Our Passions Run Together


Our passions run together
Like two horses held in tandem
By a fever-fashioned harness.

The marvellous intrudes upon
Desire, merging with our senses
To achieve a rare perfection.

         Poised on a pinnacle,
         Lifted out of time,
         We relish our arrival.


The dream evaporates as mere
Events rush in; reluctantly
We yield to their insistent pace.
