It all took its toll on me.
I take care to not damage anyone’s reputation, but love harnessed me.
Love took me by my hair and led me to the dance floor.
I shook in perspiration and the thrill of it all.
I announced to all that love has come and found me.
I am the predecessor of my nonchalance with the wine makers.
I have no shame in what I share with God.
He tells me to point to the arrow of despondency.
I claim the Universe Supreme.
I count my many stars.
I have been anointed and disappointed to no end.
I dwell well in large spaces.
I know no other recourse but to be in love.
I have my mischievous ways.
Love is a power.
It is the power that fuels my misguidedness.
It is meaningful and ordinary.
It is magnificent and merciful.
