How many men….. ?

How many men can a woman
love at a time?

As many as her heart
can hold at a time.

She loves with her brain
she loves with her eyes
don’t forget her face
that mirrors her heart.
She loves with a smile
she loves with a smirk.
She loves with loud words
she loves with whispers.
She loves with her hands
her smooth/coarse palms.
She loves with her gait
the way she walks.
She loves with her body
every gesture every stance.

It’s not about sex,
she loves in hundred
different ways.

And if you are wondering
why she does so
it is because
God made her so.

And when she loves,
she loves with all her might.
