UNFAITHFUL

You came squirming in blood

But I did not let you die

I provided wisdom to cut your umbilical cords

To wash and wrap you in cloth

Your glaring nakedness to shield

Loving, caring hands of a mother

I provided them all

Strong and tall I made you grow like a healthy plant

A young woman you became

Breasts well formed into two tall twin towers

Hips well shaped like the finest arts of Michelangelo

Skin shining as one rubbed in the finest olive oil

In clothes of embroidered silk and linen I dressed you

Jewels and ornaments of gold and silver put I on you

Shoes of the finest leather and the choicest of meals

Your beauty became dazzling and captivating like that of a queen

Beauty met admiration and fame and then begat pride

Then in your adult glory and reign

You forgot the one who made you so lovely

You never for once remembered your childhood

How I treated you when you were young

But like they of easy virtue you took to revealing

The breathtaking beauty of the breasts I brilliantly molded

The very “behinds” I built in bravura

The thighs I tediously tended

The stomachs I skillfully shaped

And the coats I provided for your nakedness

You fashionably converted into little aprons

That every eye may see and toy with

The hidden and sacred treasures I placed

At specific “body geographical locations”

With specified bearings and vectors

Longitudes and latitudes

Coordinates and cardinal points

And passwords, serial numbers and codes exclusive to you

But as many as admired, to them you gave the right of free access

To break into thy security system and steal thy jewels

Even in the non-admirers you created unforeseen pressures

Enticing their unstable souls

How bad enough that you have become unfaithful to me

And the life purpose for which I created every part of you

WISHES

Your love awakens my soul

And plants a fire in my heart

And leaves me wishing for more

If only I were God

I will waste no time in making you a Goddess

If I were a trader

I will trade in all my goods in exchange for you

If I were a soothsayer

I will say many soothing words

Just to make your future one to forever spend with me

If I were the wind

I will blow away all obstacles

So you could be mine alone forever

If I were a miner

I will dig even to bottomless depths

Just to discover thy most precious jewels

If I was an artist

I would use the jewels in you

To make a perfect art of beauty

More perfect than the arts of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni

And If I were a preacher

I will preach mighty sermons

Only by your humble figure and love

Only Heaven knows how much I adore you

And the many things I keep wishing I were

Just to fully demonstrate my love for you

But I am just me

Wishing above all else

That you will accept me just as I am

Not for what I am not or wish I were
