Loving More Than One

Polyamory as it relates to my life and written from my perspective only. MY thoughts, feelings and opinions.

Considering Polyamory

on November 13, 2009

I’ve come across a few things about polyamory lately that I’d like to share. They have been written and shared by someone other than myself.



There is a promise here, in the paired place,
of a safe ease without the buzz
of what next, what if, of only.

And yet here, I am sometimes restless.
As if my soul is wired for action, for split
second love and last minute partners,
adventure in each turning.

As if I am alive only
when I walk the edge
of maybe.
As if certainty is certain death.

And I think to myself:
do I have “commitment issues”?

Perhaps I commit fully
to not knowing.
The way a warrior
commits to battle—
with my life.

Or the way a monk
commits to God,
in each holy moment
with no expectations
for exclusivity.

How special we make each other
when we promise to love
in twosomes, as if we
are the past pair on earth
and our narrow love
will save the day.

I imagine God
loves in multiplicity,
and with no conditions.
That God has figured out
that there is more than
enough of her to go around,
that love is never
in short supply.

I can’t imagine God
saying, sorry,
I’m taken.
