the whole world listens when love is spoken of

when i speak of the depths
and the magnificence
of unconditional love
shared with another
the whole world
listens
and says YES!

are we so starved
in this world
that we fish around
for scraps
of what we need
dying like
fish taken from water
gasping at the air.

are we desperate 
for signs of love
to remind us
why we are here
lest we all forget
and lose ourselves
in all this distraction.

only love satisfies the soul
nothing else
if love is shared with another
so be it
but they don’t create it.
love was always there
they just dived into
the ocean
that was
already there
waiting for each and 
everyone of us.

the one thing
i have learned
from being with another
is that
there is no other.
Cats doing nothing
