Ana Castillo

I ask the impossible: love me forever.
Love me when all desire is gone.
Love me with the single mindedness of a monk.
When the world in its entirety,
and all that you hold sacred advise you
against it: love me still more.

— Ana Castillo, I Ask the Impossible: Poems. (Anchor; 1st Anchor Books ed edition, March 20, 2001)
