when i was a younger woman
i used to wear my sexuality like a mask
covered in sequins
a persona
to hide behind
and shine your light back into your own eyes

clothes off
yet rarely naked

now my sexuality is a cavern
deep and dark
soft and inviting
open to you

when you enter
you meet only me

i see the glow of your approach

you bring your light

your fire lights me up
and reveals even more of me

to myself
