Please teach me about love, as this unconquerable feeling
I’m experiencing within me is literally pulling me apart.
For on the one hand I genuinely want to save myself
until I’m in a reciprocally meaningful relationship
while on the other the unbridled and utterly
uncontrollable lust you’ve spontaneously and
excitingly evoked in me lends itself immutably to the
sponsorship of an entirely different and conflicting
attitude where the stoical restraints of reason and
commonsense are pitted adversarily against
the unyielding Siren voices of my heart!
