    touching herself was
    considered taboo
    it went without saying
    and the consequence
    she would pay
    was understood

    it was dangerous

    self-exploration
    would lead to
    self-discovery

    and all hell would
    break loose
    if she yielded
    to the overwhelming
    temptations
    the burning
    sensations

    of deepening
    her ever widening
    hunger
    for mental
    stimulation


    the orthodox
    church of
    misinformation
    demanded
    strict adherence
    to
    the 4th book
    of stagnation

    and anyone
    striving to
    "KNOW" themselves
    would suffer
    ex-communication

    so

    she prayed to the
    god
    of her righteous
    indignation

    and began to
    write poetry
    from her pen
    of
    inspiration

    ~touching herself
    boldly
    no fear of
    condemnation~

    The pen is mightier than the sword and words leave a lasting impression. I feel this deep inside where the touch is real.
