    touch....
    the place in between my thighs...
    ..press my finger tips into my
    inner thighs...
    They feel so diferent...
    Yet, they look the same....
    This time last year.....
    They felt ......untouched.......
    and I felt a sense of pride
    All of a sudden , I took my pride....
    ....for a ride

    That lasted 3 months...

    I was in sexual remission
    for a while......

    The a new cancer came in the form of a
    friend

    Every place I touch ...burns
    Every person I touch...leaves

    I burn with shame but I don't
    have the power over my actions
    becuase I am still looking for love

    God granted me to still be alive...
    Because by forty-five...
    Life will be a quarter full
    and 75% emtpy

    Empty.......

    all because of a single.....

    solitary......

    touch

    there is no reason to be ashamed...we all make mistakes, some more costly than others...this was beautiful and heartwrenching and i pray that everything will be ok for you.

    this was moving...I'm inclined to agree with True love

    life will only be empty if you allow it to be...
    never allow one unpleasant experience to be the foundation
    on which you build and monument to which you pledge

    much depth presented here

    awww, SwtT :grouphug:

    Don't let yourself be devoured by regret. You did the best you could at the time with the knowledge you had. Don't beat yourself up for it.

    We all love you, girl, and are here for ya any old time. Believe dat.

    brighter days
    come with the knowledge
    of past mistakes...
    you gotta get burned sometimes
    to see the light...
    and from your poetry
    i can tell you see the light
    don't let the past
    make you uptight...
    aiight..
    peace
