A Fragile Jewel


By GeorgeHoward 06.2010

I take up the fragile Jewel unsure.
My hands are ridiculous, rough, cut, but clean!
Cleaned meticulously, for the sole purpose.
Testosterone fades as Oestrogen floods in.
I become a woman – man, as I gaze in raptures.
A giant would not dare try my hand.
At this very time I would gladly die!
My unending love pours forth.
I lay her once more down to sleep.
But slumber on knifes edge, aware.
Ready once more to be at her side.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
