i wish we had cuddled tonight
like we both* wanted to
you knew you'd be safe with me
like i knew with you
but still we both were aware of an unspoken danger-
but still, we were willing to confront it in the idlest of ways
because we were young
but together and apart we matured
we welcome danger as a test-
but more so now;
to prove what we do-
we do by choice
so maybe
by choice
we chose...safety
understandable.
we'll both be cold tonight.

re-acquainting myself with myself

i once knew a girl who i had been
a girl i loved and lost
a girl who became a woman
because she was aware of her sexuality
and she could have the best of men
and she had them
she had them heighten her awareness
heighten her dream
heighten her passion

i once knew a girl who i had been
a girl i loved and killed
a girl who could be kind and gentle
loud and fierce
angry and intimidating
but for the right purpose
that of freedom
and never ending justice

i once knew a girl who i had been
a girl i loved and forgot
a girl who left an impression on all who had met her
she admired intimacy
aspired to obtain it with others
respectfully
sexually
and friendly

i once knew a girl who i had been
a girl i loved
who would tackle each day with true pride
had so much to offer and offered generously
had not so much as a hint of a smile to hide
and lived wondrously
