We Are Not Just For Bed Poem by Kemi Kemms

We Are Not Just For Bed

Rating: 4.5


Late in the night
Unknown number wakes me up
Late in the night
Text message with my name
Asking if that is me

He introduces himself
Says we met a while ago
I can't remember his face
He gave me a one-minute-ride home
From my friend in a heavy rainy day

He calls me a simple girl
Hopes I will understand what's next
Pretending to be shy but asks nevertheless
If I would like to meet him occasionally
Cause he'd like that very much too

Does my face imply I'm a public inventory?
Or that I need strangers inside me?
Who's gonna buy me flowers?
Who's gonna take me to see movies?
Who's gonna wipe my tears through bad times?
Who's gonna see me for the whole that I am?

I'm a woman of heart and wisdom!
I'm a woman of education and health!
I'm a woman of values and freedom!
I'm a woman of talents and aims!
I'm a woman, a respectful woman!
I deserve more than just that!
