Poems

Every Woman Is Every Woman

Every woman is every woman

To a player like me

Every woman is every woman

When they lay by me

Each kiss I miss, so much each touch, the love was shared, I showed I cared

You felt it too, but, I dealt with you.

Every woman is every woman

Every word spoken is a lie

Every woman is every woman

Each promise will be broken by and by

Each moment I cherish, I know, it will perish and I’ll hold you as you cry.

Every woman is every woman

Innocence is fleeting

Every woman is every woman

It’s a new danger that you’re meeting

With words of honey, you’ll think that it’s funny how,

You were happy alone before I helped you to moan

Encouraging laughter, but, nothing after:

No meal, no drink no reason to think there was anything wrong, then, before long, gone.

Every woman is every woman

To a loser like me

Every woman is every woman

To a user like me

Hiding my faults, secrets and lies

Twisting out of emotional ties

Always there, but never around

At family ‘do’s’ I can’t ever be found.

Every woman is every woman

To a bully like me

Every woman is every woman

You won’t, fully, like me

It isn’t the pain from some long lost love or ‘cos we fit like a hand in a glove

It isn’t my father who is to blame

It isn’t my mother, she’s exactly the same

My mind isn’t twisted, defective or dud.

I wasn’t dropped (as a tot), with a big heavy thud.

It isn’t fear of commitment, I don’t fear the unknown

There isn’t some childhood ‘issue’ I haven’t outgrown

It’s just when I’m with you, when us two are alone, the door is locked and I’ve turned off the phone…my pleasure is yours and yours alone.
