An Intrinsic Exquisite


since these multiple partner experiences have only come my way in the context of adventure and since those adventures have never led me to an experience of loving but too often to a place of longing, loneliness and despair, I cannot consider polygamy amorous as in romance

romantic love is for me about twoness
about one and some one else with whom I can experience

exalted states of intimacy and compassion
with whom the world surrounding us becomes transformed

occasionally by the breathtaking exaltation of our love

that's romance

that's romantic - the set up

the willingness to participate
in this exaltation, shared, witnessed, co-authored, that's romantic

apparently there


are people

for whom romance

may consist of more

than one otherness
