A Poem by Jean E. Shire

A man's perspective


She’s the center of my world,

Beautiful inside out,

Green eyes, and her hair is curled,

Filling her with doubt,


She’s scared of many things,

Shies away from my affection,

Afraid of what love brings,

Yet craves for my protection,


She couldn’t be any more perfect,

Would not want me to stay,

Because she thinks she’s worthless,

And insulted by everything I say,


At those times I want to confess,

Tell her nothing but the truth about,

My love and loneliness,

Her lips and cute pout,


Her freckled nose is just right,

As are her dimples and chin,

And her figure and height,

Even her soft, clear skin,


She always says she’s fat,

But I love her stomach,

Whether chubby or flat,


Every spot I can kiss,

Makes me feel like this.

Like this wonderfully written poem from the man's point of view
of the woman he loves. It's great to read what men think of
women sometimes, you've done a wonderful job here
being a woman yourself. Shows insight on your part.

You have skill and talent. Nice job.

I really liked this poem. I think that a lot of guys can relate to this poem. Girls never really understand how much they are appreciated by the one they love. This poem explains it very well. Great job.

For walking into the opposite perspective, you have done a really good job!
Being a male, there are a few things that I would have worded differently..but for the most part.. you hit the thoughts right on. That takes talent and alot of observation skills! Kudos!

I have to agree. This poem flows very nicely and many women do want people whom they love and adore to think those thoughts of them. Altogether it was very beautiful.

With your screen name I really wasn't expecting this type of poem, but it was really beautiful and special. (I think I was expecting something about vampires.) I think those are the kind of things every woman wants the person in love with her to feel and think. I loved this poem.
