    ramblings from the hope chest....

    Brotha James says
    that the temptations
    wherewith we are tempted
    do not come from God,
    but that our own lusts turn
    to face us

    and when we stand
    peering through the
    glass, darkly
    there is bound to be
    serious misrepresentation

    take, fornication

    for example,

    I have ample
    Biblical
    ammunition
    to speak against this
    human condition

    but

    my baser inclination
    has been
    to yield to this
    temptation

    thus immersed in
    skin on skin
    all up in
    mo skin

    I have
    on countless
    occasions
    entered

    in

    b'twixt & tween
    that familiar
    funky space

    west of the rock
    east of the hard place...

    says many things that, when we're caught up in the mix, we don't want to hear. You give me something for my head at all times, Ms. A. It's a B_____ , that place we reside "b'twixt & tween". Feels sooo good all up in there.

    Thank you for this
