    Loving me for me
    Sometimes it's hard to see
    The beauty and the tenderness
    That's inside me
    Because on everyside I'm pressed
    Body needing vindication
    Slowing yearning for emancipation
    Just yearning to be touched
    The torcher of unrequited love
    The cravings of sex
    THe benefits of feeling erect
    The temporary high
    Yet the permanent low
    The eurphoric passion
    You wish could be shared with someone who you'd love to know
    The mistakes
    There are many that I've made
    Just want to pick myself back up again
    The men that I've known
    And who have abandoned
    Left me alone
    And I let them be free
    Wanting to explore
    To a land where I'll hunger no more
    And never regret
    A night with a stranger that was slept

    You know the feeling that I feel
    It's hidden and oh so real
    The lust let it open and flood

    Quieting the yearnings
    Of feelings I can't hide
    Wishing they would subside
    Feeling I'm closer
    Because I know myself

    Getting there is half the battle
    And when you get there
    What's left.
    Saying, " I can do it on my own"
    And find out the lonesome has invaded your home
    Turing the key to walk inside
    An apartment
    No voices to feel the silence
    This jouney has been an adventure
    I feel so good because
    I am more deeply passionately richer
    And a lot more quicker
    To resolve the conflicts within my soul
    That have left me bitter

    Just wanting to know
    And I"m still full of hope
    I've left my "coat" behind
    Trusting in one
    Who can't be seen
    But His love has become my pride

    There's no where to go except for up high
    When you've reached your lowest low
    You find that there's nothing to loose
    And you can only gain and you can't deny

    As the years go by
    You catch the drift
    Life solemn tide
    The rivers
    flowing so effortless

    And life pulls you along
    With it's unforgotten song
    Not knowing what to expect
    In my poetry
    I must reflect

    ~ Desert Storm~
