i am not allowed to be alone
until i am believed within
to never go alone with a man
alone without mother’s permission
but i am extremely polite and say
what is a gentleman who prefers
a bold woman who adores a man who
knows his place/and his woman
who knows hers? I am written
explaining to him in letters
i am the soul who knows i
believe in him and me
and so my love; the well-bred
man does his duty taking her hand
and takes me to the refreshment-room
after each dance and then leaves me safe
at my chaperone’s side is what i know
even though 2015…i am anachronistic
and so crucify me and all my feelings
— i am the one who survived one
hundred-fifty years tonight

About EPRobles

Writer, Artist. I like to paint abstract acrylic images onto canvas. I love to read everything, and I especially enjoy science, philosophy, and the arts. I'm new to the blog experience and I very much enjoy it! I hope to learn as much about all the features that WordPress offers and thank you -- my visitor -- for taking time to read my words. Peace and love... View all posts by EPRobles
