The Wanting - Poem by Reginald Goodridge

we walked it too many times and now I'm tired
famished
extremely ready to make a move
but the time is never quite
right

over lifestyles and under deep consideration
misjudged
blinded by stereotypes and prescriptions
of what a woman should be
wanting

    I always assume I don’t have what a woman wants
    And begin working from the angle of changing her mind.
