Although much of my recent poetry has been about feeling grateful in nature, I have felt the need to connect with less mindful themes from time to time! In my coaching work I love helping women to reconnect to their wild, free and expressive selves and this poem cane about whilst pondering on the untamed female self whilst roaming the hills!
Just because you packaged away
that rebellious red-head
and her tarty little leather skirt, don’t think she left you!
She is still there wriggling beneath your sensible sweater, pulling at the hem of your just-right jeans
like a bitch on heat
She has longings you know.
She wants to dangle from your ears like a frenzied chandelier
and ruffle up your ridiculous little bob until
it can no longer be recognised
She wants to pierce into your belly button and swagger your hips
and swing from your nipples
for the whole fucking world to see!
You can try all you might to cage that crafty minx
but she’ll scratch her nails down
your over-responsible back
if you don’t respond to her
Dance with her
she’ll show you the way
