Random Thoughts # 4

My blessing, my bane
A mind, that is mine
Insists, Sin’s my own,
Virtue, divine.

Heart, beats and wonders
At no claim on Love,
The one thing that salvages,
Beyond and above.

I am utterly, passionately, consummately in love with John Steinbeck’s East of Eden, and if I were to have a book for a lover, I would have gone to the ends of the world to be alone with this book – learning the strengths of human emotions from its pages, knowing the redeeming power of love. To this book – the one book.
