    Is there anything worse
    Than a Woman scorned
    Yes, a Man whose heart
    Has been torn
    Apart by love
    Which he now admits
    But that she never knew

    Did he ever bring her flowers
    Did he take all his showers
    Alone

    How often did he
    Ask her to dance
    Understand the value
    Of simple romance

    Did he always look on others
    With such an appreciative eye
    While never letting her know
    That without her
    He would die

    Did he ever get to know her
    Did he ever really care
    About her views
    Her hopes
    Her dreams

    Maybe now
    But too late
    It seems

    Did he ever do more
    Than just pay the bills
    Does he know how it hurts
    When silence kills

    Is there anything more
    That a Woman needs
    Just ask the Man
    Whose heart now bleeds.

    I'm with this....

    and in my humble opinion.... there is no heart more difficult to mend, than the wounded heart of a man.

    Thank you for these important words, sis.

    Asante' Sana Fellow Poets:

    As with any kind of relationship, communication is "key."
    I hope yall' (Brothas & Sistas) are keeping your "lines" open and that you know how to "hear" when you listen. Talking about what I've learned.

    :heart: aND sOUL. THERE IS A PERSIAN PROVERB THAT SAYS;"IF A MAN THINK HE KNOWS AND DOES NOT KNOW HE IS A FOOL SHUN HIM.
    IF A MAN KNOWS BUT THINKS THAT HE DOES NOT KNOW HE IS ASLEEP WAKE HIM.
    IF A MAN KNOWS AND KNOWS THAT HE KNOWS HE IS WISE FOLLOW HIM!" This poem had heart and soul brotha, and that
    is realllllllll!

    Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words re: Is There Anything Worse... and not that's any huge big deal, but JNubian be's a Sista speaking a Sista's mind in hopes of mayhaps bringing a little enlightenment to some Brothas.

    Peace and Blessings,
    JNubian

    Fait du Faux Pas

    :eek: Sorry my sista I apologize your ability to articulate in such an androgynous manner made me presumtptious, then indeed you have reached an intended audience with your words cause you know what you know!

    I agree...when this happens to a man sometimes his heart cannot be repaired, because his heart and his manhood, what makes him a man, have been torn....

    while it is precious to hear those three little words, I love you, sometimes a man shows instead of speaks, and if we look deep, we will realise a man who supports and cares for his woman, shows he loves her in a thousand ways a day....
    he just doesn't say it in words...

    a great piece...
