2007-2008 KELLY AND LIN
(Please click on thumbnail to view full image.)
For too long,
I kept my sexuality to myself,
like some dark secret.
Still, curiosity oozed from my skin,
its scent an exotic pheromone.
I struggled to keep it at bay,
too afraid to surrender to it.
The last thing I expected
when I fell in love with him
was to find freedom.
Now I can explore the limits
of this once hidden territory.
