...You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness

to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.

Excerpt : "Sweet Darkness"
from River Flow
New and Selected Poems
