Ode to Man on Valentines Day



What a curious creature we are!

Historically, we have had built and broken kingdoms.

Monuments have been built in our honour.

Prose have been penned in mourning both battle of war and heart.

We bore the very men who have bled for us, fought for us and died for us.

Men have loved us, not as we love them but as they love us.  Wild and bold.

We consume men, for they have longed for us in both pleasure and nurture and doing so

So I ask my fellow woman?

Whose kingdom are you building?

Whose kingdom are you breaking?

Did you know?

He lives for you.

He fights for you.

He would die for you.

He longs to care for your devotion and loyalty.

His being is permeated with the desire to provide for you and all consuming love for you.

His thoughts devour your being in both intimacy and honour.

He struggles for you in silence and he strives for understanding and acceptance.

Your body is more than for pleasure. Your more than flesh and feast.

You bore his child.  Part of him grew inside you and created his offspring.

He lives for you.

And here we stand faced with choice.

You can crush him or make his kingdom.

It all starts with you as we are responsible for ourselves.

What woman doesn’t want to be devoured?
