Part ONE

You've come a long way

and now you reach out for

your goal in life 

even further

beyond your own expectations.

 

You made your dance and actual

body language your armor and 

hapiness-triggered weapon

to fight against life's constraints (!) 

and global collateral damages

— Humanity as a whole soaked in sweat & blood;

always late for fighting tolerated wars against itself. 

 

BUT ALL IS WELL! 

HERE COMES

CHARMINE!

 

She causes chaos & plays

with the rules, never

compromising with her

integrity,

constantly drawing her

strength from her

break-dancing troops of moves

— pounding feet & clapping hands

against her heart

beating & racing,

taking off in the air and

defying gravity!

 

She makes life turn into films...

 

[On the run,

gangsters

— knifes in hand,

trying to catch up with her pace —

she stops and turn her head back at them

with piercing eyes, 

forcing them (sad gangsters)

to freeze & turn around

back at her

radiant victorious aura!]

 

AND THERE SHE GOES...

Part 2

 

When I am told on your

looks, body and features

I say “her nose makes cleopatra

posing in full-frontal 

green with envy”...

 

Jaws drop.

Big boys' wild heads & necks

know the limits you established.

You make them sit & stay put

as you walk around.

If one moves, they all get punched.

 

Always geared up

with your self-confidence

in perpetual expansion;

your beauty revolves freely

around it.

 

And this particular image of you heals my creativity

— as far back as when I just can't write,

and then seeing your smile, your eyes & energy

inspire me once more.

 

This punctuated poem is meant to be an Ode

rather than a poor sad thank you for saving me

no matter what.

 

You're no queen, no

princess, no flower nor a color,

you're my muse & incarnate the essence of being a woman.
