The Lover’s Ambrosia


~ The Lover’s Ambrosia ~

The lover wants a sacred love
that reflects his soul’s grace,
not the world’s dysfunctions
with its inordinate ego projections.
Why would such a vast being
relinquish the exquisiteness
of his inner ambrosia in order
to embrace some monotonously
mundane finite romance?
Everyone desires a deep lover
yet rare are those who are spiritually
refined enough to keep him near.
Such a love is an elixir solely
offered to those with pure lips~
