Amazing Women

 

When we are alone, we talk but with no words.

But we chat like business people,

In front of others who truly want to trade.

 

So in our business scenes,

You play a buyer, I a seller.

How’s life besides our business? I asked, still.

You know my age? I need to think about kids.

 

You’ve been chosen to be the Father.

Really! You responded, seemed thrilled.

Really!! I confirmed, wanting the gap to be filled.

You’re curious.

I’m serious.

Need more research for such a unique case –

One child, three parents, or possibly four.

Need more planning for such a creative project –

Who does this? Who does that?

 

What is that you are looking for?

An amazing woman, you answered,

Like a boy being asked for a Christmas gift.

What is your amazing woman like?

I asked, wanting again our gap to be closed.

Tall, successful, star looking, the best woman in the world.

You threw these words out like tossing salad.

Does she exist? I inquired.

If she does, can you keep her for good?

I would. I would.

You looked at the coffee you ordered but has turned cold.

You glanced at your girl but a fresh graduate from school.

 

An amazing woman, I’ve got one.

Tall, successful, star looking, the best woman in the world.

How long have you been together?

You won’t believe it, but it’s four.

Wao! I’m jealous.

Again, I’m serious.

 

So an amazing woman is what you want?

You know what, you listen well:

She’d be amazing if she were still there after you left for another trip.

                                      Another trip for the same business.

She’d be amazing if she still wrote you a festive message.

A message for real conversations.

She’d be amazing if she still asked about you and your family.

A family in need of real women.

She’d be amazing if she still picked up your call.

A call for another lonely world,

when you talk but with no words.

 

She’d be amazing if she still, she still, she still.

 

How amazing these women are!

I’d be pleased,

If you were as well,

Amazed.
