it’s all in the last word

there can only be one first time

and the dubious honor goes to her

she was the first to kiss me with desire

okay-
this was just a little exercise in playing word games with negatives
but i kinda like it
even though it’s sad

but somehow that didn’t make the wall look decayed or weaker

it made the wall look like it had survived stronger forces than i could wield
and it had not given way

the wall looked battle scarred

but formidable

Hope Eternally
Forgive Graciously
Desire Fervently

I don’t want to direct you as if you were lost
I want to walk with you as life’s path unfolds

I don’t want to hold you up as if you were weak
I want to stand with you because I see your strength
