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
Mystique of Woman:
Forever lost? Can we reclaim?
The worth of a vessel should not be measured by that which it displays, but by what it contains.
