Adoration is a drug that gets you high on how others delight in you.

savor all the love you are granted by others, it is life's greatest gift


When you have 
achieved adoration 
before thousands 
of screaming fans
as you dance on 
the vibes of fate
that brought you 
to your pinnacle of fame
as an ocean of faces 
cry  out your name
and the electric 
squeals of the axes
move them in undulating 
waves as one
pause for a single 
moment and capture
the feel, and the taste 
of that multitude of love
breathe it in deeply 
on that day
for much later comes 
only the silence
of a satin box and a 
single face of death
hidden in the soil 
of man's mortality
and then what you knew 
as a charmed life
that great adoration 
that cloaked your world
is forgotten as time 
erases your essence

But on a much 
greater scale 
if you simply get 
the chance to hear
"I wuv you mom, 
I wuv you too dad!'
from the honeyed 
petulant lips of your babies
wide eyes full of trust, 
loving only you
hugging a leg tightly 
and smiling with 
perfect, miniature 
gleams of porcelain
savour that moment 
and cling to its gift
for you are most 
truly loved in a bigger way
then any masses could 
ever pour upon your soul
and far too soon 
comes the silence
wrapped around you 
in deaths final grip
clasping you in 
the airless space 
of a mahogany and 
brass container
that your babies, 
then grown will hug
and whisper, 
" I love you mom, 
I love you dad.'
but your ears 
will not function
and your eyes sewn 
shut will not see
the glories of what l
ove bestowed upon you

If we even get the 
chance at least once 
to cause someone 
to say "I love you."
then we have 
achieved the adoration
that all were 
meant to bask in
and so few hang 
on to long enough
to appreciate 
the incredible beauty
love adds to life, 
as well as the ease 
with which it helps 
to lessen death
when all that is 
sacred in this world
slips away with a sad sigh.
but yet is cherished 
long after such love
is gone.
