Whoever you are, holding me now in hand,

Without one thing, all will be useless,

I give you fair warning, before you attempt me further,

I am not what you supposed, but far different.


Who is he that would become my follower?

Who would sign himself a candidate for my affections?

    WW had such courage. I think that one part of me knows that we transcend time, space, and seperation and yet the rest of me screams that it is forbidden to speak such things.

    I think that at some level you must be the only candidate for your affections. Naturally we seek another to reflect our love, appearing as we do to be only a small fragment of existence. Yet how can we be satisfied by a fragment?

  2. Mossy Says:

    Worse yet, a fragment that thinks us merely a fragment.

  3. Mossy – We seek another to indulge in passion and inspiration in order to flourish our lives and taste the superhappiness,
    I think “Love” is the only thing could give us hope for a better life and we carry on just because we have romantic ideas and dreams about who would be the candidate for our affections.

  4. Mossy Says:

    “Superhappiness” That is a nice term.

    Yes I think that it would be hard to carry on if we did not have hope of love.
