Poetry Monday: Destiny

I have read
Many theories
About
Soulmates

They’re not always lovers

Sometimes
A friend or
Family member
Can be a
Soulmate

Articles
Say I’ll have
In my life
Four
Different
Soulmates

A healing soulmate

They bring life lessons
To help you
Move forward and 
Heal

A past-life soulmate

Things are easy and comfortable
With them
They teach you to
Trust yourself

A karmic soulmate

From past-life
Deep
Karmic
Painful
Connections
They help remove your
Ego

Twin Flames

Overcoming
Emotional and spiritual
Barriers
Together
Transcending the
Ego

Soulmates
Are often
Confused with
Life partners

I think I found my
Soulmates
Where is my
Life partner

Poetry Monday: Don't Call Me Macho

I know I strut
When I walk
Keep my head up
And make eye contact
I raise my voice 
And get louder
To get your attention
I hold my head high
And take command
Of the room
I know these are
All the things you see
But please don’t call me macho

You don’t see me
Open doors for women
And men
And the people still deciding
You don’t hear me say
Please and thank you
Or ask a friend for help
Or cry on someone’s shoulder
When my pet dies
You don’t see the panic attacks
The self-doubt, the depression
The terminal aloneness
Please don’t call me macho

Poetry Monday: The Magic Circle

The crystal to the North
In front of me
A glass of Moscato to the West
On my left side
A vanilla scented candle to the South
Behind me
A paring knife to the East
On my right side
My familiar, Milo
A Russian Blue
Sits disinterested
Supervising my ritual
He stares at me
Like cats do
Making me question
All my life choices
With the paring knife
I cut an imaginary door
To leave my circle
And refill my wine glass
