About the Poem
This poem, perhaps more than any other I have written, exemplifies my philosophy of life.
I value my friends, and I don't want to lose any of them. People have a tendency to dive into relationships too deeply, too quickly. Euphoria does eventually find its way into reality, and many valuable friends are lost as a result. True friendship can endure forever if we are wise enough to recognize its place in our hearts.

|True friendship knows its own intrinsic bound,
The pinnacle a covenant unfound.
Perchance cerebral spirits meet
Fulfilling thoughts and dreams in kind,
To render yearning minds replete
Thence wending on with arms in bind,
Mere touch supplanting idle prate
No greater trust than hands entwined.
Enamored passions proffer sate
As ardent raptured hearts unite
In sumptuous repast of fate.
With surety of love in sight,
Two souls shall only then enjoin
In confluence of shared delight.
That perfect niche, a bond without excess
Yields ever symbiotic synthesis.
