A man’s ode to love and confusion

As a man
I need a woman
Whom I can control
And
Who will challenge
Me
So I won’t be
Bored
A woman who will also
Worship my wisdom
And stimulate my mind
And be a brilliant
Conversationalist and attractive
So I will look
Good
But
Not too attractive
Or I will feel
Threatened
And not in control
So
I need someone
Who
Will stay home
So
I can feel secure
But
Then she will bore me
And I may need
To find someone else
Who will be attractive
And brilliant
But not too much
And
I need a woman
Who
Enjoys sex
So
I can demand
An orgasm
To feel like a man
But
If she enjoys sex
Too much
I will feel
Threatened
As I may not be
Man enough
For her
And so
I will demand
Virginity
So
Then I can feel safe
And put her on a pedestal
Which will bore
And frustrate me
And
I will give her
All the independence
She wants
As long as the house
Is clean
And dinner is on the table
At 6 p.m.
And
I will demand
That she not
Make demands on me
And so I will ask her to tell me
What she wants from me
As long as she
Doesn’t tell me What to do
And
I will be dependent on her
For reassurance
And reject her for making me
Dependent
And I will demand that
She love me And accept me
But her love and acceptance
May engulf me
So I will have to reject her
And of course
I will have to prove
I am not a wimp
By controlling her
Which will bore me
As I really like a challenge
But
Not too much
