THOUGHTS OF A YOUNG WOMAN...by b. Malin

What am I looking for?

I don't know...

Oh, I want Good Health, Happiness, Money, my "Youth" eternally.

All good things for my Family, all our Dreams to come true.

Then you come along, with those deep "penetrating eyes" and your "carefree ways".

"Where am I going"? I ask myself.

No one answers...

Will I follow you?

No one answers.

Will I give up my home, my husband, my children, my security?

I can let you walk away...I can pretend that we've never met.

But then again wait, will I have missed something?

Something to "chuckle" about when I'm old and gray.

Wait for me, I want that Dream!

Will I run with you in the Wind...Make Love with you in the Rain?

Or will we tire of each other much too soon?

Will our "Talk and Lovemaking" quickly grow silent...and fly away like dead leaves in the wind.

And when I "wake up" will I understand the meaning of this dream?

Where am I going? I ask myself...

No one answers.

This is so lovely. Much of the dream you mention has been true for me as well--the question of whether to chase closely behind the winds of fate and be its friend even if that involves the chance of losing some things you love. Each person has to find their way into and out of the dream. As far as my own choices, it hasn't always been easy--but I would not go back to what was--the vacuum of feeling of it was killing me. I have the gypsy spirit archetype in me--it is hard to be still when one wants to be part of the huge caravan. I send you light as your discern your journey. Thank you for you words. Beautiful.

This poem was a "composite" of life for many women...I was trying to write for them...as well as the "gypsy" in all of us...Having been married, divorced... dated...and now happily married again...I've seen all the phases. Thank you dianeaugust, you sound like my sister...

This sounds like a woman I knew for a while. I am sure she asked herself these questions while she was seducing me. I was a willing particpant though we knew it was destined to just be an affair.

I think of her often, and hope she thinks of me and smiles.

When I was dating (after my divorce) I too had some sad encounters...but they make you grow, and then when the right person comes along...(if we're smart enough to know that) things fall into place...the past, just stays the past.

She probably does think of you every now and then...she too is older and wiser (maybe) now...Anyway, hope your in a good relationship now!

Heart Felt Book, Thank you so much for reading this piece and your comments. As women we wear so many "hats" in life...and sometimes we lose ourselves along the way.

The apple isn't mine

but the snake's relentless whisper, come to me and dine!

Nice write! Funny how anyplace but where we are strikes a longing in our souls. The serpent lies!

Thanks Sweetie...I like your analogy of my Poem. As women we sometimes give so much more than we get. I am going to check out your Hubs too.
