I remember when I first discovered porn. Fascinated by this world of unleashed sexual expression, I couldn’t get enough of it. I thought I’d outgrow my porn habit over time. But I never did.

So tell me, what’s the difference between homicide in the streets and bloodshed on the battlefields of Iraq. […] The only difference there is between a soldier with PTSD and one of my students with it is that a soldier gets to leave the battlefield, while my kids go home to it."

You love me well.
You grow me.
You make me feel like anything is possible with you.
You make me feel like anything is possible in me.
The expanse of my dreams widens in your presence, and the measure of my love runs deeper because of you.
You love me well.
