Energy, exciting, strange, pours through me.
Running over me with fierce-some greed that
Only slakes when fed quite faithfully. And
So we wed today to bed tonight. Quenched.
Persons known for years and years don’t bother
Hiding fears from one another. Can’t work
If they hide them, knowing can’t be done, so
Life is lived while choosing who can see and
Is quite worthy receiving our inner
Attitudes. Do we get theirs from them back?
Loving playing games with you as we fall
Under time’s swift passing spell we flirt and
Drink around the gaming table. We now
Unearth treasures, killing monsters, questing
Still for more paths. Passing time together.
All men are created equal starting
Gear is similar, but choices change us.
All men must be loved as humans, but we
Prejudice ourselves against each other.
Equal means we’re equal. Love us all. All.
Praising partners is good, but to only
Ruins some relationships. The hidden
Accuracy drug behind the praises.
Getting honest, real and knowing self is
Moving toward substantive grown pairings.
All can get there if they want to work hard.
Personal, my feelings change with passing
Hours as a mother, wife and daughter
I am. Roles that I must change at need, but
Love them all – they’re not just me. I live not
All alone inside my skull but others
Underneath them I do live, and hide my
Thoughts when something doesn’t match with real life.
I then dig deep down until I can learn
All of me to love again and joy comes.
