Love Before Relations
Prose Poetry About the Consequences of Giving in In a Relationship(s)
The way I see it; you're a good girl who lost her virtues in translations like,
You packed your bags and left your values.
It’s as if you never knew your worth; giving up what’s precious and priceless to common folk’s
The same ones who found it before you in a common place, at a commercial value.
Motives unclear as relations came before love and for that reason the latter you never knew. Simply, you let the hubris control you. A victim of your own ignorance you put the cart before the horse and now you pushing the load. What is sex without value? What are you without yours?
Now, you're just a good girl gone bad.
I have seen this too many times; good girls fail to wait for good men of their age to light a match so they gave up to men who built them up for perpetual failure. Now, you’re stuck in an unhappy place.
Ladies, heed my fading counsel, how many men out there are going to say this? It’s a system of bottomless hope, a web that looks like silk, a maze that looks like a well-pruned garden, a beautiful and surreal screen in front of a dark dungeon, a distraction you can’t afford so see and avoid, just fly on by. Stay pretty and true.
I'm not trying to change a mold just trying to get good girls to stand in front the mirror look at their reflection looking back and be proud -
You put love before relations.
