Not ' Catch And Release '! - Poem by Barry Van Allen

It is the slurppy, sloppy, tender stuff,
that she wants to know about,
It's not the harder stuff that life is made of,
that gets her interest peaked.

It is the syrup, and the fluffiness,
the gossip, and the other rough stuff,
that most men can't relate to,
... that makes us feel weak - kneed!

It is the mean part of most women,
- - - that brutal honesty,
that most of us have trouble with,
and won't admit that we don't want to hear.

They are supposed to be our ' Better Half ',
when, in fact, theyr'e worse than us,
about saying what should not be said,
... regardless of the cost.

It is usually our blind - side,
where she approaches us,
while we are unaware - - -
that we're supposed to be in love,
... when we knew that we were after
something else!

Women always say - - -
that they know what we are after,
and, the problem is they 're right,
... but, it's the secondary goal,
... that puts you on the alter,
... mumbling and fumbling,
... that loving and that faltering,
... a nervous, almost faint,
... that makes you say , ' i do '!

It is the party and the night ahead,
that put your thoughts to rest,
- - - and the resolve that you were right,
- - - that you feel... what you feel,
- - - that let her put you... in her creel!

    I love the first line...the slurpy, sloppy tender stuff. Yea...that works for awhile...until it fades...and then the hardness of life settles in. Yes...women can be...brutally honest wonder guys just want to hang out with their golf...watching hockey....playing cards...
