Gentle Geneviève

.

Why can

There not

Be love

Without

Heart break,

The million

Small deaths

Before death?

.

Why must

Joy be

Balanced

By sorrow?

.

Must we

Ascended

Mountains

On the same

Path leading

Home to

The abyss?

.

There is

No safety,

Even in the

Heart of

True love.

.

Respite

Resides 

Only

Beyond

The veil.

.

    Beyond the veil of illusion? is that what you are referring to, the illusion of a separate self from Ditety.

    Or are there more veils of ullusons?!
    I’m sure there must be, because the Sufis’ say that we are all ghosts, apparitions of self, not even human, because thier definition of a human is enlightenment and the rest of these states we are lost in are veils of illusion. To become a human is to become enlightened.
