I Looked for Love in Your Eyes

Tim Challies shares a gut-wrenching poem from a woman whose husband is addicted to pornography. Challies explains:

“A few days ago I received an email from a reader of this site, a woman who was responding to some of the articles I’ve written on the subject of pornography. She shared a poem, a bit of free verse she had written in the midst of her husband’s addiction. I wish I could say it was the only email I’ve received from such a woman. Sadly it’s not; not by a long shot. . . I thought I would share this poem. It’s a little bit graphic, but only so far as it needs to be. I think it’s particularly heartbreaking in drawing out the clear connection between pornography and violence. And it’s just a realistic look at how so many men are damaging and destroying their wives and families. It’s reality.”

If you are a man and you struggle with, dabble with, or are addicted to pornography, your soul needs this reality check. Go read it now. When you’re done with that, take a look at the list of resources Justin Taylor has compiled for men struggling with pornography.

    Was she looking for love in her husband’s eyes or desire? There’s physical attraction and emotional desire, and then there is love. . .
