Men and Women Poetry: I Just Don't Understand

Updated on June 16, 2013


She tells me her troubles,

And my heart melts.

I try to tell her how to fix things,

And she starts to yell’

I WAS ONLY TRYING TO TELL YOU HOW I FELT!


She walks away,

I just don’t understand,

It’s like she wants me to be,

Some other kind of man.


I’ve put the weight of the world,

On my shoulders,

And still I endure,

So why doesn’t she want my help?

Why does she look sadder than before?


What kind of man am I,

If I can’t rescue my damsel in distress?

Maybe next time I’ll keep my mouth shut,

Because giving her solutions

Is a complete waste of breath.


Still I wish,

There was something I could do,

Because when my lady is sad,

I am too.

      I'm sure women will see this situation differently, but as men we can only go from our point of view. It's all about learning to understand each other in the end.

      Good poem. I think anyone should appreciate an attempt at advice though it is true that ladies just like to be listened to. I feel sorry for the man in this poem. Well done for putting over the point of view so well. Voted up and beautiful.

      I totally agree with you. The differences between men and women are what make relationships tick. The best thing we can all do as you said, is to communicate what our intentions are. All that really matters is our feelings of love for one another. Why fight when there is no need. Too much of that in this crazy world. Nice way to open up this conversation Phillydreamer.

      I think through efforts like this men and women can learn to communicate better. Just because women don't like the behavior doesn't mean the man was trying to be a jerk. When our intentions are noble we shouldn't be bashed for it. I'm hoping to see a woman's point of view for the challenge.

      What a great poem on the difference between men and women. I feel for the man as his attempts are just his love for his woman as he doesn't want to see her sad. What a great challenge-Mars vs. Venus-You picked a perfect topic to illustrate it.

      I think you mean "empathetic" not apathetic. When someone is listening they have some degree of caring. *Unfortunately, no matter how many times we say this, they still don't know sigh

      I like the poem, however, I won't be doing the challenge myself.

      I know that TToombs08, this poem was written for my poetry challenge Mars vs. Venus. I'm trying to express the male point of view in these situations. Thanks for reading.

      LOL! Sorry, I can't help myself. You have captured the angst of many a generation of men. Women don't want you to fix it, they just want you to listen and be apathetic. Practice "I'm sorry to hear that, babe." Voted up and more. :)
