This poem was loosely inspired by one I read by my dear friend, Rusty Daily ...

I am a lady,
but I am
so much more.
I am capable
of great insight
and quiet wisdom,
undying devotion
and love.
I am willing to give
more than receive
as long as it doesnít
become habit and you
take and take
and never offer
anything in return.
I am a lady.
I am more than
a receptacle,
or a body
to be viewed
and screwed
at your leisure
with no thought
to what goes on
above my neck.
Iíll not be
a window dressing,
nor your bobble-head doll
who nods in agreement
with everything
you say and do.
I am a lady.
Iíve heard it said
that to kiss a man
when he wants
to be kissed
is like scratching a place
that doesnít itch,
but I will guarantee
that Iíll always
have an itch
and not just for kisses,
but only if I am loved
and the love is shared
with respect, kindness,
honesty and faithfulness.
Rest assured,
it will all be returned
to you ten-fold,
because you see,
once the bedroom door
closes and the passion
rages in my blood,
I donít have to be
a lady any more ...

CJ, this is something that I am glad I ran across. It speaks of my best friend's plight in life. Thanks much and she will gather great insight from these words.

Naughty, naughty!

First, I often wear glasses. And now my secret is out. I use "four eyes," 'cause sometimes I'm lookin' above the neck, and sometimes I lookin' for more from my little wh--e. When it comes to wenching, I want it all.

Ruff! Ruff!
That'll be the dog in me chasing tail.

You are so wicked!

She takes the rough edged poetry of one and turns it into honey and a 'full body' message. Insight and wisdom are far more sexy than bobble-headedness. And of course, respect should never end at the bedroom door. Written as only a strong woman can write.
