New love; old text

A new love affair is like rereading a valued text. We search for new meaning in our desires. Each emotion begs for reinterpretation. New propositions present themselves. We seek their conformity with reality–their truth or falsity–or whether they are lies we tell ourselves and others to maintain our most cherished and needy desires.

We ask ourselves whether this time we’ll get it right.
