Together Now, forever Now
      #254817 - 03/15/11 08:59 PM

This is a poem that I wrote a few months after my diagnosis and I sincerely hope that some of you can find strength and solace in these words. the poem has been copywritten so please don't try and copy it because I will sue if reprinted.

Together now, forever now
G.Howard Gilliam

I live with you and I'll die with you;
we're together now, forever now.
You are the consulation prize i earned while yearning for love
Or just a means of exsistence.
Do I exsist?
Why do I exsist now?
For love?----I forget how!
For self---- how could I?
Look at what I've done to me,
careless and wreckless with my precious self
I took me for granted;
Foe one blast at a time, one dime, one night, one person at a time.
How you like me now--- i scream on my knees, angry at no one, everyone, me.
With blood on my fist and tears on my pillow stained with the many lies that I often told myself.
I scream and pray God, where's my mustard seed?
Can I pray this away?
We're together now, forever now---

I hope that i may collaberate with other individuals that are positive and heterosexual around this an other issues. This is the first time that I've share things online. I hope the response is good. Take care Live, love, and grow

I think you poem is absolutely wonderful and quite expressive. It took me back to when I found out I was HIV+ and the thought processes I went through.
