Am I wrong?

Blog Posted:8/10/2014 3:40:00 AM

I was going to write a poem on this topic and probably still will a little later today. I felt as though a blog would release more! 

I remember the first time I saw her walking from her car four years ago, she was out of my league! Bourbon skin tone, short with long braids that touched the small of her back. I remember the overwhelming desire to say hello, I had to say hello! We worked next door to each other so on my break I made it happen, overcame my fear! For months I would shop at her store although it wasn't my usual, just to walk through her line and engage! It seemed to work and I found myself alone with her within a couple months! At the time she had a man, instatutionalized and about to come home. We talked for hours, exchanged numbers and that was that! Years later she came back into my life, same situation, alone, man locked up. A missed opportunity presented for a second time, I could not pass this up!!!

I guess the question I am asking is;

Am I wrong to steal another mans woman when he does so little and she clearly wants me?

    Jared, Having read your poetry and seeing your history with women through your poems...I'm surprised that you would ask if it's wrong to steal another mans're going to do it anyway...good luck and hugs...Noelle

    I got a kick out of this comment, Noelle!! But, I cannot say that your analysis of me isn't spot on because you are right, I will do it anyway!!!:JP)

    NO! Some hearts are smaller some are larger, but when there' s a perfect match you have to place them together so that they my live on on on and on. Together as long as it is honest on both hearts. Are you stealing her or feeling where each other is going.?

    I can't steal something that is being freely given. This is someone with whom I've known for years and we've built a strong base already as friends. Time will tell if that translates well into lovers. Thank you for stopping by my friend!!:JP)

    I'd say the question is do you want a woman who has such low self esteem she keeps hooking up? with convicts? [talk about baggage?] You can do better.

    Thanks for clarifying - re: another man's woman - I didn't think you did until I read this blog ... so I'm glad I mentioned it, you have always acted honorably to women, many people do still act as if they own their partners [not just men]
    Pickett Avatar Jared Pickett Date: 8/11/2014 4:59:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    It's the same guy both times!! I did not intend this to mean "his property". I agree with you, women are not a mans property. Thank you for commenting on my blog Debbie, you always have good insight!!:JP)

    also the phrase 'another man's woman' women are not property we haven't been since the around 1900 in the USA

    Whatever route you go down Jared I wish you luck but do be careful he's obviously in prison for a reason and your friendship with this lady could lead to trouble for both of you; Hugs Jan xxx

    Pickett Avatar Jared Pickett Date: 8/10/2014 6:04:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I have taken that very thought into consideration. However, I have chosen my route already! There is something about her that has me wanting regardless the risk! Thank you for reading my blog and giving such good advice Jan!:JP)
  1. Date: 8/10/2014 12:55:00 PM
    It is not stealing if she desires it. Maybe a quandary if she is legally married to the guy. Have a serious talk with her and settle the matter is my advice. If you know she deserves better, then get off your duff and offer it! Friendly advice, no foul intended.. Go for it!

    Remember this advice my friend. hesitation has cost many a man the treasure that he sought. Could be that it is up to you to just say the words and all hope comes to fruition.. Only you can decide on the timing of such a move. I wish you great luck!
    Pickett Avatar Jared Pickett Date: 8/10/2014 1:36:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Indeed!! No harm taken my friend. No marriage, with children and a long standing decade long relationship. I will never knock another man vocally but I do the little things that she is not accustom to. She likes the affection I show her. She tells me this, plus I can tell by her body language when we embrace! Time will tell if this is meant to be, all I can do is take the time given and make the most of it!! Thank you for your advice my friend.. :JP)
  1. Date: 8/10/2014 12:46:00 PM
    - She must make a choice !!! - The one ....or the other :) - Love .... love not - Some crushes ends happily, others end with marriage. -Good luck, Jared ! - // Anne-Lise :)

    This is hardly a crush now! Things have gotten heated and feelings are beginning to emerge from both parties. I see what you mean about making a choice but sometimes it is not that simplistic. All I can do is do me and show her what I can offer. So far so good, only time will tell!! Thank you for giving me your feedback my friend. I'll see you on the flip side!!:JP)
  1. Date: 8/10/2014 11:57:00 AM
    She needs to end her relationship with the other guy. If it was abusive, that is difficult and you have every right to be there for her. I hope she will get her act together so that you can have a fresh and honest relationship with her. BTW. Is this the same man locked up both times when she came along in your life?? If it is the same man, I would say that she really needs to get rid of that guy.

    Yes, same man both times!! Andrea, I was waiting for your response..;-) You always know what to say!! She is by far the best I have come to know with her captivating figure, independence and strong will to succeed. She touches me on a much deeper level than sex and as a single man that speaks volumes. Thank you for stopping by my friend. It is always nice to hear from you!!:JP)
  1. Date: 8/10/2014 9:16:00 AM
    You just present yourself to her, it is ultimately her choice, you can not steal something that is freely given. If she doesn't want to leave her situation you can not change that, but if she does, then you can be there for her.

    That's just it, I am there for her now. I made my introduction years ago, placed my stamp. Even if this is temporary like an adjunct professor, it's hard to turn to down. Thank you for taking the time to read and your warm comment..:jp)

    Though my morals are shaky and tend to vacillate, I don't think you are wrong at all. Get it while the gettin's good! By the way, I LOVED your description of "bourbon skin tone"- excellent detail! I wish you well in your romantic endeavors :)

    She is a work of art, let me tell you!! The lord put in some work when he created her! I have poetry in dedication, Brown Sugar & Anonymous Letter! You may like what you see!! Thank you for taking the time out to read my blog!!:JP)
  1. Date: 8/10/2014 7:57:00 AM
    If he gives her so little,why doesn't She end the relationship with him and start over with you?That would be thle best solution right?..But lets say She is manipulated in staying in her present relationship..Did you ever think about the trouble you can get into?On the otherhand love is blind,and can understand your emotions completely.Is She worth all the risks?I dont know this lady so I guess you have to answer that.Becareful Jared.Re wrong..I can never tell you ,you are wrong,cause who is completely right ?

    I can't really indulge into the intricacies of this situation, I apologies for being so vague. Stay tuned my friend for the poem following this blog, same title. It may answer some of your questions. I also, my two latest poems are about her! If I am wrong in this Charma, then I don't want to be right. Being wrong feels to nice!! Thank you for reading my blog and expressing your thoughts..:JP)
