A Poem in Honor of Valentine's Day


I'm sorry to be the one to inform you
but a warrant has been issued for your arrest
and I'll have to take you into custody
until you can see the judge.

What are the charges, you ask
Battery on an unarmed woman
with your eyes you seduced me
with your touch you enslaved me
with your tongue you ignited my fire with the tip of your flame
your hot breath filled my lungs with much needed air
as our bodies mended into one
and your sweet nectar gushed freely
causing my woman-ness to releases its own juices
as your love stick handcuffed my soul

But you were a willing participant, you offer as your defense
Yes, willing to surrender to your every command
as I was under sexual duress, hypnotized by your love

By the way, I'm your judge and jury
Guilty as charged, you admit freely,
And you have not been forced or coerced in any way to confess, you agree.

Well, for the crimes lodged against you
I sentence you to the maximum sentence allowed by love
a lifetime of loving me wholly, completely, for eternity
and that's without the possibility of parole

Your sentence begins immediately
and the punishment will be harsher
if you fail to comply, but you won't
And I promise to be gentle for the duration of your sentence

But be forewarned, good behavior will get you two for one
That's two shots at achieving new heights of pleasure
For each and every attempt.

New Year To Be The Best Me I Can Be

Happy New Year. As I sit and ponder what I'd like to talk about, I've read many people write about their new year resolutions. I haven't made any new year resolutions. As a matter of fact, I haven't made resolutions in a number of years. Why? Because I've often fallen short to carry through on accomplishing many of them. For years, I resolved to lose weight as many of you have and for years, instead of losing weight, I'd end up gaining some. In 2008, I gave in and had gastric bypass surgery. It was a tough decision I had to make if I wanted to have a better quality and quantity of life.

Now, instead of making a resolution to lose weight, now I've opted to take one day at a time and to do the best I can with each day in order to be the best I can be for myself, my husband, my children and my grandchildren.

One thing I'd like to do is make a bucket list. There are so many things I'd like to do, to accomplish before my number is up. I'd love to be on somebody's best seller list with my writing, I'd love to visit New York for Christmas/New Year to watch the ball drop, I'd love to take a honeymoon with my husband. We're about to celebrate our 34th anniversary on July 18th and never took a honeymoon all those years ago. I'd love to take the Amtrak up the East Coast and make stops along the way. I'd love to visit Hawaii, I'd love to take a 10-14 day cruise on Royal Caribbean Cruise line. These are just some of the things that would be on my bucket list.

Have you made any new year resolutions or made a resolution not to make any particular resolution?
What have you decided to do to be the best that you can be? Do you have a bucket list? What's on Yours?
