A woman needs

A woman needs

A woman needs him to listen to her
And not tolisten and talk to any one, just her
and looking just for her,
and not looking to anther,
and needs him to give her all,
not giving any to anther,

a woman needs a man strong,
and feeble for her,
and in mostly needs him dumb.

is that fair....? ? ? ! ! !

its a contrarieties
and that is a woman

    Hmmm...I can't really judge this poem because it is based on your perceptions of women and I must say your perceptions may be a bit misguided. Although I can appreciate this poem for the honesty expressed, what women really want and need is to love deeply and with all her heart and to just be loved the same way in return. I don't know if love is hard to find for a man but it is hard to find for a woman because they can give their heart so freely and when it becomes broken, many times they take it with them which can impede on another relationship. But in the end, all woman want and need is LOVE and thats it; -) (Report) Reply

    A woman needs much more other things that males completely ignore...They need a century to decode their mystery... (Report) Reply

    nice poem but it isn; t really the truth about women wat a women needs is somone to love her and accept her for the way she is and not trying to change her and all above this is having a man who is really FAITHFULL which is very hard these days

    It's obvious you've been hurt by a woman u care about. Women actually don't want to make men their pupets we want equals who can stimulate us intellectually you just haven't found the right one (Report) Reply

    Wow, I don't know whether to be insulted by your comments about womans needs...or laugh at your perception of our needs! ((Smile)) Anyway, I guess I will choose to laugh because I am not sure in the way that it was written!
    It is a good poem with controversial ideas and a great title!
    Keep sharing your thought.
    p.s Woman don't need much actually, at least speaking from my view...We need to Love and to be loved and appreciated.I believe that is what a man needs as well...and best advise I have is to...'after you get married try to Never come off of your honeymoon.' Also my advise is the more we lean toward loving and not judging as we did when we first got together the better everyone will be.
    Men and woman really are not that different if you think about it. (Report) Reply

    Perhaps the other people who have commented, using words like narrow minded and possesive are assuming these qualities based on the name of the author and its origin. Great poem Hazem! (Report) Reply

    Woman needs to trust her man and a woman needs to know she is really the only one for him. Woman needs to be treated the same as man wants to be treated himself....with respect! (Report) Reply

    Hazem, A woman needs just one thing...to be the only one in her loves life...... no more no less than that........ (Report) Reply

    Well, you seem to know women superficially :)
    On the other hand every woman likes to be in the centre of her man's attention, I think. (Report) Reply

    hi, it's alright, that's your perception of a woman, narrow minded and possessive. But, in reality a different woman has a different way as a man does. There are so many different types of people in this world, so, be easy and don't let woman and love conquer your whole life. Best regards. (Report) Reply

    A woman needs her man to love the simple things as does a man need a woman to love him for doing his best. It is the confidence within a woman that engages a man. (Report) Reply
