A Poem by Cassie Fraga

and again... this day is just another day...


I will run a bubble bath

Soak for a while in Hibiscus beads

Let the scent of flower softly seep into my skin

I’ll breathe

Close my eyes exhale slowly

Tip my glass of White Zinfandel

Secretly cheers to what I was cheated out of

And hope for a little ease



I will lazily parade around my room

In the color for lovers

Red lace

I’ll flip on some music

Coco butter my body

Sit down in front of the mirror on my makeup stand

Paint my lips with pink strawberry gloss

Outline my eyes with smoky black

Against shades of brown sand



I will blow dry my hair and curl it with style

Pick out rings to dazzle my ears

A chain for my ankle

I’ll make way to my closet

Tamper with a few pieces

Then cover the color for lovers

With a strapless short formfitting deep blue dress



I will slip my feet into black high heeled shoes

Keep a light black over coat at hand

I’ll breathe

Close my eyes exhale slowly

Wipe away my real want

As it meekly falls down my cheek



I will hear a knock at my door

Feel my nerves and heart jump still

Invite him in

I’ll let him tell me how beautiful I look

Take the Rose

Smile in appreciation

And insist “you didn’t have to do that”



As I sit in conversation

Wined and dined 

With a man who reaches for my attention

I will feel the lingering presence

And dismiss it with a plea



I take another attempt


some peace

It`s just a story

you told the story beautifully. so sad. to waste all that beauty and preparation on something not really desired. but i suppose one does have to move forward. still, it's kinda like setting a fancy table with linen tablecloth and napkins, crystal goblets, fine china and sterling silver, then getting served mac and cheese and soda. i hope some day the meal fits the preparation.

A hundred half loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home - Rumi
This poem is a vibrant and joyous testimony to that...thank you.

A wish that most wish for! Very well written!

We always hope to find the one... we never know until we try... a hundred heartaches is worth it for one true love.

When a woman had desire. She can make herself sexy and so tempting. Leave a man with no chance. I like the flow and the description in the poem. Poor man would have no chance. Thank you for the excellent poem.

I AM THE GIRL... 1. I am the girl who people say is a "dreamer" or "over imaginative"... they are correct... I am this way because I like the view from the clouds, my world looks more .. more..
