totality

in stillness of night
if you persist
in being that close to me;

I will have to find
a way to plunge myself
into your luminous soul

I only believe in totality

You reminded me of a nice conversation between two friends in one of Rand's books 'We the Living'...I liked your 160... merging with the soul..ultimate of existence perhaps..

All or nothing love? That might actually be the best.

Gautami,

Visiting after a long gap as my home PC was not working. Read all current and some old poems. A Gift For You shows the anger so well. Dad, Father, Farther shows deep love between father and daughter. Eternal Enemies, very sound and much needed advice. Within Pages shows deep feelings and so does Totality.

Take care

Love and sex - all or nothing at all. I really think all women feel that way, but some sell themselves out. Your poem captures the true emotion. Thanks, Gay @beachanny

It's either beautiful or stalkerish (yes, that's a compliment - it variable mood(s), depending on the reader). Given the tone of your site, I'll vote for the beautiful.
