Unavoidable Craving

Love…
…puts an unavoidable craving toward another into mind, heart and soul; a thirst only the beloved can quench. Even if two lovers abide for only a time that makes their love no less true and real.

American poet and Pulitzer Prize winner Mary Oliver

man_woman_kiss-1To live
in this world,
you must
be able to do
three things:
to love
what is
mortal;
to hold it
against
your bones
knowing
your life
depends on it;
and when
the time comes,
to let go.
