The Nature of our Life

Like the worm


It came unnoticed

 


hidden so well

 

in the apple of our desire

Now,

 

the fruit has ripened

 

and we can't change things


happened

 

so long, long  time

 

before

 

In meetings of delight


and tender passion

 


We shared everything

 

Except that farther vision

 

Where we have died

 

each other lost

 

Wandering now in separation


Following directions given

 

a long. long time ago
