You spend your nights
reaching
for Apollo’s robes.

You’re as hot
as New Orleans
in mid-July, and
as fierce
as her gumbo.

But, he is light-years
away and your fingers
ache with tired
insecurity.-

a disaster in
your own
moon skin.

Even if it fucking hurts,
you can still taste
his heat on your tongue.

Gods be damned,
you’re a butterfly-
( even if mounted
to a bed. )

One day,
you will find yourself
and fly away.
Anonymous secret: "I whore around a lot, but for some reason sex is painful, physically and psychologically, but I don’t know why."

I don't like the word 'whore'. Even if you sleep with 12 different people in one night, and you enjoy that physical contact--good for you! I don't even think the word should exist. However, if sex is painful both physically and emotionally, please take a step back and think about what you are doing. Do you really want this?

then why post it for the public to comment? doesn't make sense, you controlling what the public can and can't see. censorship in any form is just a form of control, and besides, if you really wanted to "hide" the comment you wouldn't comment publicly on it, you just want to let the commenter (me) know that my comment's "rude" but then there's no comment for anyone to see anyway, I can't even see what the hell I commented to defend myself and/or agree with you! smoke on that.

It is my work. My deviation. DeviantART wouldn't give me the option to hide a comment if it weren't. I found the comment negative and inapropriate. Therefore i told you and I hid it. I realize I should have caught it sooner but I didn't. If you would like to know what you said, I don't feel like talking about it here so you can send me a note if you like.

nah girl/dude. you've got some pretty poems and everything, but I think you're a little mixed up about the internet-intellect in this case. you can do whatever you like, yeah, but your work is your work and my comment is my comment, and why shouldn't it be public? I wouldn't have said it if I didn't want people to read it along with your work, you're just shutting me up. anyone who censors comments on the internet is on a power-trip because you have a right over what you post but you shouldn't have a right over what others say, even if it's something not-nice, even if it's rude. "i may not agree with what you're saying, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." -voltaire.

*smdh* pretty poems, but maybe you should think about how you deal with heat before you post

Well, this is personal, and technically if you were insulting her that should not be put on deviantart. However if. You were trying to express your opinion on a subject, that is your choice. Most people would not censor that.

It doesn't matter who was at fault or if you're even involved– read "Tolerance" by E. M. Forster and live by it. It's what I try to do.

I do not understand everyone and do not expect everyone to understand me. So... Please :)

nothing rude! And people who can't handle heat have nowhere to go but the Internet. It's more difficult in person.

This is a beautiful poem! Reminds me of the phrase, "sex is never about sex." 

"Even if you sleep with 12 different people in one night, and you enjoy that physical contact--good for you!"

Holy cow! I don't regard society's morals much [sex is private anyway], I just want to secure my health without losing at Russian Roulette and ending up in the book as the host for new discoveries. :please: revamped All it takes is one, but I'd rather not guess with twelve in one night. :headsmash: Everyone, boyfriends and sidelines, are taking STD tests on my couch. Toukuchitoua   Then we go at it!

This society tells us to put so much on sex--pleasure, lust, guilt, shame, desire, love, power, honesty, trust, etc. Perhaps in your mind you're still conflicted about what the word "whore" means and whether you fit the bill. But, lemme tell you something from experience... real "whores" (the ones that feel ashamed to be what society considers a "whore") can't admit it. The fact that you can say it shows that you're not one. 

Just because you sleep around and have casual sex with many partners, doesn't make you a "whore". But the fact that you continue to do something that harms you just shows me how angry you are--at yourself, your mistakes, your past, family, friends, whatever it is... Every time you have sex with a person, you give a little piece of yourself away to them, even if the sex meant nothing to you. And in the end...if you give all the pieces of yourself away...what's left for you? 

The question is...how long can you continue causing yourself pain...and losing pieces of yourself...until you find yourself hollow? And if one day you find someone you want to be with in a monogamous relationship...well, will sex with that person even contain feeling or meaning...? Or will you be too hollow to notice? These are things you need to assess for yourself and make a decision about. 

But, you have my love, sweetie! Be strong. You will overcome and conquer! <3 No judgment, only loving support! <3

That just really shines on its own. I love how you tied mythology with such a touchy (?) subject.
