The usage of someone elses body,
For ones own pleasures.
The self gratifying eros love,
That overwhelms the body,
But depletes the soul.
Is there ever a time when it is not taking?
Is there anything one can give to balance the weight of such a beautiful gift?
Life, commitment, one's own self.
Something man tries to capture within the words of marriage vows,
Something that commits even when sickness strikes and poverty destroys,
And cheating and beating implode,
Or the desert and dryness and feelings of being a ghost or being disconnected intercede.
Only commitment which supercedes these is the worthy counterbalance to the physical act of intimacy.
