The Promiscuous Woman

The Promiscuous woman

Desire to transcend frail laws of this ductile world,

A world pulled into the straws of right and wrong,

Narrow, binding, prickly walls of the dry mindless straws,

Laws dictating, a scarecrow directing, words divulging from the cowardly tongues,

Rising jailed bars clear pathways for you tread on,

You stagger as your mind hazy, dazed, sees not the wall, neither the bars, nor the path,

The haze is the mist clearing,

As when all is mist, beyond is hidden, blinded you are,

The path of lone existence, lone freedom, your eyes long to take that journey,

To flow down that unbanked stream, flow with your naked soul, uncaring, shameless,

Unshackle yourself from the known, embrace the unknown,

Speak your thoughts, unbridled from your soul,

It is a lash unintended yet felt by those dumb minds,

The dark nights and the moon that shines upon you,

When the moon of your eyes quenches its thirst; you quench yours as you touch those lips,

Promiscuous you are my dear woman, wanton ways, and wanton thoughts, free from saddled minds,

Surrendering to your true nature, a tingling sensation ripples your being,

The pleasure is yours to give, yours to feel,

Embrace the sun and its heat,

The darkness and the light each livens you with its own reflection,

Burning and rising to blow with the wind, you can take any form,

Ice if you will, freeze those crude notions in time, render them motionless,

It ain’t going to drive into another’s mind,

A woman, a promiscuous woman, formless,

Not drained, nor withered, nor lost in the clear carved path to a fore written destiny,

No desire from the world, no need for assent,

But only a desire to live a life, alive, a will to power driving on the wheels of thy own mind

    Promiscuous or Free?

    Liked by 1 person

    • πŸ™‚ I like the question.. Promiscuous in the eyes of most, and free to herself, but at the same time she would call herself promiscuous as I sign of rebellion..:) Since
      a woman’s character is judged often based on everything she does, walk, think, talk, her choices..its a rebellion against that. Judging doesn’t necessarily effect her, but it stops many other women from being free..
      (everybody judges everybody, but since I am talking about woman.. )


  3. “…a will to power driving on the wheels of thy own mind”, strong words.
