The conundrum of your situation is
That you are practicing infidelity
To live with one man and love another
Is bad enough; to love them both
Is ten times worse

I see you living in the agony of excess
I live in an agony of wants and fear
You hide behind your insecurities
I hide behind my verse
The truth of your situation
Is that God requires hospitality
And does not visit where he's not welcome

A friend of mine posted this poem on Facebook today.  It sounded strangely familiar to me, so I asked her why it seemed to ring a bell, and she replied that I had written it for her some 16 years ago.  I thought that it would be fitting for me to post it here, untouched, in gratitude for remembering what I had forgotten, and keeping a moment enshrined in time.

I Have to Lower Top

Laptop Top to get

mouse and Keys

To Function, huh?








Srve German Cookies,

Sing Carols, Feast, and

a Favorite Word is 

Hospitality -


We only Open the Door,

and Interior Virtues Are

Exchanged - Inner Rich

And More Precious Than


the HOARDERS. Virtues

Are More Valuable Than

Billions. Love of GREED

And Money Ill GAINED

Causes HUBRIS and

Ruins ... It's the

Gold Calf Notion.

Seek Delusions?

Pursue Spiritual

Death & Self


I Gotta Hop

In SAck...

Good To

Read You ...

old voices are at times haunting especially if they're our own
