“Because” and “Not Because”



There is love,
And there is…
Love.

One arises from a subject,
And is given to an object,
In response to conditionality.

The other, being subjectless,
Knows no object,
And yet… Blesses all.

One is bundled,
With a thousand desires,
And arises "because of".

The other, Full and Complete,
Shines simply because…
It is Its nature.

The Lover, full of Longing,
Desires to hold The Beloved,
For all Eternity.

Only to find,
In the instant of touching…
That both Lover and Beloved Vanish…

And only Love remains.
