Our New Year is finally here - for most of us it is a welcome time of joy - for me the past year was full of stress, that is going to stop - so much going on in the world full of hate and dissatisfaction among each other -

has been around,
she knows what she
wants and expects in a man.

and desire, she will play
their costly game,
thus, winning all in the end.
She again throws her
head back and laughs,
securing herself in a shaky, unsecured
moment of truth,
revealed carelessly during a nervous
again the attention she craves.
Realizing eyes are
staring upon her body she is
exposed to the greedy
world of lust, a world of
novel making, words of

spoken in haste.

looking into my eyes
for comfort, sheltering her
mind from the cruel
words of disbelief uttered,

of compassion truth or fiction…
She reluctantly admits
her words are only make believe,
throwing her head back
and laughing again,
as she cleverly
captured us all with her story telling as only the novelist can do.
