He was Man …

Its how I met him, it has everything to do with how I met him, how he looked at me and how he made me feel, power is how he made me feel, all in a moment. The power of that moment defined him to me for an eternity, he was man, the kind of man that knew he was man, understood he was man, no one could dethrone him from that. It was him, it was always going to be him. He had it all, the crazy , the fun , the madness, the imperfect and the great.You should have seen him take on the world and make it his own. With a will that could move mountains, he reeled his soul in and tamed it.His aggressiveness for life fueled mine, set me wild and free then attempted to tame me, and tame me he did. You are the epitome of greatness, the proper distinction between a man and a boy. He lacked perfection, and that was his strongest suit for his faults built him, made him the man he was.

How can aggressive and tender be in one man, vulnerability and pride in one man, his ability to love like no other and still be a fiery fighter all at a time amazed me, drew me in. One did not take from the other, but it co-existed in one man and that took nothing from him but added. Of course he drew me in, he refused to let me fall, fall in love with him. He asked me to step in instead, into his otherwise chaotic life, to learn him, then choose to fall trusting he would catch me. I learned to weather the storm he was, I became the storm he was. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. He added to my power, showed me I could exist without him but he also showed me I didn’t have to and I didn’t want to.

The epitome of greatness just as God intended, built to be king and nothing else. The sort of man you want to be queen for, the sort of man you can do nothing but submit to. He was the power where he stood, he claimed power where he shared it. Anothers’ power in no way put him down, a womans’ power drew him in. He was power, he was love, he was ego, he was pride, he was vulnerable, he was strong. All in all he was Man.

  1. Eish awe some of you people can write… Ati “He added to my power, showed me I could exist without him but he also showed me I didn’t have to and I didn’t want to.”
    Now if that is not poignant the International Women’s Day, I don’t know what writing is! #JustPerfect

    Lemme say it, it is so amazing to read a feminist’s blog and we not entirely the villain but we are layered and human and not merely the #Devil. Your writing is inspiring, never stop, even if its just for me you write!
