Coming

Sex is not forgiveness
Sex is not hoping for the spring of a new kinship or the winter of a dwindling one
Sex does not replace emotion
Sex alone does not satisfy
Sex does not reconnect what has been torn apart by sex
Sex can’t transform someone you love
Sex isn’t a replacement for love
Sex doesn’t heal physical wounds or emotional ones
Sex doesn’t solidify a marriage or keep one together
Sex doesn’t show up for you when everyone has let you down
Sex isn’t an approval
Sex shouldn’t be worshiped
Sex shouldn’t be given power
Sex can’t heal sexual abuse
Sex isn’t intimacy
Sex never does what it says it will do
Sex rules my pride and my ego
Sex makes me feel understood
Sex makes me feel lonely
Sex never leaves you alone
After sex, he leaves me alone
Even with a promise to withstand its power, straying from a luminous act, waiting for glory, I’m still left with the torment of what I tried to rid of with sex.
