States of grace

Filed under: Text — Tags: — Lilac @ 10:00 am

Something I appreciate about polyamory is the grace (which can be) inherent in its practice. There are moments in a poly relationship where one is stung, or fearful. Especially so in a society which values monogamy and writes that into its songs and films, where the message that love is exclusivity is so prevalent it comes unbidden into our hearts and thoughts. Polyamorous folk are not, always, immune to jealousy and fear. The moment where you are struck by a painful emotion and elect not to let it drive you is I think a sort of grace, a bowing to the longer trajectory of joy or love or liberty.

Grace and the inner struggle to do it right, in the service of a greater thing, is deeply admirable in my eyes. The aesthetic and pragmatic converge in this trait: a set jaw, tomorrow’s lights lit.
