Ultimate Thievery

ULTIMATE THIEVERY

Whenever I find myself
Lost in my losing of you
It is not of course you
That I am losing, oh no
But truth to tell myself

  1. Hmmm. . . I just read a biography of the English poet, novelist, and essayist Robert Graves. As a young and middle aged man he tortured himself for love. As an old man he wrote marvelous love poetry while falling in love over and over again and losing his love while loving his wife more than he loved anyone else. This poem pricks at Graves’ notions of love and spins the eternal in human affairs.

  2. That does make sense. We can’t lose another only ourselves.
