Sexless Foreplay

Maybe you could be mine,
or maybe we’ll be entwined,
aimless in this sexless foreplay.

Non-Living

Sometimes I can hear my bones straining
under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.

While no one railroad can completely duplicate another line, two or more may compete at particular points.

Redemption

Between the radiant white of a clear Conscience and the coal black of a Conscience sullied by Sin lie many shades of gray–where most of us Live our Lives. Not Perfect but not beyond Redemption.

Suffering

Contrary to what we may have been taught to think,
Unnecessary and Unchosen Suffering wounds us
but need not Scar us for Life. It does Mark us.
What we Allow the Mark of our Suffering
to become is in Our Own Hands.
~ Bell Hooks
