Poem: Longing

Longing

He is
safe temptation
testosterone
unlike me
everything I’m told
to want.
She
is sweetness
desirable
everything I cannot touch.

 

For those caught between what society tells them to do – what they “should” want and be – and the real self.

Inspired from the #HeartSoup prompt #280, “Safe”. Posted on my Twitter.
