Middle Aged Teen by squibblyquill
Middle Aged Teen
Best guess: something from around the year 2000. Do not use without my permission.

You, if I may so dare to address
You, as it is said, have no favorites.

You are the great outpouring love for all,
Indiscriminately doling out joy and suffering,
Life and its destruction to Sun, virus, flower and Son.

So pardon a weary daughter for this abrasion,
And allow me this worthless abstraction:
If You truly have no favorites,
What cleft divides Love from indifference?
No Favorites?
"God does not have favorites." (Romans 2:11)

Underneath
My imaginary surface
Lies a love

It hovers
Perhaps
Like the tendernesses
You at times dream of

A sea
Of desires
Relapsed
Turned in upon themselves:

Water crushes
As much as it caresses
Enlivens
Even as it oppresses
Passion:
a live coal
in the heart
smouldering
Behind doors
no force of will
can unlock.

It chars the
tenderest places,
Leaving ash
And cooked flesh
in its silent wake.
This lovely rendition of the Fly duet from Offenbach's Orpheus and the Underworld paints in clear terms the obvious sensuality and humor of our ancestors from the 19th century.

Watch Flies in Action! (some viewer discretion advised: sexual themes)
