True Love at Last -- D H Lawrence

Guest poem sent in by Sarah Korah
(Poem #1805) True Love at Last
 The handsome and self-absorbed young man
 looked at the lovely and self-absorbed girl
 and thrilled.

 The lovely and self-absorbed girl
 looked back at the handsome and self-absorbed young man
 and thrilled.

 And in that thrill he felt:
 Her self-absorption is even as strong as mine.
 I must see if I can't break through it
 And absorb her in me.

 And in that thrill she felt:
 His self-absorption is even stronger than mine!
 What fun, stronger than mine!
 I must see if I can't absorb this Samson of self-absorption.

 So they simply adored one another
 and in the end
 they were both nervous wrecks, because
 in self-absorption and self-interest they were equally matched.
-- D H Lawrence
Here comes D.H.Lawrence's take on true love... in the land of the self
obsessed :) This quirky, irreverent counterpoint to True Love makes the case
that there is something essentially selfless about love; or it is not the
real thing.

Sarah Korah

[Martin adds]

In a lighter - or, at least, friendler - vein, I was reminded of Lawrence's
playfully romantic "Intimates" [Poem #110] - it is interesting to note the
superficial similarity of theme, but wide disparity of intent, between the
two poems.
