We all need more love
than we can ever get,
and the more we love,
the more the insatiability increases.
So why keep on loving, then,
when it never pays?
When your prostitution is gratis,
when the feedback always comes too late,
when ingratitude is love's ultimate reward,
and you can not even save your soul
from getting raped?
That is the question.
You just go on until you fall,
for there is nothing else to do.

Love simply and magnificiently IS. It is like the air we breathe--it exists and we helplessly need it to survive. And, with each breath we take it becomes vital to our lives. That is why we do it...we need it.
I love this thought provoking text Christian.

or not other reason worth doing it for christian. Love is addictive for sure and impossible to define, but we poets just keep trying....smiling at you, Tai
