Tenderness in moments of insecurity
Always makes me weaker
But callousness only pushes me away
I want appreciation and I always
Abuse it
I need compassion but I will misconstrue it
I beg for forgiveness while planning my
Next transgression
I love with all my heart, while hating
The vulnerability it brings
love me too deeply and I will
Certainly run away
But fail me and I will never forgive you
I want to be different but I refuse to change
I think Iím beautiful but I never believe
No matter how many times you say it
I am shy, aggressive, promiscuous and frigid
Insecure, cocky, jealous, unfeeling, neurotically
Emotional, especially at inappropriate times
Iím a woman damn it, and I just donít see
Why I canít find a man who understands me
