Favorite Quote:
"I go to seek a Great Perhaps"


Hands everywhere
Touching, grabbing, pulling
Greedy for sensation
A sickening tenderness

Heavy breathing
On my face; poison
I can't breathe in
A sickening tenderness

Intruding orders
The smell of sour grapes
Tasting salted tears on raw lips
A sickening tenderness

Paralyzed
Legs hanging limp
Something fallen away from inside
A sickening tenderness

Forever pained
Images carved into my soul
My corruption eternal
From his sickening tenderness


The author's comments:
This piece is about a series of events in my life, that I would sometimes rather forget. Now I know that isn't going to happen, so might as well give people the chance to learn from my pains.
