Looking for her self-esteem behind every zipper in town

Looking for her self-esteem behind every zipper in town

A Poem by words of rooted design

2012 has blessed me with new vision.


He's awfully chivalrous for carrying such casual intent

as his blend of canny ways are filled with filthy desire.

 A finicky facade leaving room for discontent

 yet the helpless girl can't help but admire

meanwhile, to herself, she's being a liar. 

 Could she deny this mans selfish pursuance?

Her misinterpretations are inevitable

a genitive surefire. 

He'll maintain his obvious avoidance for exclusivity

she'll claim to have been perpetually blinded by his witty ways

 but she induced her own misfire. 

Those eyes of his will misconstrue

betting on the fact she'll negate her own savvy finesse

that self proclaimed ability to see through.  

Inevitably he'll be praised and built up as a statue

 like his soul

he'll be mended of stone,

in the interim

she'll be gazing pitifully 

into shades of blue.

Wow! I am loving this write. How I have missed you is beyond me. I somehow stumbled by here and then found this work of... sadly i have been one of these... .. ..this work of art.

Well said. Says so much in a rather "hold it far out in front and hold your nose" sort of way. Loved it. Truth lives here. Hopefully out blunders serve to make us wiser. Hope so. Otherwise I' just a dumb chick with a list of stupid mistakes in my past. Thanks for this.

Very raw and transparent with its meaning, at least from my perspective. I liked how you didn't hold back and the ending was superb!

here's to the blessing of a new year

it is time to love ourselves for what we are and what we might be, without taking some third person's opinion for it

i'm afraid i didn't express myself well, you and i are the first person, that zipper is the third
this is quite good...what we think will make us feel better, often won't...

we can be in such denial...but the truth is that our behaviour will put us farther into the blue.
