Discretion and denial
hiding self within her flesh
losing unanswered wondering
within the embraces of passion
I wanted it to be enough
like a final solution
to inner pain of gender confusion
– forgive me for burying my truth within words
the words of intimate love
the linguistic torment and cries of pleasure
without resolution
