Back It Up

Just know that I want you back
Hurry before I slip through the cracks
I don’t know where I’m going
I can’t stand this plateauing
I don’t want to hear you
I just want to feel you
I don’t care what you say
Except you’re coming my way
Send chills down my spine
Skin on skin smoothly divine
Rumbling through my soul
Present with no goal
I so deserve this
Weightless bliss
All my boxes checked
Until we feel perfect

Did I say I want you back?
I meant I want you on your back.

Attraction is Whack

Interest does not equal commitment.
Repeat to yourself until you understand this.
And can act on it without falling.

~Just L (Goddess Wisdom, March 21, 2018)

Author’s Note: Attraction is a more dangerous drug than crack. Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.

Benefit of the Doubt

Are we really going to play this game, I stated?
What game is that? He inquired.
Where you lie and I lie down pretending not to notice, I said in a calm but direct tone.
I am not lying to you, He began…
What do you think, you have some women’s intuition? He continued confidently.
Behold, what is your secret weapon? He brandished.
When a man’s words don’t match his actions, always believe his actions.

Author’s Note: The truth is always in his actions. Words = Actions = A man who is worthy of a woman’s attention.

You Deserve a Love

You deserve a love…

You deserve a love that wants you messy
For all the reasons you are deep
And the demons that won’t let you sleep

You deserve a love that makes you feel safe
By your side stands an invincible human
And feels your hugs perfect for her skin

You deserve a love who finds heaven in your eyes
Wants to slow dance under the stars
Forever meets you wherever you are

You deserve a love to support you when you’re ridiculous
Listens carefully when you dare play
Or willingly does nothing with you all day

You deserve a love who respects your being free
Not afraid to stumble and fall
Knowing that for love you’d risk it all

You deserve a love to bring you into the light
One that wipes away your pain
Knowing she deserves the same

You deserve a love that never tires
Who gives you her full attention
Never bored with your silly expressions

You deserve a love that goes the distance
Loves you unconditionally
Serves a daily dose of intimacy
Fresh juice
Morning kisses
And poetry.

You deserve a love…

Author’s Note: You deserve all of this and more.

How Love Blossoms, Grows, and Remains

When we start
To realize
Our energy attracts
What we are
And we find
We have peace
Joy to share
For some reason

Love blossoms.

When we are willing
To wait
For understanding
Become fascinated
With our humanity
And graciously
Stay the course
For the same reasons

Love grows.

When we choose
To take
Individual paths together
Not bound
By another’s happiness
Yet happily
Traveling together
For a shared purpose

Love remains.

12 to 1

There is something magical about skin on skin
It doesn’t matter if you are young or old
Freckled or tan; a woman or a man
As different as heaven and earth
Each a beautiful creation
When mingled, unique and rare
What a lovely vision
Tangled legs and hair
Soul connection
(Once you are)
Skin on skin
You are
