Define Woman

Define woman

She is the epitome

and end

of beauty

She is the woman within women

Enigmatic

never to be fully known

never to fully know herself

all blessing

all curse

ever-changing

a never-ending quest

an unreachable goal

predestined without destination

Fantasy infused reality

invisible inspiration

a naked muse clothed in mystery

Ethereal evaporation

Parched paragons

paramours

eternally thirst

for Maiden’s tears

and Mother’s milk

and Virgin’s blood

Perfumed promise

signals mixed

communication quandary

altered states

salty sweat

saliva swapped

sweet release

 

Light—dark

Day—night

Yes—no

Now—later

Present—past

Right—wrong

Weak—strong

Happy—sad

Black—white—red—yellow—brown

Going to town

Uptown—downtown

Sex—gender—sex

is great, good, fair, vile, filth

“Don’t worry… be happy!”

Makes dates

breaks dates

procreates

P—A—U—S—E

Meditates

Medicates

Instigates

Liberates

A choice

A chosen

Nature

Natural

Au natural

 

Woman is elemental

possesses every element

She nurses

fasts

thirsts

and feeds

Nourished

nourishing

nourishment

Woman feeds life

humanity

the heart, the mind, the soul

Woman feeds man

woman and child

She feeds

the growth of all things

the death of all things

all pleasure

all pain

She feeds you

She feeds me

She is the bond between present and past

the hope you hope will always last

the wealth you spend that’s never taxed

the pardon from crime… the justice axe

She is all of this

and none of this

everything

and nothing

the living

and dead

purity

and ash

Woman… is the indefinable definition of all

      Yes, complicated, but in the most wonderful and inspiring way, my friend.

        I agree, my friend. But I’ve been one all my life, and don’t need to figure them out. Women hold my interest far more, Pretty Lady.

        I agree. It will always hold my interest, that’s for darn sure, my friend.
