Leave Her Alone.

There will be times
When it won’t seem
Fair,
When the damage
Done by others
Will need repair,
When you will be
Asked to fill in
The gaps
From missiles launched
And historic attack –
So if you’re not
Committed to
More than your share –
If you’re set on
Punishing her
(Again)
For the sins
Of another –
Then leave her alone
She can’t have you
There.
If you give
Promises as
Empty as
Summer skies and
Winter winds,
And if you’re intention
Is based
On some future fantasy
Full of pretense,
Then do her a favor
And go wish on
A star –
But let it carry
You far
Far from her –
She needs solidly laid
Plans and sturdy
Built stones and
Foundations firm;
Anything else will
Bring her house
Flat to the ground.
There will be times
When her smile
Will fall
As freely
As her tears –
Her praises will
Turn to curses
And her skies will
Grow dark
And you’ll wonder
Where she’s gone
Off to
Without so
Much as a spark
Of the joy which first
Drew you into
Her enchanting ways –
And if you’re not
Invested in bringing
Her all the way
Through her darkness
Into brighter lit days –
Then take your selfish
Demands of her magick and
Positive vibes
And remember that no
One can carry
The entire weight
Of both worlds
At all times,
And look at the ways
She’s selflessly
Sacrificed her fire
And light,
See who’s placed
On her demands
No human can
Possibly
Fill,
And remind her that
She will
Always
Have a haven
Whether she’s
High or low –
If your love is based on
What she provides to you,
Then you will soon
Find
Her fierce storms
Change direction
And her fury
Will level you
Low to the earth.
She’s lived for
Years alone with
Herself and her thoughts,
Or in defense
From false champions
Who projected their
Failings and fears;
And she’s learned to
Be strong –
Mentally and physically too –
And she only wants
Peace and to finally
Breathe freely,
She wants the space
To exhale
Knowing today is secure,
And while tomorrow
Isn’t promised,
It’s presumed to be
A continuation of
Growth
With a solid partnership
On which she can rely.
If you’re not
Committed
One hundred percent
Then leave her –
Please leave her –
She’s better off
Shallowly breathing
Alone and tired
Then trusting in false
Promises and
Believing more
Lies.
She doesn’t
Want to change you
Or make you
Grow up,
She’s not
Into projects
Or force-filled
Boxes.
She doesn’t want to
Entice you
With curves
Or feminine flair,
She doesn’t want to
Beguile you
Or trick you
Or deceive you
Or make you feel
Wrong.
She just wants
Easy – peaceful – simple
But real.
She wants honest
Transparent
Reliable
And emotionally aware.
So if you’re not
Interested
In being read like
A book
Or if you’re
More intent
On revenge or
Domination
Or savagery
Or toughness
Or denial and blame –
Then please leave her
Please
Please
Please
Leave her
Alone.
