- how far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
- how often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
- why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
- where did it begin? what went wrong? and who made you feel so worthless?
- if they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
- all this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
- and what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
- how are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
- where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
- where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?

On this day
There will be no talk of war
Love is alive today
So we will speak only of love
There will only be love
And in heart
And it won’t be that Hollywood type of love
Not T.V. love
Not dimestore novel love
And certainly, not mainstream music love
You know, love
Love that has been worked on
Like gardens and term papes
Love that has been nurtured, like children
And well, like children
Love that falls, crashes even, burns
But dusts off, fixes up…and rises
More brilliant than before
Yeah, Phoenix love
So, let us speak only of love
No herbal or over-the-counter love
Real healing love
Like God love
Like mother’s love
Like, best friend love
And change the world love
Bust just love
Enjoy this new garden
Work on it together
And it will be perennial
It will grow… year to year
It will be beautiful
It will win blue ribbons and everything
Folks will come from far and wide just to see it
And wish they had it
Had this kind of garden
