Passion Pays, Not Patience

Of all that is free in life
there's one that stands out
passion without any strife
that's what it's all about

Take patience and passion
and mix the two together
until they part in fission
neither now the aggressor

In total harmony they meet
patience adding temperance
for'bearingly giving us mete
now loving without hinderance

    hi Andrea in some cultures they believe the most intense sexual encounters are those that combine patience and passion and will spend two or more hours in stimulation before joining together. A force indeed lol ty for reading Shadow x smile
