DISGUISE

I wanted to be short,
landed somewhere in between;
longed for slim hips and blond hair,
blue-eyed Aphrodite piercing hearts
with her Colgate smile.

Trading politics for popularity,
no idea how to fit in,
delving into purgatorial perambulations;
sex, drugs and rock and roll.

What I got I needed,
painful reminders of mortality and folly;
limbo lover of life and the substantial,
discovered in middle age
when the veils floated free.

Gazing now into silvered glass,
a raven’s eyes smile back their knowing;
platinum crown cresting as artifice fades away,
and I am free.

    1. Renee, you give me the opportunity to revisit some of these pieces that float somewhere in memory. This one brought tears to my eyes, just now.
      And yes, I believe life Is like this if we have our eyes and minds open, anyway! It’s been a long, ardulous journey, but one I wouldn’t have missed for the world. Aloha, dear. ❤
