Never Trust A Woman! - Poem by Mary Nagy

Never trust a woman.
When will I learn this rule?
Each time I let my guard down
I'm left looking like a fool.

They look right at you smiling
pretend to be your friend
secretly recording every word
to repeat like there's no end!

They smell vulnerabilities.
They sense you will confide
your deepest, darkest secrets
and then you'll want to hide...

They sneer with twisted lips
and glowing eyes of hate.
You never saw it coming
this turn your ''friends'' call fate.

They run in packs like wolves.
They'll eat your weakened soul.
Don't turn your back on one of them
or you'll have to pay the toll.

They'll wait till you are comfortable
then hit you in the knees.
They use your heart against you
and do just what they please.

I won't say that it hurts.
I've been hurt too much before.
It takes more than betrayal
for me to cry and hit the floor.

I need to heed my warning
and remember when I say...
Never trust a woman
cause her claws don't go away!

    A fantastic poem, and sadly very true. I don't understand why we insist on being so horrible to each other. I hate being in a room full of girls and being scared to leave in case they start bitching! Us women need to stick together!

    Men do wrongs
    Women do wrongs
    People do wrongs
    This is the way that it is until such a point that we can break the barrier between us,
    A strong poem Mary and you have put so much into it, thankyou for sharing this and really making us think, Love Duncan

    Mary, I think you have taken a little poetic license here, in that most people do see us as 'cats with sheathed claws.' However, there are always exceptions to the rule, and you know who they are. As Tai Chi said, some of us make it our life's work to break the mold of meanness that this portrays.

    I think this is way over the top Mary, I am a woman and I am trust worthy, I make it my lifes work. This poem is very good in express betrayal, but both genders suffer this afliction, but not by any means all. Just a thought. Trustworthy Tai (Report) Reply

    Mary, I can only say that I know the feeling. I have been on that road for eleven years. What Micahel Sweetbird says about not trusting a man is equally true. I guess the betrayal impulse exists in our species regardless of gender. Only it is more apparent in women because those who are insecure are propelled by envy. May be it is your talents and good-heartedness that is instigating their howls and bloody claws. Their enmity, ironically speaking, shows your beauty. This is a moving piece that shows the solidarity of women in our age of feminism! Have a stab-free relationship. With Love and Respect, Susie. (Report) Reply

    The very hardest lessons you always say beautifully... and with that kick-ass sense of humour at the end. Thanks for a piece, as ever, simply brilliant and mind-consuming. (Report) Reply

    Mary, no need to apologise. If you're gonna get something off your chest, then spit it out, loud and proud. As for trusting the fairer sex; I once worked for 5 years in a 95/5 split in the women's favour. Then 20 years with predomenently males. Conclusion, men can be bigger bitches, by a mile. Whether readers agree with you or not, the poem is well crafted.

    I'll add my apology for any women that are offended. I know there are some decent women out there.......I just don't have much luck in that department. I seem to get burned anytime I try to trust women....throughout my entire life. Sorry, but, it's just my experience. :) I'd love to be proved wrong....a true friendship is something I've yet to find outside my marriage. Thanks for reading! Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
