one word's in my pocket dictionary.
let me teach you.

*
I meet too many beautiful people who have this word scratched out
While I have it circled-
Twice.
Monogamy's the first law of marriage;
βέƦẙḽ Dṏṽ the Smartass Rabbi

Monogamy's the first law of marriage;
adultery"s a close second.

I wonder
would it help, could I fix us if I just turned the lights down
and we drown in our former selves
have sex with each other
and ourselves -

the
relationship worked better when there was more
than just the two of us.

I am sorry that all my poems are about infidelity, ha ha
Monogamy is dead.

Do we truly inherently pursue companionship limited to one singular human?
Or has the idea simply been romanticized through generations,
allowing us to believe that from creation
we have a soul mate,
a sole mate.
I can't imagine it is my fate to be chained to one single human;
I seek growth extending much further than the arm span of a solitary being.
Nobody has all the answers,
nobody has everything.
Together, we are everything,
everyone is everything,
and everything is one.
Monogamy is dead.
The question that haunted me
ever so frequently has been resolved.
I have evolved,
No longer will I query,
who is the one?
I am the one.
We all are the one.
Everyone is
one.

When did it suddenly become normal,
To never commit to anything.
It's not just in certain towns or cities it's all over.
Marriages are ending faster.
While people are having kids,
Who's brothers and sisters don't share the same two parents.
And daddy isn't there or mommy's having an affair.
There's no love put into it,
No possible future for anyone
What happened to only being with,
One,
One person that makes you feel love.
They make you feel amazing,
For more than just a couple of weeks,months,or years,
But that's the issue isn't it?
We get bored,
It's not fun anymore,
We don't feel like they take our breath anymore.
Then we start to wonder what they did wrong,
Or even what you did wrong,
You look for someone to blame.
Truth is you weren't looking for something,
Permanent.
You wanted love for the moment,
But that's ok because your not the only one,
Look around you,
It's not normal to be settled and happy with just,
One.

as New Year arrives, darling,
                                                                ­                                    consider where your lips are.

You've got to love those old family favourite games of Christmas's past...

She want me take off her pants.
I say no my love give me your hands.
She pull away them soft skin rub mine.
She kiss my face she tries taking me aside.
Girl, please cover the body you have,
Her want me to be kissing
If it not for the respect i had,
Her lips i could be tasting.
She do them things that make it hard to look away.
She want me to take off her pants.
I let go her hand
walk away
She has man.

I know to many of you it may sound incomplete, or as if there are words that should be some places, but i love it the way it is... i hope you'll respect that. enjoy.
s a friendship type of love. My best is monogamy. My best is not you. Darling, sweethear

I've never lied to you before, so I promise you I won't start now. You and I, we're one of the same. Human beings, creatures that have feelings, people. I looked you in the eyes once saying, "you deserve the best". It's only taken me 17 years of my life, a year and a half of knowing you to realize I deserve the best too. See you and I, we have different best, our best is what we think we deserve. My best is someone holding my hand, leaving flowers at my doorstep, calling me asking me how my day was. My best is a friendship type of love. My best is monogamy. My best is not you. Darling, sweetheart, pumpkin, baby, boo your best is a white trash hoe. Your best is getting cheated on day after day, your best is the lies. Your best is a fourteen year old who can't keep her legs close. Your best is getting pressured to have sex then winding up behind bars. Everyday I am thankful you told me we would never work out. We could never work because I am a 17 year old virgin and proud. Because I love myself more than I love the thought of being in love. Because I would never throw you away just to prove that I can. I will never be a girl who settles for anything of than the best because you taught me not to.

My first poem on here titled Dear Snowman and this poem are written about the same person.

When we were young, teacher said
Sharing is caring
Don't hog your toys
But we grew up
And we found love
Obsessively drag your possesions
Down the aisle
Submit your need
For one-on-one
I promise not to break your heart
I'm not brought up that way
I put the boy through hell
But I lie back
And remember
The status quo
She cut her heart
Into many segments
With equal affection
She loved her friends
But watched him gorge
On each slice
Getting fatter and fatter
Childhood generosity
Old mantras not forgetten
But she retained
And took to heart
Sharing is caring
So for once, just let me
Share my love
She'd never hurt him
Though it hurts her more
To keep it locked away
Running a mug
Along the bars
Begging for food
An omnivore
She needs more
That what one alone can offer

Another weird one from the crevices of my mind.
