What is it about me?
I can't understand,
the men in my life,
are completely profound.

I attract the right men,
who are wanted by all.
It starts very slowly,
in passionate brawls.

At first we have fun,
and in time we get close,
you tell me your wishes,
your heartaches, and woes.

I'm drawn in by your essence,
you're kind, and you're fun.
Respectful and gorgeous,
your webs have been spun.

There are three little things,
I look to fulfill,
emotional, mental,
with physical thrills.

So why, when you have it,
must you let it go?
The magical moments
are not just for show.

I can honestly say that
I've never been used,
instead you respect me,
so why am I blue?

You leave me alone,
with nothing but dreams,
but you never quite vanish,
it's not what it seems.

You all check with me,
at least twice a week,
to have lengthy discussions
for answers you seek.

You'll come spend the night,
wrap your arms around me,
but you refuse to make love,
it's not sex that you need.

I've heard time again,
that one day will be right,
they don't want to hurt me,
but the future looks bright.

What's wrong with me, or the men I attract????

Wow! This is a passionate poem, Tulip.
Wish I could help, you but doesn't say
if the men you have found and admire
are in love with another woman???

In my youth, I remember asking the same questions Tulip ... lovely flowing and questioning poem.  The answers you seek lie within, just take the time to be honest with yourself and find the common theme. Sometimes the best relationships "begin" with friendship ...

Best wishes to find your true love,
/Kit

netswan,
Yes, as a matter of fact, both men recently ended long term relationships.  (Over 6 years each)  Both of them were the recipients of the relationships ending, not the ones to end it.  It's been at least 9 months since they ended, but they both still have feelings for their ex's.  I feel fortunate that out of all the women they have both seen, they both have been honest with me, while the other women they have dated it's been a "slam-bam-thank you-mam" only.  I don't think it hurts any less though because I DO develop my feelings.
Kit,
They've both turned in to wonderful friends.  I hope one day to have more again...

Okay, I'm not an expert, but I'd like to give you my guess... Maybe they see what a wonderful friend you are and are afraid to take it to another level.  From your reply to Netswan, it seems that these two guys separate their concepts of intimacy.  Just my humble guess.  If this is the case, treasure their friendship, in return.  What will be will come about.

Great poem, by the way.  I've been there before and the words of your poem described it so well.

pen of passion,
I'd love to hear your answer.  I keep searching for the things that I've done wrong, but I know it's not about me.  I just don't want it to keep happening over and over again!!
DiObear,
I do treasure their friendships...very much.  I keep hearing from the people around me that I shouldn't accept their friendships, and maybe they would decide one way or another what they want.  But I don't feel that's right.  I want their love, and I'm not going to force it.  If it's meant to be it will happen automatically.  Sigh...

Tulip, although I am not an expert either, I will tell you what I feel is the answer via email, but I do not have your address.

I have to agree with DioBear on this one. . . perhaps you have become so close of a friend to these men that they don't want to lose that. . . yes, men can be like that. . . it doesn't make sense I know. . .

But you're right too. . . if it's meant to be. . .

This was a great poem tulip. . . I can feel the passion and the confusion. . . keep looking my friend, you will find the answers that you seek. . .

Sven,
I'll continue on one way or another!
Pandora,
I don't feel that "better" is out there.  Both of these men are excellent people.  I just happen to be the type of person that really listens to people's feelings, and I autimatically fall into the role.  I'm going to have to work on changing that!!!  As for settling, NEVER!!!!  I do respect myself, and I'll only "settle" for the very best!
