    The poem written by a poet is the reflection of society, but YOUR POEM does not reflect that, instead your poem lowers a woman’s level/position. LEARN how to appreciate an ordinary woman. (Report) Reply

    LAST PART: ..............Regards from Sylvia Frances Chan, Dutch Poetess. I cannot call you a poet. Poem Hunter gives you the 221 level, that's not my problem. I am sick of the castes differences in your society. I THOUGHT you were a good Indian Poet, but my thoughts seem to be a greatest fake. (Report) Reply

    PART TWO: ..........................and that's why WHY in INDIA occurs the most insultations and rapings against women. This poem gives an example for such treatments toward women. And YOU are on the 221 level because of so many of such poems? IF YOU are not gay, you will never create/write such a poem like this. Many poets from your own country do not dare to write this comment, but I believe in God and people of both sexes ought to be treated as equal subjects. (Report) Reply

    For dogs
    A woman is a
    Lump of meat...............a man is of the same lump of meat too.........

    For a
    A woman is an
    Object of desire..............and SO IS MAN TOO an OBJECT of desire for women..............
    OR or for his same.........then these men are GAY, most gay men put women's position in society in a hilarious situation, full of mockery, and that's why WHY in INDIA occurs the most insultations and rapings against women.

    Yes, it is all in the eye, which is the same thing as saying:
    it is all in mind. The way a man embraces his wife, he hugs
    his daughter too, the difference being the feelings in mind.
    If you are interested, there is a Subhashita on the theme.
    A good read.

    put the very simple words to identify the feelings of the men. How do they treat a woman. (Report) Reply

    Short and succinct, looking at men's attitude towards women. It depends on each different man.
    Ideally 'A woman is a/ Mother with new light'.

    Ah yes, a woman is an avatar of the universe's creative power. We are uplifted as we aspire to be worthy of her. Yes, the light she brings is new. Only an arrogant would suppose she has nothing to teach him. (Report) Reply

    or a bitch
    gf

    Line 5 should read: A woman is an

    Just for the record, our dog loves my wife as a mother, a companion, yes, even a saint. Maybe a lion would be a better beast of prey.
