Awakening Woman

I am an awakening woman.
Awakening to the song of my heart.
I can no longer engage in sex
as a substitute for intimacy.
Love-making without the heart
cannot survive my fire.

The fire in my body that consumes
the fallacy of sex defined
by my wounds, religion, male objectification, politics and media.

To lay my body down
in absolute possession of myself
is essential now.
For I have become
The queen of my Life.

I have heard
and I have answered
the call to fully inhabit this temple.
This exquisite incarnation.

And to demand reverence
for this sacred space.
