You look away from my searching eyes                                              

Preferring to see it as a precursor to intimacy
Yet I hope that a meeting of soul will suffice
But you refuse to acknowledge the message I carry
I’m not so good, nor so wise
I merely refuse to lie

Is it so hard to gaze upon me
To hide behind this mask you think I can’t see
Sometimes, worse, much worse you stay
To gaze impudently at what you think
Is an offering of body

Until I have no choice, but to look away

Good one Lorraine and Looking away is a good choice (not a "no choice" situation)....more often, i think so :)

love,
dev

Lorraine said...

Thanks Dev, sometimes it's the only option ;)

Devika said...

yes....but i think looking away will be my first choice, especially in certain circumstances! ha :)

Lorraine said...

True Dev but in your case you are legally forced to look away, it says so in the marriage contract.

Devika said...

your first lines explain the reason....intimacy is a hard thing to take, i guess :)

Devika said...

No nothing like that, Lorriane....And I tell you, when you have the freedom, you don't want to use it!:)

dang...sad and cold today Li refuse to lie...good way to be...

Devika said...

Lorraine....I'm afraid our talks took this in the very same direction that you wanted to look away from -- Its essentially because I think while women focus on soul and inner beauty, men seldom seek that in women...thats my understanding too...and thats why i said, looking away would be my first choice

of course there could be exceptions; then perhaps its a matter of looking at the right place...

ever heard the term 'eye candy' well the young people here use it a lot; married and unmarried
can participate in the sport of admiration(unabashed) need i say;
in a wicked mood i guess :)

much love

Lorraine said...

Darling Dev, I understand more than you know ;)

Ha Brian,life can be weird at times, lol thanks

Oh Gillena sweet girl, if we're going to be wicked then let me reassure you that I LOVE SEX, but I can't do it with someone that doesn't intellectually turn me on! Life is a bitch..or I am too smart for my own good...and I mean no self-applause here..

Devika said...

i know that...but, just to ensure that I get the message you carry here :)

Lorraine, I loved the honesty.

"Yet I hope that a meeting of soul will suffice" - powerful line and you are so worthy of someone appreciating your beautiful soul.

Toute vérité n'est pas bonne à dire, mais le mensonge en lui-même est pire!
