To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
by Constantine P. Cavafy
Return often and take me,
beloved sensation, return and take me --

and an old desire runs again through the blood;
when the lips and the skin remember,
and the hands feel as if they touch again.
Return often and take me at night,
when the lips and the skin remember....
