Look again

I said “Love,
there is this monstrous realm of guilt and fear
where things with teeth and claws feed forever.”
“Are you absolutely certain?” Love asked
“Look again” Love gently guided,
“here, use my eyes, let’s look together”
I breathed deeply and soften into Love.
I looked. I couldn’t see it anywhere.
All I could see were clouds.
Objects made of particles,
bodies made of chemical sensations,
all appear from Love and to Love return.
This is happiness.
