To Say You Own Her Is To Admit Defeat

You can never own another person,
† Yet almost every man treats his lover
† As his property,
† As his rib,
† As a gift for his own selfish needs.
You can never own anotherís love.
† It is for them to offer
† And for you to earn,
† For you to sacrifice,
† For you to invest time and attention.
You can never own anotherís body,
† It is a privilege for the worthy.
† A chase for those with a taste of adventure.
† A game for the cats
† That seductively chase their own tails.
Most men kill themselves over anotherís affection.
† I just sit here quietly twirling my drink,
† Watching the moon from a distance,
† Smirking at the stars,
† Writing down my thoughts.
