And woman, my woman
Don’t let yourself fall into the arms of a man
Who knows too well
How to crush your shoulders in, to make space for himself.
Don’t let your heart give in
To the meatiness of his personality
Attitudes and auras fade faster than the smoke
You puff every night at the club
to attract him.
And women aren’t made of glass you see
We are usually rubber
We were made to expand and grow
To form a protective layer
Around all that is;
Take it in
Take it all
The Demanding (For everything is better than hurt?)
Just take it all, and make it better
For we make houses homes.
But hush now,
For you must concentrate.
Things go bad and things go bitter
If you can’t sit down and properly cut the cake
Or be the cake
So give as long you want,
But if that stops working
You are but just a rubber band
– at your ends, ready to break
But don’t say anything, even if it gets hard
For don’t you see?
He loves you, even though you’re a liability
An extra responsibility
You’re not the root of anything –
So don’t let yourself fall into the arms of a man
Who will crush your shoulders in
It will not matter how long you can endure the pain
Or how long you hold on smiling through your teeth
With tears in your eyes –
You will one day break
And when you do
They’ll burn you
And then he’ll say
The smell irritates him.
