i fell in love with my cousin when i was younger i know it is wrong but she was my first.. my first real kiss, my first real ecstasy and release was experienced in her arms.. i loved her for many years, then the inevitable occurred we were caught in the act and from then on i had to play the role of a straight woman. but, i still dream of her, she is my release in my dreams.. i have not seen her in years and i know we can never be, but she introduced me to my sexuality.. sex has never been that amazing ever.. i am very attracted to women but i compress that side of me.i doubt myself and convince myself that i am straight.. "it was only a faze" but, when i am drunk.. my inner desires come out and all i want is the warm embrace of a woman, the scent of a woman..to caress a woman's breasts and to explore what makes her a woman.. to take her to that place where there is no inhibition, you know that place that seems like heaven on earth.. i want to fall in love with a woman, take care of her and grow old with her.. my inner most desires are to be loved by this woman.. i just wish i could find this woman.. because it is so hard to meet women in Kenya.. or maybe its just me. i don't know.. i am not getting younger but i hope.. someday soon i will meet her.
