A lasting marriage

A lasting marriage
     when devotion has claimed you for its own
     no longer any chance to stray
     a brief  fling with illusion no longer satisfies
     the truth demands utter fidelity
     with no possibility of divorce

     All pain must be faced
     and embraced as the true countenance of
          your beloved

     All fear must be met
     and recognized as the thrill of tasting
          the unknowable

     All joy must be surrendered
     and acknowledged as a gift with
          no giver

     This union only requires telling the truth
     even when the truth shatters your dreams
     even when the truth leaves you emptied out
     even when the truth reveals your counterfeit existence
     then there is no other possibility
          then happily ever after.
