Lover – Subjective


I’m throwing myself whole-heartedly
onto an object of desire,
into the vast and complex space between
my ideas and the fabric of reality.

Projecting these passions
with enduring fits of adoration
infuses each experience
with every instant of release.

Otherwise there is no love
in the material of the world.
There is only me,
and whatever matter my love sustains.

This is my world and I am in love.
The world is either full of my love,
or I am lost.

The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay

Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
