Estrangement



The strangest situation has developed of our love
that no one could have had a notion of.
You are all mine, and I have never loved you more,
although you have done everything to alienate yourself
by a development that could but be described
as something of an alien labyrinth to wonderland
where nothing any more is what it seems to be.
Still, my love, you are the same,
the world has changed and been turned upside down,
but our love was only fortified thereby,
and passion has been reinforced most thoroughly
into a more established fusion than before;
so anything might happen, so it seems,
disasters may occur and shock the world,
and our love will only be the stronger
for all trials of estrangement.

I like this, especially the kind of volta at line 8, and the iambic pentameter of line 9. The conception reminds one rather of Matthew Arnold's "Dover Beach."
