I don’t understand
people who like
losing control

Once in a while
may be
relaxing
maybe

But to consistently
recklessly
lose control?

Aren’t you worried
about how you
affect others?

Don’t you wonder
about the consequences
of your actions?

Is the thrill
of destruction
so compelling?

what of yourself
do you
hold back

hide bury restrain
to control
the perception
of you

bare yourself
to the possibility
of being
intimately known

the essence
of you
is not ugly

I do not believe
it’s impossible for
men
to restrain their
sexual desires

Depending on
who you are
how you were raised
what you’ve been through

It might be
hard
maybe even
incredibly difficult

But impossible?

Have you even tried?

So many books, so little time. Someone needs to invent something to transfer all my stories directly from my brain to my word docs so I have more time to read.
