Women Love - Poem by Richard Antwi

The love of women
So hidden, but so sturdy
Not so fierce, yet powerful
It’s not easily recognised
As it takes only the prudent to comprehend
The first love of women

The love of women
Not as men
That cannot hide their emotions
At first sight
Within seconds, men express
Superficial love to a woman

The love of women
So strong, so undaunted
Yet concealed among them
Takes weeks to manifest
Yet, stronger than men’s love
Once loved, for eternity!

The love of women
Takes only the intellect
To understand
Once in an undergraduate class
Among thirty in a class
Only three men
And twenty-seven women
Out of these, ten loved me
But never realised

One after the other came unsuspectingly
Asked few questions, then disappeared
Another came as a study mate
Made some insignificant inquiries
And came no more
Their main purpose
Was for me to follow them up
But never became conscious

The love of Women,
So crafty and astute,
By the time I became aware
All ten needed my affection
But too late to realise
Some people are smart academically
But not smart when it comes to
Women Love!
