You’re More Than Just 2.A.M Passion

You’re More Than Just 2.A.M Passion

I never thought I would be that girl. The one who uses cheap wine and a heart on fire as an excuse.

I never thought I could look into your brown eyes and not see him.

I never thought you’d be more than just my favorite Friday night passion.

Your bed was an oasis that took the memories of him whispering into my hair and holding me till our bodies were one, all away.

You were never meant to last.

You were never meant to be more than a temporary numbness.

I never thought you could replace him.

But you did,

and you did it with such a wild fury, sweeping me up in the white sheets and silent promises between us.

Now here I am,

tucked in your arms, legs entangled between yours, and stealing the tiniest of smiles between each moment our lips dance on eachother’s.

The fire that would burn me to my core, lights a passion.

The deep brown in your eyes covers me like a blanket, promising a comfort I never found in his.

Your fingers tracing my hip bones don’t leave a burning touch, but plant flowers in their wake.

Friday nights I could see your smile, crinkling at your eyes.

But I never knew you had dimples that lit up your entire face, until our first Sunday breakfast.

I never knew what his smile looked like in the daylight.

You kept my bones from caving in on all the doubts I planted in myself,

you held me till I melted into the truth of what I never knew.

It’s not my fault he couldn’t love me.

It’s not my fault the flowers in my bones could never bloom in his arms.

It’s not my fault he hated the way I could talk about the things that made me want to live, to dream, to cry, all night long.

It’s not my fault he didn't know I hated how cold it was at night, especially in his bed,

It’s not my fault he wasn’t you.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
