Platonic relationships

We loved each other intensely
almost from the first moment
we first met. Ours was a marriage 
of Ideals, spending hour after 
hour talking and sharing our
opinions on politics and economics
to cooking and reading the latest book.
We thought of ourselves in Utopian 
terms being far more stellar than the
lust of sex. It was as if our minds
were transcendent, reading each
others before we spoke. And when
we did speak it was always very
much about intellectual matters.
We also included spirituality to
share talking for hours from
Genesis to New Age.
