Gethsemane (triolet challenge)

We see them in the garden, embraced in Caravaggio's kiss,

Though we are never certain whether betrayal or complicity

Our faith seems stronger for believing in the worst of this -

We see them in the garden, embraced in Caravaggio's kiss

As we in the loves we came to believing each time the bliss,

The divinity of arms and lips, but always then the duplicity -

We see them in the garden, embraced in Caravaggio's kiss,

Though we are never certain whether betrayal or complicity.

Ah thank you for giving me the chance to find/see the painting and read some more about the painting! What the poem brought to mind is that everything happens for a reason then what we understand/ what happens to each and every one of us is another story:) we might be observing one thing but . . .

There seems to be a theme of duplicity (or trickery, or chance) running through these triolets. I wonder why. Is a kiss that complicated?
