masculinity


Neither do I hate a man nor do I detest awoman
But I hate masculinity
Every man and woman is masculine
Because everyone suffers from hopes and fears
Every phallus and uterus expands and contracts
If there were no hope therewould be nothing to fear
There are as many heavens as there are men
The inscription at the gate of my heaven is_
GIVE UP ALL HOPE OR YOU CANNOT ENTER
Dante's hell is what my heaven is
I long for a world wherethey will not fear castration
We donot want strength Oh God we donot long for hope

    Hopes if taken away from our lives then we would be poor shrunken things as Bacon had mentioned…

    The objectivity of renouncing them is substantial for hope is always accompanied by fear and thus a bringer of pain…
    The expression is deep and exquisite (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
