Greed Of Love And Woman's Worldly Day


Greed of Love
And Woman’s Worldly Day

Now this is what
I don’t like about
Love; it is so greedy,
You tell yourself
You will be
Satisfied with the little
Things life permits
Or throw to you
To you asif you were
A lost cat or dog.

But in fact you deceive
Yourself by saying
So for, the more you
Taste or dip the more
You want to dive in;
You all of a sudden
Want to smell,
Want to touch,
Want to clinch,
Kiss and you laugh
At yourself for
It is almost an
Impossible case
At least now and here.

You raise up your
Head up high, in vain,
To squeeze in your arms
Its phantom when all
Alone at night, while
You are sure who
Is on your pillow
Sitting is the spirit;
The aura not the real
Being.

But how can your heart
Hear, it objects to your
Rationality; it accuseses
You of spoiling oportunities
Of happiness for it,
You stand in the defensive side
It is not me; LOGIC says so,
A lot of preperation
Is needed as well
Confrontation and
Planning. The heart
Replies I don’t get
This: I want my lost
But found half
Now and here,
And you laugh
at your destiny
Thanks To God
For this ability
And you apologize
To your heart,
Trying to calm it;
To reduce the beats,
Asking it to leave
It to destiny;
Saying dear heart:
I wish it were in
My hand,
Oh yes I wish It were in
My hand
To make you
Smile as I do now
But as you see
If ever you can see,
I am just a woman
In a man’s world;
Men like to plan
Alone, they might
Give women hints
About what they
Are doing, but no
Clarity, for they
Are mysterious
Beings or may be
They lack trust for
Women’s mentality,
Yet they are able
To say they celebrate
Woman’s Worldly Day,
Hence, they risk
Loosing Women’s
Interest or even love
Or die in the process.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
