Thoughts of a Woman

A woman is not attributed an intrinsic identity because she is a caricature of a castrated man; castrated politically, socially and sexually. It denies and projects unacceptable feelings of envy  for the phallic qualities of a Gentile. Freud said so, but I think he’s strange. The Oedipus Complex, the Electra Complex….he has seen it all.

Eternal Mystery #352

I was jealous but didn’t want to say so I’ve not been anything but scorching hot Soared, with passions all aflame But when I saw Her, To tepid. Then to cool again. I was jealous Watching her lean towards him I felt a tiny, tingling “ping” Like a string stretched taut to my thighs Then […]

“…And I’ll Get Back To You…”

I don’t know why I thought he loved me Just, perhaps, the way I felt for him And certainly he never said as much, mtaintaining that He didn’t show his feelings, or affection Though he held me tight enough and Kissing me, you couldn’t tell. He could be tender: when I hid my face Against […]

I […]

I am mad about all things Gaiman. And this morning, after dropping E off at her art class (knowing I didn’t have […]

Goodbye, My Love

You were my love. My everything. So- I often ask myself: what happened to us? Young, carefree, in the bloom of health, with love to guide our way. Or so we thought. Last night, I thought of you. I lay beside our daughter, beautiful thing that she is, with your eyes, your chin, your mouth. […]

You…

Dominate my dreams. Make my toes tingle. Colour my cheeks. Cleanse my soul. Liberate my senses. Spill into my eyes. Make me weep. Believe that I am a faerie. Laugh with me. Trust my judgment.

In a fit of anger…

I am sick and tired of things around here. Why won’t you see how our marriage is falling apart? Do you know how unhappy I am each day? That you expect for me to work, care for our child exclusively, and keep our home clean and tidy? I don’t know for how long more I […]

First, because it deals with matters that require sensitivity on the reader’s part. Secondly, because I have already told this […]
