    There must be something wrong with me.
    I am finally touched
    And all I can think
    Is that I never want to be touched again.
    My body makes me feel ill.
    Her hands on me
    Make me shiver
    But only with fear and revulsion.
    I forget
    His hands on me
    Forced masculinity.
    I am a woman
    I am where you once were.
    What is wrong with me?
    Just don’t.
    This isn’t the first time.
    I’ve been here before
    Felt wanting
    And then despair
    And panic pull the floor out from under me.
    Is this God telling me I should just give up?
    Is this punishment?
    Better I should never make this attempt again.
    I can live without love
    At least for awhile.
    Something in my quaking mind
    Tells me that I may not have a choice.
    No one will want a woman
    Who can offer most of a true heart
    The remnants of a strong mind
    And a reluctant body.
    I can live without love
    At least for awhile
    Long enough to live a little more
    And find a way to let go.

    Another sadly gorgeous work of art!:smile: Sorry for the feelings that produced it:sad: , but your work, as always, is beyond description.:smile: :smile:


  4. How beautifuly frank and honest, as part of the human condition, inspite of your sad and seemingly reluctant self. Your words truly slay me - touch me. I'm tired, but you touch me...
