Love's Dilemma

Can we love without touching,
Hugging or even kissing
Love without caressing,
Holding or even caring?

Can we love without the sexual,
The desires of the flesh, the corporeal
Love without physical attraction,
With no feeling or emotion?

For real love is spiritual,
Not of the material
Love would be true if we were too
Love without loving like this, is taboo

For love writes a letter,
To the heart high on a ladder
Just reading the words, it floats
To the clouds

Love is intercourse of the intellectual
Stimulating yet not superficial
Orgasmic and organic
Natural and authentic
