What inspired me to write this poem was a couple of men that I have had encounters with, assuming that bragging and boasting about what they can do for me would impress me, but the majority of these men didn't do anything but just talk. The funny thing about these scenarios was that I was attracted to them anyway, and they didn't have to say anything to try and impress me!(But ended up messing things up for themselves just by talking too much)


This issue has been on my mind for quite some time
These feelings of you that I have kept bottled
So that I wouldn't explode like a land mine
But now they are starting to burn my insides
So from this day on my thought I won't hide

Do you know that I like you for you
It's not always about the things that you do
Or shall I say don't do
Because you haven't done much
But made a bunch of empty promises
In which I'm tired of such
Lies & lies, I feel that I can't trust
You have turned into a stain
And your words are the rust

Things would be better
If you could keep your mouth closed
And stop spreading fabrications
That shouldn't be exposed
If you never intended to do it
You shouldn't have said it from the start
Because you can say anything on your mind
But it counts when it's from the heart

Your interpretations of impressing a woman are absolutely wrong
Because any man can go around sing those sad ole' songs
Actions speak louder than words, there is no statement truer
So you need to be less of a sayer,and start being more of a doer

wow, this is great....i love an angry woman(smile)..just kiddin guys...
this is really well written and expressed.
Welcome to passions, nice to have you here!!
take care, janet marie

 I love you
Is all that you can't say-
Years gone by and still...
Words don't come easily
Like I love you, I love you...
But you can say baby...
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you'd be mine...
Tracy Chapman
