Mingle her essences together inside you

If I say she is outside me,
I deny her wild activity
on the inside –
this heart, this nervous system,
and the sensual revelations
of pure somatic brilliance.

But if I say she is inside only,
I will burn out of existence,
denying her love-body,
and the precious form 
she has taken
right in front of my eyes.

There is one beloved
who is inside,
and another who is without.
Give everything
to know this union.
And mingle
her essences
inside you.

While the wise ones
will always choose
the beloved within,
I am one of the hopeless –
crazy, mad with love,  
and just too foolish for all that.

If I allow myself to fall
any deeper into this mystery,
I fear I will never return.
And I will miss her terribly.
