Woman under glass

See the pretty piece of fine crystal
You can look but better not touch
It has it's place under glass
To let it be free would cost too much

If it were allowed to breathe free air
Would it not have a shinier glow
It could be polished and appreciated more
Only if it were allowed to grow

Should it not be displayed for all to see
We promise to handle it with such care
This crystal is stronger than you think
The weight of it's beauty it can bear

Please do not leave it under the glass
For it's true beauty shall begin to fade
Let it glow and reap the ways of this life
Or alone you will sleep in the bed you've made

See the pretty woman made of flesh and blood
She's an individual, not anyone's posession
Let her go, she will really love you for it
Be secure in yourself, don't make her your obsession

Author's Notes:
I know it's strange, but there are some cave men still out there who are afraid that someone will steal their women. I hate to burst your bubble guys but though they may be wives or girlfriends we don't have ownership over them!

Some men like to think of a wooman as their possession, my hubby being one of them. He has foreign blood running through his veins say no more! I need to wear horse blinkers when i go out with him.

Women cannot be stolen unless they want to be...same as men.
I detest deceipt. Never could live it.
As for cavemen? well i am not averse to knocking a man over the head and dragging him back to my lair...but only if he is free! ;-)

This reminds me of my poem "If my Comments threaten you", which you have read and commented on. Some men just need to grow up and start taking care of their business. Terrific write Henry, it makes a great point, Joe

I enjoyed reading this write alot. There is alot of truth in your words you have penned. No one wants to be the personal property of someone else. The relationship will never be a healthy or happy one. My way of thinking is life is short and if you live is miserably, you have missed your one opportunity.


Thank you for commenting on "Forever and a Day" and your warm welcome as well.

A direct hit, Henry...this gets some men where they live! I love this, and appreciate knowing that there are a few of you fellows out there that can allow a woman to be her own person.
Thank you for this!

I enjoyed your direct style. Obsession is always negative and, I agree, noone is anyone's possession. Would like it to read 'let her go' rather than 'let her grow' in your final stanza. She may appreciate it more that way. Thanks.
