One and only lover
Never will I find another
Stares linger throughout supper
Always so gentle and tender
Lay with me forever
Your kisses I savor

The courses varied from embroidery to home economics
My counterparts said I would be the perfect homemaker
I was thinking more in the range of agrophysics
Seemed less likely than being the class heartbreaker

The women around me aspired to be mothers and caregivers
I looked beyond the stars and felt a flicker of hope
I may abide by the rules but walk that fine line with the sinners
Its the end of the term this will be a slippery slope

They said I looked indecent
I bore down my head in utter embarrassment
My mother said I frustrate her
I looked away longing for acknowledgment
My first love failed to understand me
Thank God for that for my life would have been a disappointment

To be an artist
Creating a vision
Nobody else is better at it
Capturing the moments of the season

Tormented internally is my story
The life of an invalid is not admirable
Sometimes I wish to revel in that glory
I fear my inadequacies render me incapable

I hurt and cry within
Funny how they think my life is sublime
I do wish I was more pristine
My showmanship would withstand the test of time

I dare taste
I hope the best
Tender and moist
Decadence unparallel
Swim away will you
Within my ready palate

Paint her lips
Slip on the satin
Prep her bossom
Powder her nose

Tweak her eyebrows
Smell of lavender
Drape her long legs

Cascading hair
Or perhaps not
Shimmering lotion
Perfect poise

One last check
Laced neckline
Then the gun holster
Simmer down boys


My face is flooded
The taste salty and sad
Memories too painful to remember
A volcano has erupted within
My insides are eroded

The past is insignificant
The present is bountiful
You, a distant memory
Me, a new woman
I see the clouds parting and the sun emerging

Its true isn't it?
My persistence has paid off
I am on top of the world
Its cold and lonely up here

Is it time yet?
I have conquered it all
Seen many lands near and far
My companion out of sight

Must I leave so soon?
No family to speak of
I lay here with all my possessions
My diamonds, rubies and fine things

Love them
Need them
Cannot really do without them

Succumb to them
Fight them
Need them

Call them
Cry over them
Sing for them

Triumph over them
Celebrate them
Bear children for them

Grow old with them
Share with them
Remember with them
Die with them


He fills my mind
Feeds my soul
Brings home
Takes me whole

He lives in me
Grants me life
Shows me the way
Hurts me so

He takes it all
Gives it back
He is mighty


My legacy
Words misunderstood
Mistakes made, still making

My legacy
Thoughts of another time
Another era of grandiose misgivings

My legacy
Show me the door
Down comes the curtains
