Poetry: Do Not Abandon Love

Come to me, for darkness consumes

as the shroud of blackness falls

Open is my gate


Come to me, and end your sojourn

Quiet is my garden

with fragrant blooms


Come to me, our souls entwined

An oasis awaits

wellsprings of delight


Come to me, do not abandon love

for passion consumes

this desolate sojourn

entwined in destiny
