I HAVE LAIN

I have lain –
In the arms of men;
At the bosoms of women.

I have lain –
But feared in the arms of husband;
Failed in the arms of lovers.

I have lain –
And indulged in the lust of heart;
But avoided the lust of flesh.

I have lain –
In the imagination of dreams;
In the face of reality.

I have lain –
with pain;
And with happiness.

I will lie –
In my future;
And in my death.
