2 poems (Conciliation Prize and Needless)

Love trap

Conciliation Prize

In your eyes I lay fallow

An opportunity reserved

A conciliation prize

When all other flirtations

Have met an ungainly end

I could have been

The subject of a better man

But I chose to be the object

Of a Narcissist’s ploy instead

*

Needless

I am the servant

Of man’s presumptuous rib

Needless but for sex

This is fictional and I absolutely do not agree with the point of view expressed in the haiku. I do think sadly that some girls are unable to see their own worth and choose relationships and men that are destructive. The reverse is true too of course some men don’t see their value and get involved with destructive women
