Love's Ghost

How do you touch the
Intangibility of an unfeigned love –
When it is so attached
To physicality's ghost?

And when does that love
Learn not to breathe –
The air of utter completeness
Through its empty grasp?

Just when does the heart
Learn of acceptance –
Of the impossibility of
Such a perfect rapture?

How do you release a
Spirit that refuses to let go –
That which the mind 
Has joined its force?

And does the fire of 
Such a love ever extinguish –
Or does it continue its dream
For a tangible ghost?

    Love is such a strong emotion, I think its because it tacks on so tightly to our memory and has so much time spent on it, it stays with us with such strong hold. Your words capture the essence of this well, easily related to, lovely read.
