if I lured her to me with but words
she was never yours
she may have set her eyes upon you
but her souls gaze was turned to me.
women keep secrets so buried men never know
because they don’t know the woman inside of themselves
so how then will you know the woman outside yourself?
grow your masculine
it will only alienate you from her essence.
and there you are, in a wasteland desert
skirmishing, scurrying, searching for water
in the mirage of you.
