About Me - Poem by P. A. Donohue

sometimes I wonder about me, am perplexed and really feel
that I am one hated bitch destined to live life free
of everything necessary to bring out the woman in me

how can i do what i want to do or be who I want to be
when I am so dependent on finding love you see but
how to go about it is distressing me endlessly

first I am called sexy and may a honey be but
when I ‘lens’ my assets they tend to run from me
and everything is stripped away that can make me happy

how can I be who I want to be or see what I want to see
when I am kept from finding out why they flee from me but
how to know about it is distressing me endlessly

Twice I followed all the rules marriage and family
Worked to pay for mortgage, care, taxes exemplary
Of everything necessary to profit the husbands see.

How can I live as I want to live or live so happily
When neither would really show me the kind of love I need
with everything necessary to bring out the woman in me

Appear to be a whore and with words a slut I am
And baring all is bearing all the worst is shown on cam
What I think men want from me is really not at all
When I think they love me they don’t return my call.

    Excellent poem! Gutsy confession. An esoteric sensualism is abundant. First time I read of this style of yours. A subtle voice and a hypnotic low murmur whisper. A Circe? Mostly small words that account on a complicated synthesis of concepts. Bravo! Thank you! (Report) Reply
