When you are so sure
May be Jesus wasn’t sure that his Paul
would take him to the cross to be crucified!
Love betrays like this when one is so sure
of love, of the amorous bed, of the faithful hands
that browse through the veins of the heart.
You consent to tie the trusted knot
to overwhelm the raucous romantics.
In the moment of blissful union
you fabricate your canonization in a blink.
Then we agonize in your deceit for decades.
You can live with a boa constrictor
but not with the love that betrays
when you were so sure of it!
