Licking Her Wounds

Licking her wounds

New found freedom of bare chest
Heartbeat so close, delight
A woman without her breasts
Newfound freedom of bare chest
As a girl child, born again
A woman without her breasts
Is fully sensual, free of weight, liberated
As a girl child, born again
Without shame, openly exuberant
Fully sensual, free of weight, liberated
Memory of suckling baby, objects of infatuation
Without shame, openly exuberant
Fetish exonerated, “boobs” they are called
Memory of suckling baby, objects of infatuation
No longer a sex object, freedom
Fetish exonerated, “boobs” they are called
Heartbeat so close, delight
No longer a sex object, freedom
Licking her wounds
