I Discover AsexualityMature

I Discover Asexuality

On reading the newspaper,

My eye spotted an article,

Asexuality;

People with no sexual inclinations,

They do exist.

 

I thought about this,

I knew I loved women,

I had crushes only on women,

Emotionally, romantically,

I wanted only women,

Yet I sexually desired no-one.

 

At twelve I had of course,

Learnt about sex education,

Yet I knew I didn't want sex,

And this made no difference,

To my romantic feelings for women.

 

I had believed myself unique,

My uninterest in sex,

Was like my dislike of tea and coffee.

Up until this moment,

I had used the term platonic.

 

I recalled years ago,

How my primary school friends,

On learning of my love for Hillary,

Had naturally assumed and asked,

If I wanted to sleep with her.

 

I had denied this,

Though back then,

I had attributed this,

To being too young,

Yet as the years went by,

I was aware I had no sex drive,

Yet I fell in love with women.

 

On the computer,

I brought up Questweb,

Our homepage and search engine,

And researched asexuality.

 

Four specific romantic orientations,

Did I find out about,

Hetro, Homo, Bi and aromantic,

And naturally identified,

As homo-romantic asexual.

The End
