Premises of romance
The world is a blank slate
Adventures await for us to uncover
Life is subtle, profound, multifarious, accessible, playful, and
desiring of your caresses
Together we are unjailed and can say and do anything
Passion fuels greater passion; set fires everywhere
What we paint with a lover in our private realm is so vivid as to
be unseen and incomprehensible to others
There are no mistakes, only misunderstandings and missed opportunities
that remain forever; thus be of open soul and forever aspire
The world is sensible, accommodating, and clarifying when you work with
it instead of struggling against it (errors result from prejudices taught by
television and professors)
Romance reminds of faith, stability, possibility, joy, beauty, and
happiness with natural abundance as alternative to modernity
So many forms of communication!
All time together is a delightful exception, probably fleeting (how
few are patient, faithful, and able to value enough to sustain romance).
With imminent death at hand, attempt everything
Opportunity abounds: not what something is, but what we can make it
Everything dies and is dying, crumbling around us, yet we can touch and
experience the precious and tender, and can nurture this to great expanses.

I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.
