POEM: NON-INTIMACY

I sleep beside you

Cause I do

Cause we’re in relationship

Where’s the sex

Where’s the connection

Where’s your mind?

Hidden in a dark door from your past of

Non-intimacy?

So where does that leave us now…

(Hyper sexuality as a symptom of Bipolar II can lead to promiscuity, which can result in personal struggles when it comes to experiencing intimacy. However, you don’t have to experience episodes of mania to find yourself lacking the ability to be intimate. Anyone can be prone to challenges when it comes to sexuality in the bedroom.)
