Pleasures Of A Low Sex Drive

Low sex drive,

No sex drive,

Enjoying it,

The yearning, pining, longing gone,

Not missing it a bit.

Distracting thoughts,

One-sided thoughts,

Dissipated into thin, thin air,

Scattered and dispelled God-knows-where.

Who in heaven or hell cares?

Like losing fetters

That bound up mind, heart

(and other parts) for years.

What a delight

To have hormonal chains


All by themselves, fording

Oceans, seas and rivers

Of their own accord

To come to rest

Inside a calm and loving breast

That doesn’t give a hoot


A screw.

      It is immensely satisfying to not only get a comment, but a comment of approval about any of the unconventional and so-called problems I write about. When I’m amused or musing, or just plain observing, being a congenital poet I’m compelled to put the idea into artistic form. So thank you for the approval.
