51 Reasons

51 Reasons

A Poem by Sasha
"

I've been in love with men my whole life. I thought about why and this is what I came up with. Don't take it too seriously. Some reasons are based on personal experience. I won't say which. :P

"

It's just...

The way you put on a show though you know you're scared.

The way you swear you're nonchalant though you truly care.

The way you flinch a little as you tell a blatant lie.

The way you think a fake mustache is a great disguise.

The way you tell a corny joke and then proceed to laugh.

The way "separate a yolk" means cutting it in half.

The way you'd get your leg chopped off and claim it doesn't hurt.

The way you think, "Lame pick-up lines? Awesome way to flirt!"

The way you think I don't notice when you check out my a*s.

The way that though I'm well aware, you pick your eyes up fast.

The way you frown at shopping, but gadgets make you swoon.

The way you suck at cleaning and are worthless with a broom.

The way you marvel at my breasts and wonder if they're real.

The way you simply can't resist and try to cop a feel.

The way a lot of things you do don't make a lick of sense.

The way fighting each other is sufficient recompense.

The way you have nice toes but do nothing for your feet.

The way you think you're nothing special though you're so unique.
The way you get uncomfortable sometimes when you are touched.

The way you run around a lot and have amazing butts.

The way you strike a pose and show off for all the ladies.

The way catching a cold turns you all into big babies.

The way your massive man-body can easily dwarf mine.

The way you enjoy learning and have such a brilliant mind.

The way you like to dominate but ain't too proud to beg.

The way yo- what the hell? Get your hand off of my leg!

The way you make that frowny face when you don't get your way.

The way you go the extra mile in hopes of getting laid.

The way you're an exterminator when I spot a bug.

The way deep down, there's nothing better than kisses and hugs.

The way your man-giggle is exceptionally cute.

The way being around your friends turns you into brutes.

The way you strut around the house as though your word is law.

The way you know I run this and it's no problem at all.

The way you do a little jig when your team is winning.

The way you had no clue, but you knew from the beginning.

The way holding your baby makes you shed "manly tears".

The way you open up sometimes - expressing hopes and fears.

The way that when I get upset, you never know why.

The way "What are you thinking?" is a mystery of life.

The way your eyes, voice and smile bring me to my knees.

The way your house specialty is freakin' Mac-N-Cheese.

The way you make me smile with your strange sense of humor.

The way you dislike drama and don't value stupid rumors.

The way that when you touch me, it sends my heart aflutter.

The way you love my skin and tell me that I'm "soft like butter." =/

The way you're not too confident, but proud of who you are.

The way that when I need you, you are never very far.

The way you can't seem to truly understand that I must adore you just because you are a man.

...51 reasons out of a million.

Hahaha this was a lot of fun to read! Funny, true, and it had a pretty nice flow to it. As a guy I feel like I have done so much of this stuff and even though I am aware of the 'dumb' stuff I still continue to do it. For Example....

'The way you put on a show though you know you're scared.
The way you swear you're nonchalant though you truly care.
The way you flinch a little as you tell a blatant lie.'


Also the shameless, impulsive, yet socially acceptable male sex drive that is referenenced throughout the poem is summed up well in this absolute truth......'The way you go the extra mile in hopes of getting laid.'

The line.....'The way "separate a yolk" means cutting it in half.'

I like this line because it sums up one of the more subtle themes in this poem. Mainly that most dudes tend to be rather literal.

'The way you strike a pose and show off for all the ladies.
The way catching a cold turns you all into big babies.'

Hahahaha thats just funny!


'The way you're an exterminator when I spot a bug.'

Haha, again, so true. I mean even though some girls just put on a show about how creepy and death defyingly scary bug are, I always feel kind of badass after I 'save the day' and kill that giant spider.


'The way you had no clue, but you knew from the beginning.' I know I keep repeating myself but this is so f*****g true.


Lastly, as much as this was about a man I feel like some of these lines could apply to either a man or woman....with the third one it depends on the circumstance!


'The way you make that frowny face when you don't get your way.'

'The way you enjoy learning and have such a brilliant mind.'

'The way you like to dominate but ain't too proud to beg.'


Again, I really enjoyed this! Nice Work!

A very comforting piece. But why don't all women understand these traits of mine are such loveable qualities?

yes...i liked this. This stuff is so true too. I could come up with my own list about women as well...but i doubt it would be this good.

great job!

Outstanding! It's really good. I loved the last line, it was a perfect ender. Nice rythm, by the way. Great job!

The way this poem is so tenderly human and balanced... It is so refreshing to see an objective and subjective viewpoint simultaneously expressed by a woman (who has clear understanding and intelligence) and appreciates the positives and negatives of the gender contradictions...why opposites attract. There may be a few generalisations here about men, but that is not important if you have an open mind - everything that is said here relates in some way -if not completely- to all types of the male race. I could give you a run-down of the counterpoints to this piece, but I think it is already tacitly understood when you read between the lines. In any case, should I begin such an undertaking I would just end up writing another poem which would be the male companion piece to this one. And the review box just isn't big enough...
A lovely, well-conceived and well-crafted piece of work.

this was a great laugh, but more than that it summed up simplistic attitude of men. everything is just straight out and simple and you found great rhyming lines.

Posted 7 Years Ago


OoO *sobs* That. Was SO sweet. But why "butts"? just for the rhyme? if so then fine. You are truly gifted to have so many reasons to love someone, to know what they are and to put them in a ay so they rhyme perfectly, I love it! I also love how real it is! It's so true!! I'm going to read again when i get home. Amazing.

This piece was so enjoyable to read, that I didn't mind how long it was...I can't tell you how many times I smiled, and even laughed. As a fellow lover of men in general, I just want to applaud you for writing this, because someone HAD to. And I'm a tinge jealous that it wasn't me. LOL. My favorite lines:

"The way you'd get your leg chopped off and claim it doesn't hurt.
The way you think, "Lame pick-up lines? Awesome way to flirt!"
The way you think I don't notice when you check out my a*s.
The way that though I'm well aware, you pick your eyes up fast."


and

"The way your eyes, voice and smile bring me to my knees.
The way your house specialty is freakin' Mac-N-Cheese.
The way you make me smile with your strange sense of humor.
The way you dislike drama and don't value stupid rumors."

Such truth! Brilliant!
