Like industrialists extracting materials
Used to power the world,
I happily exploit your potential.
Like settlers working the land,
Laying claims on their efforts,
I eagerly seek to possess you.
Like single-minded pursuit of purpose
Indelibly marks its pursuer,
Your life is inscribed on mine.
As deliciously entwined as we choose to live,
We are distinct: Each defined by his values.
For in as long as we remain true to our selves,
It is our virtue which sustains this perfect love.
