Gideon’s Challenge


Feelings of failure
bite deep into flesh
and I ache
for the box
with sharp things
long ago sent away
into safekeeping
as the realization
that the failing grade
in matters of the heart
is an F
not E for Effort
but F… for Failure

  1. Aww baby, you did not fail. You have not failed…
    I love you, precious
    We’re going to get through this
    And seeing what you’ve been hiding for me, it helps
    Even as it makes my need to protect you stronger, it still helps to have a glimpse into what you’re really feeling.

    I love you. You haven’t failed, man. I’m still here…right here
    And you will not being using sharp things.
    I’m here love. I’ve got you. Even when things are chaos, I’ve got you
