She fucked him to remember
She fucked him to forget
She fucked him to feel beautiful
She fucked him to be someone else
She fucked him to drown out the pain
She fucked him to feel alive

Because when he was deep inside her
That’s when the world made sense

      1. The line is drawn between appreciated and being used. At the end of the day when you aren’t having orgasms there better be something else that keeps two people together. If there isn’t…then what are you doing?
        That’s what separates fucking and making love! In general people fuck to fill a void.

        1. I agree fully.
          I feel I should clarify that this poem does not reflect real life for me personally. Just thoughts I had and wrote down.
          I always appreciate your comments though. You make me think. I like that.

  1. I think this would be me if certain details of my life were different. It makes me realise that a lot of us aren’t really so different in terms of what we need. I like your rawness, Tara. That’s what I relate to, and what keeps me coming back.

    1. I can understand that. I think what I was trying to convey was that we all have different reasons for the things we do. Whether born of need or want or self-hate or a desire to grow or desperation or love or wanting to be accepted or a hundred other things. And I agree, in essence we all want the same things, whether we are two or eighty-two. We want to be loved and cared for. To be seen and understood. To be protected and accepted.

      1. Actually, you put it so much better than I was trying to with my comment. We all have reasons and we all have needs. The details of our stories may be different but we’re all the same when you get right down to it.
