Being as I am bisexual, I know what it can be like for a woman to wake up next to her female partner. But, I'd wondered what it might be like for a heterosexual man to wake up next to his love of his life. So, I wrote this poem, below, to try to capture it, well, of what it might be like for a man.


I look at you
Laying next to me,
And I take in the beauty
Of you
As you silently sleep.

Your silken skin
And thin body
Is God's gift to man.
And as my eyes roam over you
I'm moved by you, completely.

I want to touch you
And to have you,
But I resist to let you sleep,
Keeping my urges at bay
Of taking in all of you.

A Goddess, I see,
Laying next to me,
As I stare down, over you.
This sight, so intoxicating.
I thank God for giving you to me.
