Never say yes to my nearness because you say no to another one
Let yes only be yes
and no only be no
Never fill the emptiness of
your being
out of my fullness
Let fullness fill itself
and emptiness empty itself
Never feel the bond of our hearts
as a chain or a fetter to your liberty and freedom
Breathe both of them, liberty and freedom, in my nearness
and take the liberty for yourself to come near me.
And leave the liberty to me never to feel freer
than near you, however close this may be.

I’d love to hear your stories about nearness…Thanks Jacqueline
