I Am A Lady - Poem by C.J. Heck

First and foremost,
I am a lady,
but I am so much more.

I am capable of great insight
and quiet wisdom,
undying devotion and love.
I am willing to give
more than receive
as long as it doesn’t
become habit and you
take and take
and never offer
anything in return.

I am a lady.
I am more than a receptacle,
a body to be viewed
and screwed at your leisure
with no thought
to what goes on
above my neck.

I’ll not be
your window dressing,
nor the bobble-headed doll
who nods in agreement with
everything you say and do.
I am a lady.

I’ve heard it said
that to kiss a man
when he wants
to be kissed
is like scratching a place
that doesn’t itch,
but I can guarantee you
that I’ll always have
an itch

… and not just for kisses,
but only if I am loved
and the love is shared
with respect, kindness,
honesty and faithfulness.
Rest assured,
it will all be returned
to you ten-fold,

because you see,
once the bedroom door
closes and the passion
rages in my blood,
I don’t have to be
a lady any more.
