Lovin a Man

Updated on March 17, 2011

Did you ever think lovin a man

could bring you so much pain?

There ain't a moment your thoughts don't stray to him

Where's he? What's he doing?

Who's he doing it with? Damn!

They come home eight hours late

look you in the eyes and lie what the hell!

Who need this shit?

As if I needed an extra gray hair

Life's too short to be worrying what that man is about

There are better things to do

Lovin a man ain't nothin but heartache

Fuss and fight, then make love

What's all this bullshit for?

I'd be better off with a damn dog

Jumpin Josephus, where the hell is that man?

Wash his clothes cook his dinner, I'm not his damn Momma

did you think lovin a man could bring so much drama?

You love him, hate him, I just be damn, damn

Cut me some slack, do I look the fool

you try and make me out to be?

They cuddle and coo when it suits their needs

Wait just a damn minute, don't I have needs too

I've learned one thing, it's lovin a man

brings nothing but drama and drama

I can do with out, but my man pain,

heartache and all, he's my man

I'm hooked

      Thanglynn: You couldn't be more right! Men go thru that very same twisting, turning & loopin' emotional rollercoaster (we just don't like to admit, lol!)

      writing menace: 100% true! Very few things can overpower love

      ek skills: Thanks for becoming a fan! I agree w/writing menace, this is a pretty deep piece & I love the comparison to the kaleidoscope!

      There are so many facets to love, sometimes its like looking through a kaleidoscope

      That's deep yet the heart cant stray away just to avoid pain, because the loving over powers the stress and pain at times.

      Every woman can relate. Sadly, there is no such thing as a perfect love. And love can easily turn into hatred. You love him, but you hate him, and you hate that you love him, and you hate that you don't really hate him but that you really love him when you should be hating him. Love can be sooo confusing! And can drain you emotionally...but yet we stay because we are prisoners of love. Hoping that love will ultimately result in our favor.
