experience

experience, it’s claimed

is in the acquisition

tis the kiss, not its meaning

that is the ‘all’ of this world

 

but those who so insist

often seek the comfort of shadows

forms more easily won

they pass through the body cold

 

whatever their amusement

such lips do not linger

there is little in their exchange

to sustain a hungry soul

 

count these distractions many

as the pleasures of youth

till the first of true vision

is at once consumed

 

this is the cost of a true love

that all else compared

is but a hollow dark reflection

of its unparalleled beauty
