You Cannot

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong . You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men but y doing for them what they could be doing for themselves.

~Abraham Lincoln

First Impressions

First encounter, first impressions
Gentle elegance of timeless beauty
Attractions spanning beyond desire
Darkness hides tender kisses of luck

Power of a machine that gently purrs
Moments captured by a magnificent feline
Determined, demanding, yet so desirable
Impatience tempered by innocence

Seeking the night, sharing a moment
Yearning but yielding, full of questions
Moans of pleasure of the next embrace
Silhouette of form, taste of your lips

Sharing a simple sway of romance
Hidden glances of long good-byes
Projections lead to stolen sleep
Lost in thought of dreams to be
