My self people cannot see, so this I write to define me.

For my self, children are a special joy,I say they are not as part of a ploy.

My self fears to be misunderstood and thought absurd so on this I brood.

My eye follows a woman's every curve, not in lust but because they are a pleasure to observe.

My gaze is not meant to embarrass or as an insult or to harass.

The most beauty and pleasure I could hope to find, lies within a woman's eyes. The rare glimpse I get is a special prize.

Because the eyes are the window to the soul, to look into a woman's eyes takes all my self-control.

To admit to all the little things which I enjoy would have man deny me, an idea with which I toy.

My self must stay hidden in my armor, to hide my sensitivity. For I would rather woman label me cold than man label me with disloyalty, a thing untrue to me.

My self cannot credit woman with a mind or heart or plea, to do so would deny my armor's reality.

DreamEvil, Something about this really touched me, I think it is the respect you portray within that got me, so back for a second round for you.

Well now, a little unveiling. Good job. That didn't hurt so bad did it? I laugh at pen of passion there. Well done Dream! But hey, men won't look at you like that. They all see women the same way!

What you said. Me, too. Women make this world one beautiful place to be. No doubt about it.

All you feminazis out there... I don't care. I'm wired for visual. Go sue the manufacturer.

What happens to the 'ugly' women then?! (Just curious!) You seem so conflicted, DreamEvil. I hope you find/have peace.
