Where Others Have Been

    Where Others Have Been

    I can’t do this with you
    Being with you is a sin
    You’ve invited me to a place
    Where others have been
    You’re not virgin territory
    Neither am I
    Doing you would be the apocalypse of me
    I would surely die

    Why put me in this position
    Under your temptation, begging me to give in
    To a place others have discovered
    A place where others have been
    You see the ring on my finger
    And I see you still don’t care
    The word No used to be hard for me to say
    Now I’m planning to stay out of Hell

    I wish I’d been like this before
    Instead of someone with so many regrets
    Letting others go to a place
    Where others have been
    So many feelings destroyed in my hurricane
    So many relationships I helped go bad
    Over 15 minutes average of pleasure
    These memories I want to forget

    There’s nothing wrong with my vision
    I’m not naïve and I won’t pretend
    That I don’t recognize your intentions
    To take me where others have been
    Like a mirror, you’re an object closer than you appear
    So I have got to walk away
    Your touch is cunning and venomous
    Like the world’s most poisonous snake

    I will not lose this clean slate
    Jesus Christ and my wife are my best friends
    I will not enter your circle of death
    A circle where others have been
    For you to know, I am untouchable
    I’ve become a better man
    And your beauty, although fine, it’s skin deep
    It’s a place where others have been

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
