love was never a feeling for me
it was always
a pair of eyes,
when you stormed into my life,
i didn't know what to do with the
riffles inside my chest.
you stood at my door and i didn't
mind you blocking the way.
i thought love meant believing.
so when you lit the matchstick,
i gave you my heart and we turned
our bodies into flames -
frenzied and intense and dangerous.
we went to shards every night just
to let the sun find us whole when the day cracked.
heard love stayed, so i did the same.
witnessed the sun burning a hole on your
side of the bed; the uncreased sheets
fazed by your absence; the coffee mug
craving your kisses more than me.
running away would've been exhausting,
so i stayed and abrased the betrayal down.
the slow hum of your songs now bite my
tongue everytime I try to sing them
because it reminds me how wrong I was
to see you as love
rather than a person with flaws.
now i know,
love will break us into painful
if we'll try to find it in bodies and hearts.
because it can't be contained.
regret is not a feeling for me,
A pair of eyes,
The most rebellious attitude a woman can have in today's society is to be a lady and stay classy. I do not identify myself with being a man. I am a woman, my mother raise me so and I always saw my father working hard, so has my mother. However, their roles were never questioned. Today's day you even have to question who is the man and woman in a relationship. Softness is not weakness. Ladies our feminity is made to balance our men's masculine energy, not us becoming masculine like them. Is even worst how many man are questioning their own manhood, and I know of woman completely delighted about this. I don't know about you ladies, but I don't want to be the one in the Gulf of Mexico drilling oil. From a woman's point of view what once was for equality is way out of hand. You can disregard traditional role as much as you want. It proves my point as to why the family unit in this country is fatal and gets destroyed easily. No loyalty and trust to one another. The woman is either to cold and not nurturing enough and that cannot balance a man at all. I could go on this rant for hours and some of you will still not get it. Do some soul searching! FYI being your authentic feminine self doesn't guaranteed you will keep a man. He probably has issues he needs to work on, but you may attract a potential real one. Like we say in Cuba "Que sea el con los pantalones puestos." 🌻🌻🌻🌻@love.muse.melody #amor#olvido#romance#seduccion#frasesdeamor#versos#poesia#poetry#poemas#poems#poeta#escritores#escritora#lectores#frases#poeta#versos#locuradeamor#escrituras#literature#literatura#writersworld#spilledink#poetrycommunity#wordswithqueens#writersconner#writersnetwork#womenempowerment#womenwhowrites#herheartpoetry
