Mystique of Woman

The mystique of woman–
Oh, where has it gone?
Lost in a world of
“Bare all” and “Tell all.”
Yet, in puzzlement behold
Woman, prime in her time,
Wholly discovered, cultivated, harvested.
All revealed; all sold, bartered, and traded.
Oh, the loss of mystique!

The loss of womanly appeal its own story tells:
Man constantly wanting;
Woman forever seeking–
A world of classifieds.
Pursuing the unknown yet familiar,
Surrendered in narcissistic wonder,
Their own reflections revered.
Defiant in their deviance
Against naturality.

Mystique of Woman:
Forever lost? Can we reclaim?
