    I wondered if it was me
    if I was destined to
    watch and observe
    how love picked others
    to play with

    what grand love lesson
    is there that needs to be
    taught that I haven't learned?

    I love and laugh,
    compromise and support,
    however,..
    I do have that nasty allergy
    to bull-sshhhh
    isshhh has raised stormy seas
    in my stomach, and
    turned brown eyes from blue to red

    So I packed its bags
    told it to call its boy
    Tired and his twin noncommittal
    to gather its belongings
    threw the remnants out
    and locked all entranceways

    It is but one of my perfect flaws
    please forgive
    I am a work in progress
    pardon me as I tidy up
    those who came before you
    didn't bother to stay and clean up

    If you had plans
    to mess me up, playa
    I'm sorry
    but you're a few years too late
    :kiss:

    My stock is back on rise
    like a phoenix
    I rose from the ashes
    of broken hearts and promises
    too open and loving love
    the thought of it
    and its wonder
    caused hysterical blindness
    :driveby:

    I read, or it was told to me
    years ago, to never love one
    more than self, and at my infancy
    of learning my personal wisdom,
    I thought
    "How selfish!"

    Then I spent a totally selfish night
    alone with myself
    and realized how divine
    my own company was,
    and how in turn, I would be
    a suitable, enjoyable and engaging companion
    to friends, lovers and others
    because I know myself

    No fillers or preservatives

    GOD's child

    Moonchild

    Me, Child

    There is only one.


    Love yourself in the same selfish manner. :kiss:

    That was HOT Jazzy. :devil: Just like you girl. :devil: You really put it down. I'm kind of in that frame of mind more or less these days so I really felt it. Very nice poem.

    And you should enjoy every second of "yourself"...for that's who's with you when all else fails. And the more you're with "you" ...the more divine you become, and when that happens, you'll settle for nothing less from anyone else.
    very good piece, I like and feel it truly...
