Freedom of a captive heart

And his love was the object of an exclusive love,

having resolved as he did to love her passionately, unrepentantly.

Desire was directed by a magnetism obscure

distinctly towards her…

And as the days were stolen ever more shrewdly

a vision came of freedom through the heart’s captivity,

captivity to the woman with whom he had bonded.

Bound to his love

all the old possibilities and uncertainties

evaporated irretrievably.
