13 January You are into me like flame and fire as no other desire could know such gentle fury ...like an undefined thirst incalculably uncontrolled, or passion spent in seeking a wild and wondrous rose. With love, as in life, there are no guarantees. Except always a beginning, always an end. Nothing else is certain, set in some. The thoughts and emotions that drive us indeed ever churning, changing... ever in flux, ebb and flow. So, too, the heart- yet once fixed, as relentless as a star: the blaze too brilliant to be near, consuming all. Whether right or wrong, a force of such power and import, almost impossible to stop. Impossible not to desire above all things (whether prudent or unwise)... moving us to destiny or despair. May your star remain fixed - your love, the life it was meant to be. You, My Love... a diary in verse was a winning Finalist in the poetry category of the 2010 National Indie Excellence Awards. It was also the poetry Runner-up in the 2011 London Book Festival, and the Runner-up in the 2012 Paris Book Festival.
