***************Mistress Answer****************1978


the lover is the backbone of his mistress
he is her hopes, her dreams, her fantasies.

he keeps her on a string, but to him she is everything.
through her he sees all his failures and mistakes
whereas he sits and contemplates.

she in turn looks to him for strength
and guideness in her hours of despair.
and knows when she needs him
he'll always be near.

she lives in her realm of fantasies
and depends upon him for his 'realities'
she is what she wants to be
living in hpocrisy.
