Letter to My Body

Intimacy is foreign to me

It’s the company that I long for 

It’s the friend who knows 

My needs 

And no

I don’t mean

Getting in between 

my knees

As if I need D

For a tank that’s already on E

To fuel me..

Would that make me less lonely?

Or 

Would that deepen the void 

Inside me?

 

Leave me 

Confused and 

With trust issues 

Have me agreeing 

That being

Alone is 

Better than lonely

That being untouched 

Is better than 

Being taken 

Advantage of 

 

Since touches

Without intimacy 

Are proven 

Problematic!

Then

Maybe 

Celibacy 

is

The answer 

For me.

This poem is about: 
Me
