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!

This is a beautifully written poem that manages to capture, so it seems to me, a mix of emotions--sadness, frustration, tragedy, regret--and yet, there emerges also here a hopefulness and spirituality. It is a poem that makes one think. For me at least it makes me wonder if our society has become so obsessed with material things and with the physicality of sex that we completely miss what lies within our soul--our inner spirit that still craves for the divine.

Everything about this poem is beautiful to me!
I love your style because your thoughts and metaphors make so much sense to everything in me... The writer, musician, photographer, painter and the man. These are not just words this is a painting and the colors are so tangible, the structure and the patient aura that I noticed in this piece is what makes your thoughts so captivating. There is a trait that every skilled writer has and he or she possesses it like they do their complexion, its the ability to write a thought that behaves like a prism affording every reader the opportunity to look at your poetry from different angles and it mean something entirely different yet beautiful without it losing an ounce of its potency. You have that skill. The fact that you're virtuous enables your poetry to speak to everyone reading no matter who you're talking to, even though portions of this poem are catered to women a man can learn many things about himself. With this poem you showed that the best way to teach is not to simply give clever advice but our own experiences because it forms a stronger connection to the truth. The intelligence that is woven in every statement and the mature yet vulnerable swagger you exuded in this poem was awe inspiring. I said it once in a poem I wrote that "the most amazing thing to me are a woman's thoughts" and your material is the perfect example of why I feel that way. I admire your growth as a writer, every time I read your material its something entirely different but its the same and it's not so much as you changing but flourishing. I'm not discrediting my own gender but I know that there are certain things that God only placed within women and when we as men behave like God commanded us and allow Him to teach us how to treat "the best thing He's made" we become blessed with a virtuous woman like yourself.

Bravo for a beautifully written and honest write!

Girl Girl Girl......... What a way to continue to move forward. Maybe this should be the new "09" anthem. Too many women are being caught in the game of sight. What looks good may be the worst thing for you. Oh and definately seek GOD FIRST but dont forget to check back in with him even after you have gotten the one you wanted.

The weak find worth in themselves from the worth of others. The powerful and strong bleed self worth that others mimic and try to obtain.

Lyrical you are a treasure by far greater than any stone. You have the gift of word and the power of the pen. Do damage girl. lol

Live, Love and Learn

" I contemplated long and hard before spending

This is simply awesome Lyrical. I am so sorry that I didnt get to it any sooner, but I really should have! I mean, this one of the best pieces I have read, and I just adore shoes, lol! - And yes, even the metaphor you used for them as well! This was super creative and hell you compared it to what woman love the most, shoes. It simply could have not been any better, it kinda makes me wish that I thought of something so brilliant!
