I hope you'll understand,

I've parcelled my heart
up in postcards
and back-alley blow jobs
and I might
still want to kiss
other people and
touch other people
and love other people

but I'll never want to
come home to anyone else.
And some nights I'll be sleeping next to you but my heart will curled up by her grave, but I'll be with you and that's the part that matters, right?

Woah. I like it. The A.C almost feels like part of the piece.

This is really well written - achey and bitter-sweet. :)

I don't think you ever should love more than one person, having found out for myself how hard it is when the person you love even kisses someone else, but I can definately see how it happens.

Thank you! :heart:

Allow me to explain, I don't mean love in the physically intimate sense. I mean that no-one should ever feel that they need to choose who to love. I understand that where I say "I might still want to kiss other people..." it can be confusing, but I really do just mean that there are people I would kiss were I not in love with the man I'm with :3 it doesn't mean I condone cheating, I know how terribly that tears people apart.

It's also kind of a reminder to myself not to forget the people I've loved in the past, and not to un-love them just because they're not in my life today. I can still love them as wholly as I love my lover, but he'll be the one I call home :heart:

I know what you mean now! :) Yeah - like how you can fancy the pants off quite a few guys, but you may only really like one of them.

Aww, that's quite a sweet thought. I don't think you ever really stop loving them, per say, you just... Store them away somewhere inside, and find bits of them in the next person.

....truly touching! Even prostitutes and whores have a heart capable of loving someone else- i guess that's what you're trying to say. Simply superb! Simple words,and a deep yet simple meaning expressed. Awesome =)!!

Oh! Not as such, no. It's more that I'm a believer in the ability to love completely more than one person :) I know that I, personally, love wholly at least three people, though I will only call one home. But I do also believe that sex workers love as much as anyone, there's no question about it. A person's profession needn't encompass their ability to love at all, and many sex workers are in the business because they like sex, they're good at it, so why not make money from it? It's no different than being a writer, and possibly being a writer is more intimate, because writing requires giving out pieces of your heart and making yourself vulnerable.

Thank you!
