Two Pursuits

One pursues me while

I make haste to catch

up with the other

One remains illusive

ducking my advances

the other a daily reminder

that it intends to devour me

One is sure destruction

the end of all things

the other a source of peace

a respite from troubled life

These two – love and death

represent the ultimate

final destination

I must outrun love

to catch the other
