    I forget sometimes
    That other people don’t think as I do.
    That to some
    My love
    Is blasphemy.
    It’s just
    What it is to me.
    Joy and pain
    And failures
    Happily ever after
    And star-crossed mishap
    The same as any other.
    Who has the right to tell me
    who I can and cannot love?
    I love what to me is fitting
    Nothing else.
    There are no hard and fast rules
    In such an undertaking.
    I love what I love
    Because it is beautiful to me.
    I should need no other reason.
    Easy enough to say
    Hard enough to do.
    Your bible
    With it’s heavy, solid weight
    Is easier to hang onto
    Than my ephemeral convictions.
    You spit in my eyes
    I want to fall at your feet
    But I refuse
    Wipe a hand across my lids
    Turn the other cheek and keep on trucking.
    A lapsed Christian but a better one than you.
    You can keep your hell
    Since you seem so enamored of its flames.
    I’m a New England baby
    Born to long winters and cold springs
    Even if I do flame a bit now and then.
    My daily life may not be my own
    My afterlife, well it’s debatable,
    But my heart
    And my private life
    They’re mine
    And I will use them to love where I must
    And as I am moved
    And nothing you can do
    Or say
    No right you take away
    Or hold at bay
    Can change that reality.
    Now There
    is redemption.

    Ow!!! Wow!!!!! That one's hard-hitting just where it needs to hit. I especially like the two lines "you can keep your hell/since you seem so enamored of its flames".:eek:hmy:

    Keep 'em coming, you miserable but masterful poetic genius!:wink: :smile: I love them all.


  3. AMEN SISTER!!!! Praise be! (can I get a hallelujah??).
