    for X-dream


    he was a man undone
    a man whose shame was
    his daily torment
    he was wounded, and yet
    the blood stains on his hands
    were not his own

    she bore the pain of his
    guilt and the weight of his
    evils in her flesh

    but she washed him
    with her soft hands
    she bathed his skin
    with her tender fingers
    she kneaded his sore muscles
    evened out his taut and tortured
    body with her healing oils

    she loved him~ she
    aching, bleeding, and wounded
    she loved him ~ he
    torn, broken, unloving
    she loved him ~she
    humiliated, abused, disrespected
    she loved him ~ he
    profane, unyeilding, spiteful
    she loved him

    YES!
    naked, blind, feeble
    of heart, body and mind
    useless to himself,
    alone, emotionally unavailable
    physically removed
    on island of his own making
    unable to reconcile the past

    she washed him
    kissed him with her touches
    one more time...
