A Woman Waits For Me

Rating: 3.3

A WOMAN waits for me--she contains all, nothing is lacking,
Yet all were lacking, if sex were lacking, or if the moisture of the

All hopes, benefactions, bestowals,

the woman waits for the ultmiate love and union; the loving heart enjoyes all through innocense of feelings; but when it breaks it's union then if feels guilty; the poet master crafted the love of man and woman

They are not one jot less than I am, They are tann'd in the face by shining suns and blowing winds, Their flesh has the old divine suppleness and strength, They know how to swim, row, ride, wrestle, shoot, run, strike, retreat, advance, resist, defend themselves, They are ultimate in their own right- they are calm, clear, well- possess'd of themselves great write 10++++++++++

I think this poem breaks the PoemHunter rules for being sexually explicit, but there is no way to report it. He seems to describe himself as a polygamist.
