Loved Radiantly

This radiant woman,
lonely and seeking,
without a deep knowing
of her inner being,
immediately
gave me
attention,
affection,
gentleness,
touching
and gratification.

Unable to find
the path
to her immortality,
she escapes through
the creation of
copious activities
which overfills
every waking void
in her aging existence.

Armed
with the aspiration
for the pursuance of
intellectual fulfillment,
she devours
sophisticated embellished depiction's
of ceremonialized
human absurdity
and despair.

Though with passion,
I gave her
 love and serenity,
enabling her to see,
momentarily,
her self loved;
she danced away
frightened
with a complex ideological barrage
of annoyances,
inconveniences,
and an intolerance
of me.

Hence,
her shaping of
this drama,
has left me
in solitary indifference
and depression,
and alienated
from my own soulů
