 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.

The Gods And Goddesses Had A Plan

The Gods & Goddesses had a plan

When their Spirits crossed Paths by affiliation

Those above Pointed at Her as she entered into the glass door

and then Pointed at Him as he stood by the counter

It was at that Time

Their Eyes met and it was

Love At First Sight

The Gods & Goddesses had a plan

they brought this Man and Woman

Together.

*

The Gods & Goddesses had a plan

They shall bear Children Together

they shall live Their Lives

they will share many Ups & Downs

When They were Ready to Dissolve

*

The Gods & Goddesses had a Plan

To bring this Man, and this Woman

back Together as Equals and in

Love.

As Time is Infinite

So is Their Love

They Share

They Feel

They Express to One Another

The Gods & Goddesses Had it Planned All Along.
