Parable Of The Four-Poster - Erica Jong  

Because she wants to touch him, she moves away.

Because she wants to talk to him, she keeps silent.

Because she wants to kiss him, she turns away & kisses a man she does not want to kiss.

He watches, thinking she does not want him.

He listens, hearing her silence.

He turns away, feeling her distant & kisses a girl he does not want to kiss.

They marry each other – A four-way mistake.

He goes to bed with his wife thinking of her.

She goes to bed with her husband, thinking of him.

All this in a real old-fashioned four-poster bed.

Do they live unhappily ever after?

Of course.

Do they undo their mistakes?


Who is the victim here?

Love is the victim.

Who is the villain?

Love that never dies.


By Peace Truth

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
