My heart is beating unsteadily
My ears are peaked straining
My eyes are seeking only you
My hands are beseeching you
My feet only walk towards you
My body only blooms for you
My hunger can be doused by you
My lifeless limbs await thy touch
My head resonates thoughts of you
My dreams are of you and only you
My tongue only utters thy name
My world is dark without thy light
My world is only peopled by you
Inside you, outside you, all around
There is only you, nothing but you
You and only you are in my vision
Be not cruel, remove this division
Breathlessly, forlornly, achingly
My soul seeks total oblivion
Lost, submerged in thy union!!!
My Lord, my God, my love,
My lover, my brother, my sister,
My father, my mother, my son
Whole world is the eternal lover
Thou art the only Beloved of all!!
I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love.
William Blake English, Artist
There are no galley-slaves in the royal vessel of divine love –
every man works his oar voluntarily!
Saint Francis de Sales Swiss, Clergyman
A lover without indiscretion is no lover at all.
Circumspection and devotion are a contradiction in terms.
Thomas Hardy English, Novelist
Though we hear various reports of his existence we can never find the
young wizard who is able so they say to graft the soul of a girl to the
soul of her lover so that not even the sharp scissors of the Fates
can ever sever them apart.
Harry Crosby American, Writer
