I was rereading Tremors and the last line just sort of stuck in my head.
"The girl is afraid of love."
It just didn't seem right. I've been stuck on it for the past couple of days. I did some soul searching and a ton of research but I figured out why that wasn't right. I'm asexual. I don't experience sexual attraction. Not the way that most people do. I never have.[link]
^ that should explain it better.
but yeah, I finally wrote something about it.
EDIT: It's been a looong time since I wrote this poem. And since then, I got married and found out that I enjoy sex quite a bit. But at the time I wrote this, I believed that I was asexual. If you're reading my poem and everything I'm saying is clicking, do research and some soul searching. And don't be afraid to stand up for yourself if you are. Don't let anyone bully you into doing something you don't want to do. Not craving sexual intimacy can be a gift so don't be ashamed of it.
