Stilettos

A Poem by Lyrical Love

 

~~Stilettos ~~


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
I should have looked better,
deeper...and
with an enhanced vision...of you
getting my prize, that lays between my thighs
 
Letting you feel my energy,
and have my number...was the start of
my biggest blunder
 
Tasting your fruit,
and not recognizing the flavor...
was not a reason for me to think...to savor
 
Minute one, day two, and definitely not month
three was not enough knowledge, or truth
displayed for a Queen like me
 
I have looked at the best...of what I have that's tangible
like the fine crystal vase, my highest count threads...
but not before I opened my legs
 
I contemplated long and hard before spending
700.00 dollars for the shoes
known as Jimmy Choo's
 
I waited a year checking & trying for a better fit
...noting the quality, and waiting for a while
for that one pair with the right style
 
Asking many questions on-line,
trying to find, even one flaw...before covering
...my feet...
 
I spent more time & energy for shoes at places
...than I did for a man that would be right for my life
...not knowing he would bring me harm and strife
 
The next time I will recognize that exotic taste...of his fruit
when for sure... I am in search of a man
with my own plan
 
I will now see without those blinding rose colored glasses,
and not be amused by swagger, curls, and
muscles.
 
I will hide my prize up on a shelf...and not display
 God's given gifts,

and talent...

for a time.

 ~~  ~~
 
I will not let the ungodly feel my energy,
or come in my face, to invade my presence ...a real man of character
knows his place.
 
I'll check with the Master 1st,  for that man that thinks he knows...

the plan
...of him, being My~ godly man.

Okay enough said. I starting up a Lyrical Love fan club and I am the President. Wow you are amazing Lyrical. Now as a guy I can appreciate the way you acknowledge your mistake in picking the wrong guy and making sure the next guy understand that he better come correct because you will not be taken in again. This piece can be an anthem or use in a rap off if you facing this guy face to face. You thunder is with you and this poems says so. Great write but what else can one expect from you but that. Thanks for the creativity, honesty and my newly appointed position as your fan club President. Mercy!

I enjoyed the imagery in this poem.
And it's oh so true... I'm a shoe addict. Spend more time picking the right pair of shoes than the right person. Beautifully done!

Very creative! I had to stop for a minute and take in these lines...

"I spent more time & energy for shoes at places
...than I did for a man that would be right for my life
...not knowing he would bring me harm and strife"

Even though, you have more thought provoking lyrics and poems, this just made me stop and read it a few times to really take it in. I love you L, but you could never be famous! You're too smart! The world and it's subjects really couldn't grasp your intellect vastly enough for you to be famous! But we "thinkers" can praise you, and sit back and enjoy your genius!

I like how its so expressive, and unlike a rant but does include you getting your feelings and thoughts out. I hope that makes sense. the start is very drawing, plunging right in and you manage to keep that 'pull' to the end.

Yeah so I was turned on by the first words of the poem, then realized that impulse should be controlled. I'm dealing with a skilled wordist here. lol And just as your poem grew from impulse to wise evaluation I concur that your style is versatile, alluring, real, and captivating in the softest way. The poem's realization biorhythms itself is sexy as hell. You sell spirits better than words. And i'd pay top dollar for your words. So for the latter i'd grow fangs for. But I truly understand what the poem is about and you are right. Its better to do collaborations with a man that is signed to the same record label (God). You'd never have to pay for anything if the music sounds bad or doesnt sell.

Wonderful, wonderful poem!

Packed to the brim with reflection, humor, and bitter truth.

I love how you point out taking so much care in finding the perfect pair of Jimmy Choo's while slacking in the choice of partner.

I am happy to have come across your work here and cannot wait to read more!
