Left behind

 

Art by Pier Toffoletti

You can scrub it

you can scrape it

you can scour it.

You can purge it

with a dozen new lovers

dark games

wild nights

lost hours.

You can drive it out

with drugs

and alcohol

and sex

and men who tell you lies.

But you will never erase

the poem I left behind

in your soul

As woman

Art by Pier Toffoletti

If I was a grand architect of design.

If I was the master of texture, colour, shape, style and beauty.

If I could mould and fashion and forge personality, intelligence, sensitivity, sensuality, generosity and strength.

If I possessed the perfect, potent power of pure magic

If I was a wild-eyed cosmic genius with a boundless, endless, limitless imagination.

If my creativity dwarfed and humbled every artist, scientist, writer, sculptor and mathematician who had ever graced the planet.

Even if I had dominion over all things

I still could never create a creature

as unique

and as extraordinary

as woman.
