The Strongest and Freshest

Folder: 
History

 

 

With Yeatsian lyric grace, 

coupled with humor, 

her social criticism was quietly quick, 

peppered in dry intelligence.

 

She was the World's Wife 

recent with practical love 

her poems were her mixed rapture, 

but she made her name much more

then any political work, for

she was a different kind of love poem then

 

She served them all in her ways,

the Paul Muldoon's, The Seamus Heaney's, 

The Michael Longley's and all the others in her time

Her language was of the Soddy Daisy,

The Boston Commoner. A New York Row House

 

Her physical life- a star, reaching only practical imagination.

Women Over 40 As The Main Target of Dating Scammers

 

 

What should a woman do in order not to fall for the online dating scammers?

The online dating scene is rapidly growing, becoming the main way in which people get to know each other and start dating. Numerous popular applications for smartphones became popular, such as Tinder. Unfortunately, there you can not only find a partner, but also lots of money.

Let’s say that you want to get started on a dating service, where should you start?

Sign up on a free service or buy a subscription. This and lots of other paraments are completely up to you, you should choose a service that you find to be the best in your own mind, find people to interact with. Hope for the best.

There are tons of potential roadblocks that will be waiting on every dating site out there, the biggest of which are dating scammers. While there may be some issues with a service that you’ve picked, it’s too expensive or lacks lots of needed features, a service can be changed, but it will hard to return that money that have been stolen away from you. Be sure to visit this jump4love scam dedicated site to find out more about dating scams.

Remember that people can lie to you

This is not always the case but no one guarantees to you the validity of all of the claims that you see. Let’s say a guy states that he is tall, stand at 6’2 ft. but in reality is just short of 5’6 ft. or that he is very fit, practically jacked, but he is quite fat in reality. It’s quite common for people to upload the photos that aren’t that new (in which they are 40 kg slimmer).

To lie on a dating site and to have serious intentions at the same time is very dumb.

It is in the essence of how any dating site works that we would like to embellish the things we see, we make quick conclusions about people and are trying to find the one, that perfect person, which doesn’t exist in reality.

Don’t expect anything to not get disappointed

This is a very important thing to remember, as lots of people leave dating services feeling strong disappointment as they haven’t found that one person, the prince of their lives that will build a palace in their name. Dating sites are not cheat codes for life, they are just another way to meet other people, nothing more.

Now for some scammers

This is a very unfortunate reality of dating services and life in general, there are people who are using dating sites for profit rather than to find a partner. In this case it is important to know all of the most common schemes that they use, as these schemes exploit your emotions, your inner most feelings. They make you feel attached to them, so that they gain your trust and then steal your money. Here’s an article about all sorts of different dating scams you should check out.

Don’t trust your emotions

It is quite fun to live in a fantasy, in which you wake up and see a message by the most beautiful man in the whole world that found you to be the love of his life and now he wants to get away with you and live together. Now this sounds great, but this is just a generic story for a cheap TV melodrama, nothing more, life is not like this and if it seems too good to be true – it is, and a person behind such a message knows it.

The most schemes are as follows: a man itself may be a foreign businessman, an admiral, an artist, a painter. They then either bombard their victim messages of love and all sorts of proclamations or they get to know their victim throughout several weeks of communication, during which they are trying to find out as much information about them as possible. Then they ask you about some monetary favor, it’s either that you have to send them some money to help them in a bad situation or that they want to book the tickets to fly to your country, but they don’t have the money for some reason.

It doesn’t really matter, block that person straight away, report them to moderators of a dating site.

Also, if you are married, a scammer may try to get intimate photos from you and then blackmail you

LUST DEMONS

Folder: 
Beautiful Imagery

I cannot help myself
against the slender slopes
hidden beneath her denim skin.
Inside me, there is a wolf, searching
to sheer this sheep's clothing
so that I may devour her.
Perhaps her She-Wolf would
exhale stifled howls, inviting me
to prowl freely and roam with Spirit.
Or perhaps I'm imaging such
liberty...
in truth, I pray secretly
for 'sheepish' prey.
No trust for this lust;
I've lost myself before
to beastly beckoning echoing from bedrooms,
bidding consent to cum hither
for back breaking acrobatics -- 
but silence is my only partner these days,
karma suiting my insatiable inclination
for constant Kama Sutra sessions.

 

Maybe it's best to hold
my breath...
and let this blood red Moon
pass.
This wolf will go
unfed,
waiting, quietly,
for a chance.

The Heart of a Girl

When I made you cry

From the words that I tied

Around you so taut

Had only I known the heart of a girl,

 

When I told her I loved her

When I said I could trust her

By the sweet smiling beauty

Had only I known the heart of a girl,

 

I know that she hates me

Or at least she should

I planted the seed of trust deep inside of her

Crushed the walls of uncertainty

I layed new sidwalk onto streets she once shunned

I built new bars and comedy clubs up and down her busy main street

As I held her my hands looked young

 

You,

The one who always calls me on my birthday

You were a different story

I let myself be yours

It was you who painted that portrait of psychotic

Taught me the songs to sing

When you feel shame in your love

Is your house still crippled

From the rocks I threw at it

Hoping one would spotaneously catch

To burn that loose lipped commune,

I want to thank you

Because I've been taught how to love selflessly

I know my love will be courageous for anyone 

Even those as reckless with it as you

You taught me true heartbreak

And for all the sweet girls that find me

I will know the heart of a girl

The Power of Women

None should deny, none can,


The power of women,


History abounds with glorious activities,


Associated directly with the ladies.


 

Mohini for instance in the Vishnu Purana,


Does valiantly defeat Bhasmasura,


The women are as smart as the men are,


Since the inception of time, working together.


 

Acknowledging the work of women is not womanly,


This is what the men should bear in mind eternally!

Organic Lady

Organic woman.

I am an organic woman

Not modified at all.

I ain't got no silly cones

In my breast or butt.

Nature's gifts suffice me 

In unique proportion.

I ain't no object for the evening gossip

Enhancing the scene as an ass-prop,

Hawking my boobs for ratings.

I am organic.

I am worth more

 

No nose jobs

No face lifts

I am queen on my own

Very own beauty queen

Very own beauty queen.

 

I am an organic female.

Full of confidence

Nature is my ally.

I love my skin tone.

I ain't got no tattoos

I am safe as morning milk

I am pure in heart.

The woman you dream of.

The woman you dream of.

HIS

 

HIS

 

 Opinionated, educated, sensitive

 

strong, a leader, fragile

 

“That girl’s got moxie!”

 

Betrayed by her sisters

 

Shunned by her brothers

 

“That woman’s a Bitch!”

 

Shame, Fear, Loneliness

 

Strength, Peace, Frailty

 

“That child is mine.”

WOMEN'S INTUITION.

We talked about the dance,
she said. Is that all? Yes,
well she did mention that
her man was late home

 

from work sometimes
and she misses him
before she has to leave
for the dance show,

 

but that's all. I see,
Fred said. Nellie looked
at him, brushed her hair.
Her dancing is faltering,

 

Nellie said. As if she
had other things on her
mind. What other things?
he asked. How do I know?

 

She didn't say. Unless she
thinks her man is cheating
on her? Do you think he is?
Fred said. He's the type who

 

would, Nellie said. What's
the type who would? I don't
know, but you can tell, there's
something about him gives

 

me the creeps. Women's
intuition? he said. You could
say that, she said. How comes
she doesn't have that intuition,

 

too? Fred said. She's in love with
him, love blinds, she said.
What are you dancing, tonight?
he asked. Swam Lake, she said.

 

She finished brushing her hair
and poured him a scotch and ice
and prepared to leave. He watched
her as she put on her coat, her

 

fingers buttoning up, her eyes
watching her hands in action,
her tongue poking over her
lower lip.  He lifted his glass

 

of scotch, studied her ankles,
and had a long slow sip.
