what a fool believes


image credit: rock bottom

i stumbled upon a new blog in my cyber travel. i found it very similar to many gay men's stories (both naive and mature) i have run across in the last couple of years.


click here for blog: twink

my personal belief is that the blog is fictional, but i do also believe it could easily be the words of many of my contemporaries, both twink and seasoned who are seroconverting at alarming rates. and i think it is because, culturally, gay men find powerful personal validation through sexual activity, albeit fleeing validation.

but then, i have my beliefs, too. and i have worked hard to find them so i will try to find a way to respect others' as well. or at least i'll try to respect their right to have them.

this song could so easily be a song to tina or a song to "hot" anonymous encounters....

He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Tryin hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life

She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him...

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe theres a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
Theres nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees...

As a nursing assistant, I volunteer at a local AIDS hospice. I believe I provide good routine care and friendly contact to those who--some of them--are alone. Then, when I leave, I detach and don't wear condoms. I don't equate. I think about this often, but. . . .
