A Love Letter To Bisexual Women

A beating heart, and a head full of

Dreams. You are spectacular. You are

Radiant. You are summer rain and

Fresh flowers that bloom in a garden

.

That is full of possibilities. I know it’s

Hard at times. That maybe it took longer

Than you would have liked to live

Your truth because you thought you had

.

To hide behind the lie of being straight

Or maybe loving a man has made you

Feel like you didn’t quite fit in in queer

Spaces while still not quite fitting in

.

In straight spaces and so you’ve felt like

You fit in nowhere. Living on an island

Where there’s no one around who understands

How your identity has shaped you, how

.

Getting to a place of self-acceptance has

Caused you to hurt and grow and break

And mend. It has made your world bigger

Maybe you still have a preference and know

.

That your orientation is still valid. Maybe you’ve

Heard someone suggest that people like you

Are greedy, confused, or lying. Or you’ve heard

A woman say she would never date a bisexual

.

Because she wanted to be with someone who

Wouldn’t cheat on her. Maybe the stereotypes

Have made you wonder if coming out is a

Mistake, even as you drowned in the anxiety

.

Of hiding who you are from people who

Were supposed to love you. Love should

Not cause anyone this much hurt. If no

One’s told you lately, you should know

.

You aren’t broken. You are brave with an

Endless capacity to be kind and strong

And filled with light. That you’ve learned

To appreciate your ability to fall in love

.

With a sense of humor or a smile or

Just the right person’s presence. You

Find the beauty in it. Even in a world

That may misunderstand you, you exist

.

Without hiding. And that is remarkable

Maybe there are times when you’re not

Sure of what you want, or times when

You’re still figuring yourself out, and

.

That’s okay. Don’t carry around the

Burden of the myth that your whole

Life must be planned out. Let it go

And it will drift away like feathers in

.

The wind and the sun will come out to

Remind you that you’re doing just fine

Maybe you’re still afraid when you meet

Someone new because you’re not sure

.

If they will accept you. And if no one’s told

You lately, fear is not a sign of weakness

It is the prerequisite of courage. You have

A lion’s heart. You have wings because you

.

Have set yourself free to be your best self

Truthful and unshaken. My darling, if I

Could take your hands I’d open your eyes

To the stars and I’d say, look. They shine

.

For someone as lovely and beautiful as you

I know it’s hard at times, but you handle it

So well. You are the wild flowers that bloom

In the field. Different, untamed, and fearless.
