 The Other Woman

 She knows well enough

to respect me.

She knows better than

to ignore me.

I like her in her own right.

I tell myself we should be friends,

not just because it will be easier

but also because it’s

so rare to find

anyone who

gets me

and gets him too.

I could use more friends like her.

And I gather, so could she.

***

 Men are not just scraps of meat,

over which we

think we must fight,

only to hurt ourselves

in the process.

We do not need to fight

over this man.

We are not bitches,

but we can share

the bone

like sisters.

With a common agenda

there is much

we can do

together to further

our own needs.

So much energy

wasted either in subterfuge,

detection,

or intervention.

Better to get it out

and get on with it

than to

cower

in the shadow

of denial

or self-deception.

She knows

I saw him first,

and I know

she won’t be the last

to notice him.

She also knows

that when I

follow my nature,

there will be times I will be glad

she will be there for him,

allowing me to take my leave

when and as I choose

when the glove is on the other hand.

***

She is the perfect

Other Woman.

She knows

what it is like

to walk in my shoes

and what hurts

as well as what feels good

if she will just let it.

I understand her completely

because

I have been her

for him

when someone else was me,

and I wanted to be honest

and remain her friend,

but such was not to be.

***

And now,

as I prepare to take my leave

to explore,

to experience

something new

with someone new

I realize that once again

I am the Other Woman

just as much as she is me.

I want to have so much

in common with this

enlightened woman

who sees me as I am,

accepts me,

even encourages me

to help find pleasure

with this man

she loves so much,

I can’t help

loving

her

for the way

that

she loves him.

If women

of uncommon

consciousness

found their friends

from among

their lovers’

paramours

they would never find themselves

lonely

or friendless

again.

I am the Other Woman

just as much as she is me.

When your body says yes,

but your brain says no,

listen to your heart.

If your mouth says yes,

but your heart says no

listen to your heart.

If your heart says yes,

your body will follow.

Follow your heart.

It cannot rationalize.

It doesn’t reason,

and is heedless

of excuses.

Your heart will give you strength

when your body is weak.

Your heart does not need to fear.

Follow your heart.

If your heart says no,

trust your feelings.

The heart understands

what the mind

can never comprehend.

Trust your heart

to be your compass.

Your heart knows the way

even when your brain gets lost.

Be good to your heart.

Your Heart Loves You

even when it seems

like no one else does.

Your heart will teach you

how to love yourself

in order to be able

to love another

completely and unselfishly

and without reservation.

When you Love Yourself

the others will follow.

Trust your heart.

Listen to your heart.

Follow your heart.

Every time it breaks

it gets a little bigger,

and gets a little stronger,

and you become more fearless.

Open up your heart.

Your heart will set you free.

If your heart says Yes….

Follow your heart

Always.
