This is a very special song to me.

Written and sung by two women I met when i was on holiday in Lesvos.

On our last night a whole group of us sat round a fire on the beach and they played and sung this.

It is one of my favourite songs of all time .. listen to the words … they are so true.

You

Torn…

A friend of mine from Pink Sofa sent me this last night and asked if I would write something about it on my blog.

“What do you do when your hearts in two places,
you feel burnt but you´re torn inside,
you feel love but you just can´t embrace it.
When you´ve found the right one at the wrong time. ”

It reminds me of the song by Mary Macgregor  “Torn between Two Lovers” 

You can hear it here  –  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfCd4zqeveE

It is basically a reflection of a woman who is torn .. a situation I found myself in a long, long time ago.  I had to decide between the comfort of love or the excitement of passion.  I chose the comfort basically because my heart was torn but my head knew that the “passionate” one could never give me the peace of mind that I find so important.

Looking back, do I think I made the right decision?  Yes I do, I don’t regret it but I just wish that the “passionate” one had appeared in my life at a different time. 

What would happen if we met now?  Very little I think, too many years and lovers have passed under the bridge since then.  I always say I have no regrets, but maybe I just have a tiny wee “what if”!

My experience is a tiny, inconsequential, event that didn’t turn my world upside down, it just gave it a wee bit of a shoogle (shake!).. but for many women, especially for those who discover their sexuality later in life, it can be a horrendous situation.

These women are a lot braver than me .. and the feeling of duty can be a terrible millstone around their neck. 

As lesbians we are sometimes scornful of ladies who claim to be Bi or who have children, we strive for equality and acceptance yet in our own world we exclude.   Lets just try to be a little more understanding.
