On The Feminine Periphery

Effusive femininity emboldened to emasculate
Masculine proprietary arrogance
An obvious chasm engulfs them both,
conflict is their prize

Simple… little… words… that… hurt
Considerate breaths inhale life

Formulaic illusions are so boring… why chase?
A fool’s paradise looks immaculate with closed eyes
Nature reciprocates defiance on a chilling dish
Immerse yourself too far in an unfamiliar world,
you’ll return bitter and corrupted

Vociferous calm stirs a calamity in the eyes of blind owls
Newly matured lion’s manes makes the pride eternally envious
Burning female dogs and women of spite, growl inaudible sounds
Yet, cold puppies love their momma so

Opposites are never resolved, they compliment their differences
Social envy with biological roots
Ecclesiastic answers instill an important guide
Rhetorical constructs confuse impressionable minds

Cantankerous emotional outbursts are obtuse
Benevolence and humility assure an honest victory
Narcissistic deference erodes compassion;

it takes time to see

Mistaken assumptions from infallible human minds
Turn your back, and reality is still there
The choice is clear
Rights are chosen
What’s there is not always correct

Reality is a matter of perception and the past is always hunting us..these verses reminded me of my past..
The ancients had maps with the unknown territories marked "hic sunt leones", meaning "there are lions", and that was a sign for the dangers of the unknown..
Sometimes I feel that in life we should have a map marked with signs like that..we could avoid getting into "unfamiliar worlds" and avoid getting hurt..especially when we love.

@ amber7dragonfly:

It's tough to find our way back from fantasy. It's tough to navigate through reality. I guess we just do the best we can.

@ brea:

I'm not sure people understand that you CAN'T take words back. Words have meaning, even if some folks don't think so.

@ Goddess:

I’m not sure how “deep” my writing is; I’m just trying to write. But I understand your compliment and believe me: I APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN I CAN SAY. Thank you dearly, and please don’t be a stranger.

Glad to see you still stop by. Please don’t stop commenting, it helps to have you around.

Okay, so this is like real good stuff, but almost depressing. Why? Because sometimes the whole romance thing seems too complicated, and makes me want to leave it alone. Is it really worth it in the end? All the emotional ... stuff....

I know words cut deeper than knives... I have the scars inside of me to prove it. But I've weilded that same knife too. But I do like to live in the rose colored glass world of "It is better to have loved & lost, than not to have loved at all".

That being said, I'm very spiteful towards most men because the two I gave my heart to cheated on me.

I don't have the same eloquent words that you use, and just trying to imitate them would make me look very foolish. You're poetic, talented and I'm glad you're blogging these feelings. I know I escape to my blog. Its educated at times and other times...its pure fluff.

Thanks for stopping by and rest assured I'll be back here. Very well written and thats something I appreciate.

@ jd_janelle:

Romance and all the things that go with keeping it alive can be depressing. But it makes me appreciate my parent’s marriage. In the end it’s only worth it in hindsight. Until then, we’re kind of blindly walking into fire and hoping we don't get burned. All we can do is be careful with our minds, hearts and bodies. Sometimes they’re more delicate than we would like to admit.

Thanks for reading. New opinions and comments are always welcome in my dream-world. It’s a private side of me that’s not open to everyone, which is why it’s hidden in blog-world.

@ blondie:

Nothing like the sting of infidelity. Nothing like being betrayed. I’m still working on the “it’s better to have loved and lost” thing. I wonder about that. I’m sure my opinion will evolve over time. It’s strange how long word can hurt.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your compliments. I’ll be by your blog more often.

You know what I like about your poetry?

I'll tell you. It challenges me. Usually, I'm able to read through a poem in a matter of seconds and know what the poem is about and the main idea. I can't read your poetry just once. I have to re-read, and read between the lines. I love that, because its a challenge. You have a natural gift with words, and I bet that writing poems is effortless to you.

I absolutely love this piece. Very well written. =)
