Even within love
this extraordinary state of bliss
the need for self-reflection arises

then what seems like withdrawal
can be seen in another light
not quite so bright
but building in intensity

a reasoned incubation
of all that has yet to be turned
toward the spirit
of our heartfelt sharing

and in this withdrawal
the feelings that bind
can be set free

that we may continue to be
this love we share
