Enlarge poem

This poem is about the (sometimes) fleeting nature of romantic love, which in its stage of infatuation can awaken and deeply excite the soul. The poem is filled with images of entangled hands, inseparable lips and enticing words. But there’s also a tangible layer of fear looming, the fear that this state will vanish as quickly as it appeared. The poet uses movement language to convey impermanence of romantic love.
