Wishy Washy Like Sidelining A Car Wash - Poem by s./j. goldner

But yet I don't think women truly like it
when another woman speaks her mind.
because part of her wishes she had done it-

and the other part is envious of the affection
she receives, the respect, more frankly given
from the opposite sex.

    Maybe that's one of the reasons Freud said that he had no idea what women want. But then, I get the idea Freud was an odd kinda guy. Not that I know much on the subject myself, but I get intrigued rather than frustrated by it. My girlfriend sometimes confuses the hell out of me, and it's just one of the million reasons I love her.

    women are one of those subjects i'm fairly certain i will never really understand.. so thanks for the insight. to say something well simply takes wit but to convey your point concisely takes talent. the latter is evident on this one.

    Only second rate minds are envious, but this is far from second rate poetry. Excellent as always. (Report)Reply

    A woman's apprehension will be her downfall, and her competitive nature will render her lonely. Great poem, I think it's got something to say that oughta be heard around the world.

    Another revealing piece from you Sus. It is true of us women, esp. the young ones. Feminists or others may totally disagree. But there's always the Him we're aware of, and whom we compete among ourselves to please, in quiet. (Report)Reply
