of AIDS victims in the Caicos Islands and raise awareness of disenfranchised people. See the link below this poem if you'd like to help.

Of course I love you! Is that not clear as day?
I just don't feel that love is stable ground
On which to base the dream of a pursuit
The climax being but a haughty laugh.

So let me love you gently from afar
Without a need to selfishly acquire
Without convincing you what I am worth
For knowing mine already is enough.

It is a given that if you were mine
That I would treat you better than the rest
But men, appreciation do not fire
It is infatuation that they crave.

So though I love you more than dignity
My dignity preserved is more than naught.

Rutger Hauer's Starfish Association

Brilliantly written poem. Love the ending!
Reviewed by Glen Lovelace 5/14/2003
Void me of love...sadder than anemic strains;
Void me of love...sadder than anemic strains:
Harder than a blood clot,
Bluer than varicose veins!

Fill me with love...wholesome as a mandala;
Fill me with love...wholesome as a mandala:
Joyful as nativity,
Playful as an orchestra!

Part of I-MAGE HEART's Blues (Pgs. 49-51).
