Doing Love "Clean"


What do you mean,
By doing love "clean."
Without expectations,
Of needs being met.
Commitment,
Without attachment.
Sharing completeness,
Not always completely.
No drugs of choice,
people or things,
To numb the feelings,
Or help fantasize dreams.
As fear comes up,
Welcoming it with courage,
Feeling its edges,
Learning its purpose.
Opening the heart,
Exposing the truth,
Until in freedom,
Being made wholly aware.
