Dear MAN.. you are not the best

Date posted: February 14, 2009


Dear MAN 

I look at you 
and I see greatness 
for in your eyes I see the strength of a Pharaoh 
and the depth of a legend. 

I rest my face 
in the palm of your hand 
to lose my worries in the comfort of your embrace 
and to sink my burdens in your serenity. 

Listening to you talk 
feeds my dreams 
and dreaming of you 
warms my wandering soul. 

Look at my face and how it lit up 
when I laid eyes on you. 
Look at my eyes 
and watch me come back to life. 

I summoned you with the power of my thoughts 
like a hermit praying for absolution. 
I uttered silent prayers and recited my holly psalms 
to show you the way to my heart. 

I laid down my scepter 
I took off my crown 
I gave up my power 
for in sacred submission I have given myself to you. 

My dear Man, 

You might not have the most paying job, 
the fanciest car, 
the biggest house, 
or the most loaded bank account. 

You might not be the most intellectual, 
the brightest, 
the wittiest, 
or the most eloquent. 

You might not be the most handsome, 
the sexiest, 
the funniest, 
or the most committed. 

But, your love, hug, touch, voice, thoughts, and jokes are right 
Your aura just feels right. 
You feel right. 
I feel right around you. 

You might not be the one who loved me the most. 
I know that you might not be the best 
but I want you to know that 
you are the right one. 

Yours truly, 
Me
