Passsion knows itself
only when faced with itself
love only becomes real
when grated against
by the sandpapery scratch of hate
desire can only be true
when forced to expose
its very essence to the
inquisition of Rome
and in the end
I can only know my heart
by allowing you to touch it.

Seeing you on the Forums again has sent me back to read your work. I'm sorry I missed this the first time around.

Wonder why this one got so far down? This must have been when we were all learning our courtesies. Looking back through the archives for enjoyable and seemingly forgotten work.

I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.
