Lost in 'Love'

Draw a circle on a blank page and tell me what you see.
Now slip that page into an empty book, somewhere near the end and close it.
The book doesn’t have a title does it?

No pictures.

Flip through the blank pages, slowly.
Make sure you take the time to feel the emptiness on each and every page.
Don’t worry you won’t need too much light.

Aha! There’s the circle!
Glad you finally found it aren’t you?
Look at it.
See how it starts over there, goes all the way around and comes back again.
Look at it again
and again
and again.

Are you still excited about finding the circle?
Why? You knew the book was blank didn’t you?
What else did you expect to find?

It’s getting late now, you need to leave.

Give me my book back
That circle you drew doesn’t belong to you, and neither do those pages.
How can they, it was my idea wasn’t it?
All you had to do was press hard enough to really make a mark.

Tonight, you will leave me with this book,
this circle
that you drew for me.
You will walk out into the night and see the stars.
And I’ll be here where you found me,
‘reading’ again.
