The girl at the window,
braless and elegant in lace,
is a model of youth and such dreams that are chaste.
You would not think in viewing her see-through attire
that she is an untouchable of everyman's desire.
She is the virgin of dreams, their expectations aflame
yet stuck in the honey pot of life's crying game.
There one finds less compromise for weakness of flesh
and more righteous judgements of others professed.
Only with ripeness of age and recognition of soul
the acceptance’s begat, which youth does not know.
It is the seasoned ripeness allowing for wisdom and wit
to overlook the hunger’s insatiable pit.
