I don't pretend to understand the mystery of love, but this time it was more than sex, more than using a woman's body. It was being lifted off the earth, outside fear & torment, being part of something greater than myself. I was lifted out of the dark cell of my own mind, to become part of someone else. It was the first step outward to the universe -- beyond the universe! -- because in it & with it we merged to recreate & perpetuate the human spirit. Expanding & bursting outward, & contracting & forming inward, it was the rhythm of being -- of breathing, of heartbeat, of day & night -- & the rhythm of our bodies set off an echo in my mind. It was the way it had been back there in that strange vision. The gray murk lifted from my mind, & through it the light pierced into my brain [how strange that light should blind!], and my body was absorbed back into a great sea of space, washed under in strange baptism. My body shuddered with giving, & her body shuddered its acceptance.
This was the way we loved!
Comment to be added or leave me something secretive that I can decode preferably.
