There is no doctrine

There is no doctrine

There is no doctrine to love
           no laws no regulations
it has an intelligence all of its own
           it may or not go hand in hand
with desire but it’s never
           subservient it just is
a situation of equals in which
           each other is the destination
or the destiny and one
           in which instants easily flower
into flames of passion
           when eyes and lips lock

Love is active
           and it honours itself
at all times and in all places
           faithful to its hallmarks
generous in its patience
           and tenderly attentive
in its deliberate
           shared permissions—
its absence
           is equally apparent

John Lyons
