I have heard it said
many times
that if we truly love ourselves
then we don’t need
anyone else
...that may be...
...I guess...
...I’ll have to settle...
for being a failed narcisist
I have found
more passion
in life
with someone
even in heartbreak
than I ever would have alone
... God ...
wanted that type of relationship
when He created
... Adam ...
for himself
... Eve ...
for Adam
Why bring up religion
Maybe its just the musings
of an old man
at 1:12 in the morning
I sure would have liked
to have met
I would have liked
to have asked her did the Apple taste...
...was it worth it...

I am sure Adam and Eve had many regrets just like we do when we sin against God. I am sure their rememberance of that first bite in hindsite was very bitter indeed....Everyone neeeds someone, but not everyone has someone....I enjoyed reading your thoughts...debs~

Some say the first Adam ate the apple because he knew it was the only way he and Eve could remain together... I've also heard it said the second Adam went to the cross because it was the only way he and his Eve could remain together.... One could find many meanings in this... many depths and layers... but what I focus on... is the relationships... All things are relational...Perhaps...
it would...
make more...
senseIf we first...
on the relationship
we have...
ourselves...we must be willing...
to eat the apple...
to mount
the cross...before
the first drop...
of passion
is spilt...
for another

I'd like to ask Adam was Eve worth it? Something I guess we will never know. I only wish I would have been less innocent and maybe then I wouldn't have been so hurt. Married at 17 and separated at 62. I some how think I missed a lot of fun along the way. A long time to never have felt passion and joy.

true power/love is found not in power... but in innocence... yet there is no more powerful love than innocence free of ignorance... the kind of love that knows the heart... that knows the soul... battle tested... scarred... and proven to know...the best gifts cannot be bought or sold... but are given freely... by the ones we love

just as the sweet teased
the new taste buds
it turned to vinegar
the gnats clothed with guilt
crumbled at her feet
consuming - invisible

Truer Words were never spokenfor while...
some women are born with hearts fast and free
that become shackled and chained by time
some men are born with sleeping heart made of stone
waiting to be broken and through the breaking awoken

The eternal call for our soul mate is part of our psyche and you have described it beautifully. I feel for Eve as she copped such a bad rap in her attempt to try something new. Adam on the other hand seemed to do what boys sometimes do=not paying attention to his woman and taking her for granted. Maybe that apple was a wake up call for men in general and they still haven't quite answered it!!! Just kidding boys ;)

Copy that on all counts :)I have always had a thing for women with tattoos... AND Tattooed nuns are a lot of fun!!! Two of my favorite archetypes rolled into one... Like Eve the mother of necessity...Either way I bet she looked HOT in candy apple red... heres to finding my Eve... somewhere... sometime... someway:)
