Rejection And My Inner Paradise

Poem By CeCe Lamberts

I finally saw him at a party last night
It's been 3 months since he's out of my life
So short, so petit, so old for my taste
yet so heartlessly he had me erased.

He's about eight inches shorter than me
And the shoes I had on had 3-inch heels
We are an odd couple, you have to agree
None of his features match my ideals

He's about twenty years older than me
My god, in my eyes he looked like a giant
I think he is only five foot three
Why did I have to be so compliant?

His Welsh accent was absolutely sexy
His humor and wit were sharp as a razor
I loved his tatoos, his earings and his dog Lexie,
his look that intense and bright as a laser.

I saw him again and I felt it inside
His rejection had hurt me, I had cried and died,
How needy and stupid I'd been I realized
I had him in my head totally idealized

My eyes were searching for him in the room
I wanted to look at him long, to stare
To ask him why he put me in such gloom
How could he do that, how did he dare

I looked in the mirror instead; I looked good!
All men in the party had circled around
Trying to talk to me, to flirt all they could
My shortie was now not making a sound

I decided to stay with the guys and chat
I laughed, I giggled, I was a naughty brat
I drank, I smoked, I danced, I had fun
I was a hun, not a nun, and I liked to pun.

I left the party with a smile on my face
Could it be I was finally setting the pace
for a life so free of this painful rejection?
Maybe I didn't have to ask for affection
My inner paradise was my ultimate protection.

Chance Or Choice?

Life is about chance
Life is about choice
What if I’m your chance
But you’re not my choice?

I Wanna Cry

I wanna cry for everything I've missed
I wanna cry for my youth that's gone by
I wanna cry 'cause today I realize that I've lost my soul
I wanna cry for the endless violation of my personna

People In My Life

Walking down the path of life,
A path often hard, uphill and difficult
I meet people who walk by my side
Some of them choose to touch me

Do You Believe In God?

I'm down on my knees thanking You
My palms and my eyes facing the sky
You proved to me once again
You were right here with me

I Met My Fate

Some time ago I met my fate
I met my fate in two brown eyes
Saw him and knew he was my mate
so funny, cool, but yet so wise.

Marriages Are Made In Heaven

so say people in India

it can be your ultimate good karma.
