a certain way of being alive

The question of love is one that cannot be evaded.

Whether or not you claim to be interested in it,

from the moment you are alive

you are bound to be concerned with love,

because love is not just something that happens to you:

it is a certain special way of being alive.

Love is, in fact,

an intensification of life,                                                                                             

a completeness, a fullness,

a wholeness of life. 

 

standing-still
