Fucking Poor

Most men, and some women
find in sex
an affirmation of power and acquisition
a journey of intimacy that mirrors the lost age of real adventure
and conquest
A mirror soon replaces the window
– the shadow becomes the thing
and every thrust
a suicidal dagger
into a broken soul
forever lost.

Most women and some men
find in sex
an affirmation of love and belonging
a realisation of intimacy
that mirrors the lost hope of self-love
and connecting
A mirror soon replaces the window
– the shadow becomes the thing
and every thrust
a desperate cry
to be filled and felt
seen and touched.
