A Woman is a


For dogs
A woman is a
Lump of meat
For a lust
A woman is an
Object of desire
For a saint
A woman is a
Mother with new light.

    Line 5 should read: A woman is an

    Just for the record, our dog loves my wife as a mother, a companion, yes, even a saint. Maybe a lion would be a better beast of prey. (Report) Reply

    really enjoyed this poem. It is sharp as the edge of a knife and also soothing and comforting to the soul. A woman represents so many things and lets the mind wander. Beautiful work. Thank you for reading my poetry as well. (Report) Reply

    Dear Mishra,

    Can we think as follows?

    For a lust
    A woman is a
    Lump of flesh to rape!

    For dogs
    A woman is a
    Mistress to caress!

    For a saint
    A woman is
    his own Mother to worship!

    Agree to disagree....

    For Women, men are dogs...
    For women, men are amorous
    For women, men have no emotions
    For women, men have but one use... (for child birth)
    What about when women cheat..... nothing.... (Report) Reply
