Loves Lost

        You, my beloved lost in advance, my never-appeared: 
                       –  Du im Voraus by Rainer Maria Rilke

There are
So many lost ways to

No one willing to count
The differences
Your latest way

Is misshapen, cruel poem!
Mind what you say
How you send your words
Orchestrate the unknown

Love's poetry is for love
Open, passionate
The long, long kiss

Send no other
If there's charm, beauty

Desire, allure. If not
Send The Panther – the other
Composed by Rilke

It will pace, grow weary
In the hands
No heart to win or lose

It's just a panther pacing
Back and forth
An image in a cage
