“True love is like a pyramid in the desert.
An oasis amidst the barren sands of life.
At first one might only see a fraction of it,
But the longer one devotes to it, perseveres with uncovering it,
The greater and more magnificent it does become.
It is something both mysterious and enlightening,
That can transcend both space and time,
And weather the harshest of conditions.
It is truly the purpose of life.
– Addendum –
And yet, one must beware the consequences of ever turning away,
Or ignoring it for very long.
Ever more the folly it is to give up the search entirely!
For in doing so one may eventually lose it altogether beneath the sands,
Never again to catch a glimpse of its splendour.
And no matter how hard they might struggle in their search,
Or however long their toil should be, it shall forever be lost to them.
And alone they shall stand within the wastelands of their life,
Upon the broken ruin of their dreams.”
– Crispian Thurlborn, “Love” (2008)
