Maybe the ropes ("threads") are the ones our brothers here throw to us, to save us from drowning ...

I don't know if you have time to read (it seems to be a luxury anymore for most of us), but there is an excellent book that may shed some light on life for you. It's called "Necessary Losses", by Judith Viorst. It talks about the choices that we make in life and the losses that we encounter which are a necessary part of life. It comes in paperback - I highly recommend it.

just wanted to add this, marred 20+ years, now things are different.

I just dont fit into a label, I am human and my life is different now very little I am me and continue to be me. The person I choose to love is who he is. It is just hard to fit the steriotype that is out there. I struggled too long and now I am just michael joseph nothing more nothing less.

Title of my book I am writing.

Little Boy Blue

things are different, confusion over sex,
I did not understand the difference between
being confused and being gay,

I never wanted sex with men, still don't.

But after several men wanted sex with me I did not know what was love and what was abuse.
I know I am not gay, I just wanted someone to love me. I guess you can be loved with out sex.

That is what I have learned.
I wanted love.

Michael,

That's one of the most tragic ways abuse affects a boy, I think. All he wants is love, to be special, wanted, important; and abuse teaches him that for that he has to give sex. And to who? Someone who will never give him those things he wanted.

And we wonder where the confusion comes from.

Much love,
Larry

Michael,

That's another one that can't be made right for us. But what's important now? Have a look at your poem about love. I think that says it all.

Much love,
Larry
