The Type of Woman

I wrote this for my best friends. You know who you are.

Chapter 1

......

if you grow up to be the type of woman
that men want to look at,
i pray you let them look.
however,
do not mistake eyes for hands
or windows
or mirrors.
let them look,
for they wish to see a woman
and it is possible that they have never seen one before.
if you grow up the type of woman
that men want to touch,
feel free to let them touch you.
they may have been reaching for something different,
for a door
or a window
a mirror
or another woman.
but those hands found you first,
and you must not let yourself believe that you are a guardian.
you are not a guardian
and you are not 'delicate,'
you are not a 'work of art,'
you are a woman.
skin and bones woven together
to create the wonderful person that you are now
and who you are yet to become.
you are not made of metaphors
and you are not a simile.
if you grow up the type of woman
that men want to hold
you can let them hold you,
and you can let them spend
three days holding you
and learning how to hold you just right,
you can let them do that,
because you are in control of yourself and you are a woman.
and if you grow up to be the type of woman
that men want to love;
well
i recommend that you let them love you.
because loving and being loved are very different things
and loving is like discovering mountain ranges after years of hillwalking,
loving is finding the sun when all you knew was stars,
loving is seeing the moon
where before there was only black.
but being loved;
being loved is finding galaxies behind his eyes,
and being loved is hearing laughter for the first time after years of hearing sobs
and being loved is like your first kiss
repeated over and over and over again for all eternity.
