Do You Know How to be Your Own Lover?

Do you know what it’s like
to touch yourself
like the lover you’ve never had?

Do you know what it’s like
to receive
yes
I said receive
pleasure
as if you are worthy of all that is good?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to dance from your hips
dropping in
to your inherent sensuality
your inherent freedom
and let the whole world watch?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to expose your neck to the sky
in laugher
to seek joy
in all that you do?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to walk through this world
knowing
that your sexuality
is not a curse
but a gift?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to move through life
knowing that
you don’t have to suffer?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to feel your own skin
so deeply
that your heart leaps in your chest
and sighs
thank you?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to have sex
with conviction
free of guilt
free of shame?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to have a lover
who opens your heart
at the slightest touch?
 
Do you know what it’s like
to be that lover
for yourself?
