I wonder how he will strip me from myself,
taking off my clothes: shoes, socks, pants, shirt, and my undergarments—
with his hands, will they shake as they bear my skin,
will his eyes see past society’s lies, will they feast on my body,
my most insecure curves, my scars from my past.
Will I help him then, shed away my skin, revealing my muscles-my emotions
in their reflexes, and as he digs past my muscles into my bones-
separating them from their joints, laced with my essence.
Then, only then, will he get to my heart, radiating in it’s iridescent beauty.
Will he accept it for each one of its breath,
for the soul that rests in its chambers.
With me laying there, completely exposed and vulnerable,
in pieces, stripped away and raw—-
will he take the time to put me back together,
sewing my body back to the way it was;
every flaw, imperfection, defect, weakness, scar and stain?
Touching each heart beat, puzzling my bones back,
stitching my muscles, weaving my skin,
and dressing me again.
Only to undress me once more,
and cover me with his hands against my skin,
to only make love to my soul, and not the body I live in.
Around 2001, Wim Delvoye. asked some of his friends to paint parts of their bodies with small amounts of barium and then have sex in actual medical clinics. At exhibitions, the X-rays are presented as giant stained-glass church windows. At a distance you admire the abstract forms, but it is only when you come closer and study it in detail that you see what it is composed of.
The Gemini Woman
A Gemini lady can be very uninhibited and is not overly concerned who knows it. She loves to quip about sex and she loves to put her quips into practice. Remember, Gemini is a masculine sign, and this is very evident in the Gemini woman’s approach to sex. She enjoys pursuit, seduction, and flirting, but is happy to take an active part in the sexual dance. She does not tend to be demure and may find talking trashy a turn-on for herself and her partner. She can be a wanton tease. Gentlemen, if you are interested in a Gemini gal, make a move quickly, or you will be misled and then rejected.
It is a sometimes-unpleasant observation that Gemini equates insults with intimacy. If she gets on a verbal roll, she can be very hurtful. When you call her on it she will say, “I was only joking.” It is not intentional cruelty, but an annoying habit. If you notice this trait, the only thing to do is toughen up, plug your ears, or go to another room. (I lolled)
I’m actually horrified that some marriages turn into this. Are you sure it’s not your deodorant?
