Women go through emotions and reactions to love that are unique to men. We all experience different levels of love, and we all know someone that fits inside these poems. Below is poetry about the plight of women in the game of love:

POEM: DAISIES

I call him

I call him not.

 

I call him

I call him not.

 

Wait

 

Maybe I’ll just

Text him.

 

Right?

 

POEM: BRAIN FANTASY

When are some women going to stop?

Obsessing over men

And what they think

Or what you think

About the night before

Or stuff he said

Or didn’t.

 

And you fake it in your brain fantasy.

The brain fantasy

That ruins your logic

Your reality.

 

Cause he might not be

Close

To thinking about you

The way

You do.

 

POEM: WHAT’S A LOVE POEM WHEN YOU LOVE ALONE?

What’s a love poem when you love alone?

It’s glistening in your dreamful sun

An accomplishment

That he doesn’t

Ask about.

It’s a sad weird thing

Deep inside

You think

He thinks

Of you

Sometimes.

 

And you think of him

All the time.

 

What’s a love poem when you love alone?

It’s thinking in between thoughts

About someone

A penetrating image

In your head

When you love alone

You continue to be there

With your thoughts

As you think it is

Or actually should be

Doesn’t make it ours.

 

What’s a love poem when you love alone?

It’s a deep seated passion for someone beneath the unknown surface that reeks taste. 

POEM: IMPRESS

Who are you trying

To

Impress?

 

When you go there

In your mind

And think if

Doing something

You can do to

Impress him.

 

And your mind becomes

Him

You think about accomplishments

In your head

And think

Yeah

I’m awesome

And he’ll know it

Soon.
