Complete

19 Oct

Complete

She sees him saunter by
She gives out a soft sigh
She wishes that he felt the same
About her, that an equal flame
That burned for her as she has for this guy

But he is just polite
Near her he feels no fright
He simply smiles and is quite nice
But he does not feel the same vice
That grips her when she is around this knight

He leaves and she’s left feeling
Incomplete and revealing
Like something’s missing in her life
She thinks if she becomes his wife
That she will undergo some soulful healing

And that is what is wrong
With all of those who long
And pine and crush and fantasize
For someone beautiful and wise
To “complete” them, they do not see how strong

And beautiful and wise
They are without allies
Complete already on their own
Complete with just their skin and bone
Complete without those relationship ties

A partner, spouse or mate
A bride, groom, or a date
May compliment and benefit
But one day we must all admit
To be complete on our own is our fate

People may come and go
Loved ones buried below
But no matter who may be around
“Completeness” will never be found
Because no other person can bestow

Completeness since it’s there
We’re complete if we dare
To not rely on others to
Make us feel complete, happy, new
There’s no need for dreaming, wishes and prayer

One day this girl admits
Accepts, concedes, permits
Herself to feel complete alone
Which changes her once needy tone
To confident, content and plenty wits

Her old crush does return
But old flame does not burn
She no longer needs him to be
The missing piece to set her free
For him no longer does she pine and yearn

He notices her now
Intense gaze on her brow
A confidence so few possess
He steps toward her to assess
And sees someone who has a complete glow

And it makes him feel small
He feels his courage stall
He sees how content this girl seems
And so the young man smiles and beams
And wants to know more ‘cause she does enthrall

He asks her for a date
“Pick you up at 8?”
She smiles and shakes her head at him
“I’ll be working out at the gym
Maybe some other time, for now you’ll wait”

He blinks and is confused
His massive ego bruised
Incomplete because she turned
Him down and his offer was spurned
He can’t recall when last he was refused

And he begins his own
Journey to what she’s known
That completeness does not depend
On family, stranger or friend
Just on the person there when you’re alone

Love Is…

3 Mar

Love Is…

Love is second nature
Love Is reflex, love’s innate
No struggle or effort needed
To care for your mate

Love obliterates ego
To point where there’s no “I”
Love for someone else bids that
Selfish ego goodbye

Love is instinct, built within
Our blood and DNA
Love does not need to “cool down”
True love has no delay

We see it in our animals
In how they care for young
Inherent duty to protect
The small lives which have sprung

We see it in the packs that travel
Together in wild
Loyalty for each other
Even the beasts reviled

But true love is so rare among
The human race it seems
A concept that only exists
Within most people’s dreams

Because the human mind is shackled
With such selfishness
Fear of hurt, embarrassment
Of having to confess

Their true love for another
Worry seeps in and corrupts
Choking the life out of love
As the ego erupts

Love is never angry and
Love is never hostile
‘Cause love is made of empathy
And ‘cause love walks a mile

In the loved one’s shoes and love
Lets go of own opinion
Love is not a slave to fear
And is not ego’s minion

Love is brave and bold and love
Makes no apologies
Love envigors, love strengthens
Love heals, love tames, love frees

From “me,” from “I,” from “myself” and
It opens selfish eyes
To smallness of the ego while
It makes the spirit rise

Watering Flowers

15 Sep

“There is no effect more disproportionate to its cause than the happiness bestowed by a small compliment.”  ~Robert Brault

Watering Flowers

There was a flower named Woman
Who, much like other flowers
Needed watering to bloom
But the name of these showers

Were “compliment” and “gratitude”
“Acknowledgement” and “praise”
These simple words of kindness made
This flower’s petals raise

Unfortunate to say the least
That there were very few
Who made the effort to water
These flowers so they grew

The thought was silly to most men
Who felt abashed to say
Anything that would help these
Flowers bloom all the way

Or if they didn’t think it silly
Then they were afraid
That despite good intentions, the
Flower would be dismayed

Harassment, innuendo, or
Some other type of tease
Said only to get something
So they themselves could please

One truth about the world is that
There are so few who speak
Words that are not intended
To be a harsh critique

There are so few who compliment
That any flattery
Will almost always be taken
With elation and glee

“You look nice today,” “I love
What you’ve done with your hair”
“You have a lovely smile,” few men
Ever seem to dare

“You’re beautiful,” “You’re gorgeous,”
“You are stunning,” “You’re so cute”
Every man can say these things
But most of them are mute

But pay attention if you have
The guts to say these things
You men, look closely, see what kind of
Radiance it brings

To Woman’s face when she’s watered
With this kind of affection
The pure smile, the joyful eyes
And rosy, warm complexion

So speak up, men, be Warriors
Not just with swords and spears
But with your words which can be liquid
Life to Woman’s ears

Remain in Light

29 Dec

“Physical infidelity is the signal, the notice given, that all fidelities are undermined.” ~Katherine Anne Porter

 

Remain in Light

This message is for warriors
Who have a loved one who
Has done something so selfish that
It’s not just made them blue

This message is for warriors
Who feel they’ve been betrayed
By loved ones who could not resist
Their urges to get laid

They grew complacent, they got bored
They wanted something fresh
They squandered something deeper for
Relations of the flesh

They’ve left you angry, hurt, confused
And you feel your light fade
You feel there is a price for their
Selfishness to be paid

I’m here to tell you now the best
Advice you’ll ever get:
Remain in light, brave warrior
Don’t you dare get upset

They know that they have shown weakness
And their guilt haunts them now
They want you in their darkness too
So that you bend and bow

Hold your words of hatred and
Unclench your angry fist
Remain in light, do not hurt back
Revenge you must resist

Remain in light as you feel it
Does slip away from you
Remain in light and forgive how
They were weak and untrue

Be on guard, they’ll try to put
Some of the blame your way
Remain in light as you choose soft
And patient words to say

Let them writhe in turmoil as
They try to make some sense
Their ego tries to soothe their heart by
Going on defense

Remain in light and never say
Or do things you’ll regret
Remain in light and do not add
Yourself to their dark debt

Remain in light while you decide
Where you will go from there
‘Cause only in the light will you
Be able to repair

Or find the clarity to see
The new path you should take
Remain in light, brave warrior
For your own honor’s sake

Lost Love

27 Nov

Love Lost

Broken hearts are often told
“It’s better to have lost
A true love than to never have
Had it, despite the cost”

Many of us go into
Relationships on guard
Refusing to be vulnerable
Because we were left scarred

By the one who broke our heart
An unrequited love
Or someone who got bored of us
And quickly disposed of

Maybe they just “grew apart”
Or found somebody new
Or maybe it actually has
Little to do with you

Maybe it’s because they’re small
Or selfish or self-hating
Or are just happy to always
Be compulsively dating

Regardless of the scar that’s left
I know this much is true:
A warrior is not afraid
Of how things will ensue

If they open themselves up
To vulnerability
The lack of fear for themselves is
What sets their true love free

I can only tell you of
The few that I can claim
To have loved romantically
Without an ounce of shame

And when I opened myself up
And bared my heart and soul
The response has always been:
“You have made me feel whole

Complete, content, and satisfied
No longer wanting more
Also fearless and inspired
Because how you adore”

It’s true that not all loves will last
Some will just drift apart
While others will explode within
And tear up your poor heart

But when you think back and wonder
If it was a mistake
Please take solace in this knowledge
Though you may hurt and ache:

Despite the scars it may leave you
Don’t ever feel ashamed
Of being fearless and refusing
Your love to be tamed

Don’t you dare think twice that you
Should have been more subdued
There are enough in that group so
Yourself do not include

Think outside of yourself and
Instead think what you’ve given
Regardless of how many things
Are yet to be forgiven

Regardless of if the bridge is
Too burned to be repaired
Your duty on this Earth is to
Show that you always cared

It’s to show you always were
Fearless with all your love
The kind that’s only shown by the
Creator up above

No conditions to apply
And no rules to lay out
Just a pure and selfless love
That will leave little doubt

Yes, it’s better to have loved
And lost than not at all
As long as you just focus on
The courage, not the fall

Chemical Beauty

13 Oct


Chemical Beauty

Lipstick, mascara
Some blush on the cheeks
Hair curled and tousled
With highlights and streaks

Bright red nail polish
And long fake eyelashes
Bleached teeth that blind
When their smile flashes

Some girls work so hard
To accentuate
Their natural beauty
To increase heart rate

To arouse and enliven
The men in their lives
These sweethearts and girlfriends
And partners and wives

Paint themselves up
And in doing so hide
Themselves with every
Cosmetic applied

With every brow tweezed
With every grey dyed
With every injection
Their true selves they hide

Some take it further
Go under the knife
To cling to their beauty
They’ll endure much strife

The saying “skin deep”
Is quite apropos
A fitting way to
Describe those shallow

Concerned with the surface
With what the eyes see
Myself? I prefer
The ones who are free

The ones confident
To wear their true face
To see blemishes
And not try erase

To embrace their wrinkles
The strands of grey hair
To not care if men
Will notice and stare

The ones who know that
The kind of men who
Just care how you look
Do not have a clue

On how to look deep
And see what’s within
They’re not after heart
They’re just after skin

So next time you stand
In front of the mirror
Holding that lipstick
Lean a bit nearer

Take a look closer
At what you are covering
Look close enough
And you’ll be discovering

You’re using the products
Of companies that
Want you to think
Your beauty is flat

That you need accents
And highlights and blush
To make all the men
Excited and gush

The truth is there’s nothing
As beautiful as
The confidence that
A warrior has

The feeling that she
Doesn’t need factories
To make products that
Will help her appease

Nothing’s as gorgeous
As women who know
They’re pretty enough
To makeup forgo

The stunning ones who
This wisdom do reap:
That chemical beauty’s
Only skin deep
