12. The barrier of nearness

The barrier of nearness
At times does exist.
   But why?
   Because
The seeker does not surrender
His earthbound fondness to
The Master-leader;
   Because
The seeker builds a paradise of his own
  Where he wants to possess
  The Master ceaselessly
Before the Master
  Claims and proclaims him
  Compassionately and proudly
   As his own, very own.
