I placed my
Sexuality on
A pine table,
Twisting it this
Way and that
Until it reflected
The light coming in
From the open
Kitchen window.

Once satisfied
With its placement
I squinted at it,
Trying to decide
What next to do
With it.

Should I place
It on the center
Table of my front
Romm, displayed
For all to see,
All who enter
My home, be they
Friend or foe,
Lover or the man
Who has come
To fix the
Faulty heater.

Or should I hide
It away in my
Frilly things drawer
Next to my rabbit
And my whip,
A secret I share
With a lover
Who in turn shares
His with me.

I am not
Ashamed of it,
My sexuality,
But I have
No desire to
Speak of it
Like the newly
Bought gadget,
Expounding on the
Features, most
Of which I will
Never use.

After much thought,
I picked it up
And made my way
To my bed chamber.
Instead of placing
It among my frilly
And kinky things,
I placed my
Sexuality on my
Bedside table,
At the base of
My lamp.

A fitting place
For such an
Exquisite thing,
Not hidden away
Nor in the open
To be pawed by
Undeserving eyes.

I placed my
Sexuality where
It truly belonged
In the one place
Where only trusted people
May enter.

Exquisite, perfectly written. Yes, I believe so many people treat their sexuality like toys, profaned and debased, to be compared with others. As time goes on, I see the sacredness of sexuality and treasure what it represents - and the true ecstasy it brings. Much love, Mosk

Neat poem. I suppose at one time I carried mine around with me and then framed it with home when the commitment allowed.

I think you find the right place with it.

Moonie said...

I love the idea of carrying it around like a beautiful flower arrangement that must have just the right place.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

And that was the perfect place to put it.

This is a wonderful poem on a wonderful and bold theme. It is only for those who are trusted to see...so you have placed it in the right place.

This left me smiling at the rightness of the decision.
