Bound Irretrievably

Love…
…is intertwined with life like an equation is to math: a reaction is to chemistry: like color is to art: like you are with me. It is there you will stay, bound irretrievably with my heart for all time.

From “Metamorphoses” by playwright/director Mary Zimmerman

die the
moment
my love
dies.
Let me
not outlive
my own
capacity
to love.
Let me
die
still
loving,
and so,
never
die.
