"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open hearted vision of people who embrace life." - John Lennon

The Beginning
She, sweet lips
I, lips unbothered
She, sparkling black eyes
I, pale sunken eyes
She, cold body
I, warm body
She, dead heart
I, dead soul
Us, dead love
The Middle
When heaven cries, I cry
She is gone
And I am alone
The End

Soft satin graces my skin
A sweet aroma fills my body up to the brim overflowing with gayness
Rose Petals kissed to I
