She Hears Him Coming to Dating A Gold Digger 
One girl is waiting for him 
One girl has him right where she wants him 


She Hears Him Coming (Shakespearean sonnet) 

She hears his coming there among the trees
Her heart prepares to greet another day
Where kisses are the whispers of the breeze
And rainbows are the tears of yesterday
-
She hears his voice again call out her name
A song which sets her spinning in a whirl
While torrents make her passions hard to tame
And there another truth begins to twirl
-
She hears the sound like lightning hit the ground
Confusing voices rush to fill the air
A world of shadows flowing all around
She could not see the body lying there
-
Again she hears him coming from the trees
He is the hope her dreams try to appease 


A tree keeps a maiden's dream alive in this Shakespearean sonnet. Here we weave a haunting sonnet, It uses an echo effect by starting each quatrain with "She hears". After the tragedy is revealed "she hears" is less dominant. This sonnet returns to the beginning, rhyme in the rhyming couplet, to give the effect of an unending round. 

There was a girl, Gabriel, who fell in love with a guy. The problem was, this guy was married. Here is were the story gets fascinating. Gabriel honestly tried to get this guy out of her mind, or at least try to dampen her feelings. She couldn't. Everything reminded her of him. She couldn't think of anything but him. She loved him very much. So much that she couldn't ruin his marriage. His happiness became the outlet of love. She managed to become the caretaker of his children. More than this, she did little things around the house to free up some extra time for his wife to spend time with him. She became Auntie Gabriel to the kids. She never got a boyfriend aside the guy. To her, that would be cheating, In time, the wife noticed how Gabriel was looking at her husband. Gabriel told her the whole depth of her love. I will end the story here. What would you do? 

People like Gabriel actually exist. She actually exists. She was just one person to cross my my path who was outside the norm. Outside the norm? What is the norm? Are we within the norm? Ever notice that there are many flavors of ice cream? That is: if we even like ice cream. Yes, people are different. But what is normal? That we are all right handed? Or even that we are all either male or female? (Sexuality issues) Even our languages. Note the "s" in languages. Then there are dialects and accents of the same language. One shouldn't talk with their mouth full of food, unless it is culturally acceptable. "Thou shall not kill" ...except. What is normal today may not have been normal yesterday. What is normal in one household may not be normal in another; just down the street; a friend. Yet we all stand in lines. We generally get along. There is a sense of "common sense". What is the norm? We are wonders. So Enjoy.


Here is some music for a maiden waiting: Maryse Briffa "Winds Of Hope" 

Now for the other side of the coin 


Amy Irving is an actress who married Steven Spielberg in 1985.  The couple was notoriously on and off and before they were married, Willie Nelson apparently broke the two up for a while. That little romance cost Irving the part in the Indiana Jones film Steven Spielberg was shooting at the time. They eventually rekindled and wed. The two were married only 4 years before getting a divorce. She received a settlement of close to $100 million. Gold digger?

  2. Common sense isn't so common these days, but people still do fake getting along in lines it seems. Very true, nothing norm works for all. Outside the norm is more fun, but then that turns into norm for those outside the norm yet not for those inside the norm.

  3. Pre-nuptials can be a savior. It is signed with eyes wide open. There is no reason for the man to feel cheated

    1. Gabriel created her own set of rules, it seems.

  4. Poor Gabriel. It seems to have worked for her, but not many of us are so unselfish in our love. I can't help feeling that she closed off options which may have given her a richer life. Her decision though.

  6. Hmm. I am not so sold on her choice. Yes, it's her choice, but I think she must have had little value in herself - Yes, she seems heroic, but I find her to not have realized who she was and what she had to offer - Sometimes sadness needs to be dealt with and then ... move on to a purpose that will help others - not wallow in grief. Self-sacrifice is only good if it is FOR good... Just my thoughts. I found the whole post intriguing though.

  7. She loved him selflessly and such love exist very very rare.

    I think it was painful for her somehow to stay so close to her love and same time very far.
    World beard such souls who lived each other without being sexualy involve though but I see everyone has different definition of "normal"

  8. A powerful poem by D.Tutu.
    The poem is well written, with each line depicting a longing, and wanting, and need for something love which may sometimes be elusive.
    The story of Gabriel does exist, but alas that is the path that she chose for herself, and what if she finally gets this man for herself?. If someone else comes along she may just find herself in the backseat.
