An Apology from Adam to Eve (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


Dearest Eve,

I really hope you can forgive me for putting you in your place.
            Wouldn’t you have done the same thing had you been in my place?

We had Eden
            …and we lost it
                        The world was in
                                    …my delicate hands
                                                Earthly perfection
                                                            …but I lost  us, you
                                                                        I am the snake
                                                                                    …I am THE FALL!
FORGIVE ME EVE!

I blamed you and now a woman is nothing but the woe of a cowardly man
            Take my hand and please love me today, and forgive me for yesterday, baby.

Will you take me in your arms again and make me your equal, Eve?
-Love Adam

INTRODUCING HEADLINER: Through the Tears (Steve Duhon - Carencro, LA)

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
