Don't



don't fall into the old traps
keep your hopes focused on those couples
the ones who hold hands in their sleep,
in the park, or secretly under a table at
dinner

don't drown your tears in tequila
remember you are a goddess
worthy of appreciation
and that you know how to honor gods
with the same devotion and with great
submission

don't walk too far off of that edge
just peer over occasionally
to remind you
that once you leap you can never come
back; he will be there to hold you back
lovingly
