Half Passion
Looking ahead at half love
With half heart
Mixing half passion
With half rhetoric
Pouring half self into the
Arms of half love
Finding half pleasure
From half compulsion
Manufacturing passion
With hammers and nails
Plastering the walls with
Flimsy pages from
Flimsy dictionaries
Watching rhetoric as it
Slides down the wall
To be swept under the carpet
Running away from
Love’s sacred fire
Battling the blaze
With half-hearted hoses
Half wanting to be  
Sacrificed for love’s glory
Manufacturing half passion
To douse the flame
Desiring to live half a life in a
Half-hearted way
