I AM...

Just a man

That wants to love you

Body and Soul

Heart and Mind

To love you with all I have

Spiritually, Mentally, Physically

To be in love with you

Day, Night, always falling

            For I am...


Just A Man

A man whom is searching for

the face of God

By doing what is right

By treating you right

That he may bless our love

For without him we do not stand a chance

To be together.....forever

           For I am....


Just a man

A man who fights his fears

That he is not good enough

To love someone like you

Totally, completely, unconditionally

A man who yearns to touch your delicate skin

To hold your lovely body

To kiss your fair lips

To make love with you so passionately

For he feels so unworthy

of such a marvelous beauty

Of such a natural splendor

As you

         For I am...


Just a man

That longs to be closer than close to you

Oh so near, but yet so far away

When I am with you

Into your mind is where I long to be

Your very soul is my being

My hiding place is within your heart


Can this man be given the chance

To do all these things with you?

For you?

To you?

Can you forgive this man's shortcomings?

His fears?

His tears?


Will you hold him when he cries over you?

Will you scold him when he's mad at you?

But most importantly...will you still love him?


       For I am...


        Just a man.

WoW! Such tender passion. Your words are so intimate and humble, the way true love should be. You are not just a man, but a real man brave enough to open his very soul. Beautiful writing! Bravo! Sincerely, Ingrid

Star, this is absolutely beautiful! This is so personal and filled with love. I like it very much. I wish that she had appreciated you! To have these feelings and to be creative enough to put them to pen and paper makes me know that she had something wonderful in you. From your writings, I can see that you are a gentle, loving and forgiving MAN! I sincerely appreciate your poetry and your passion. :) Janice.

This is a poem I wrote about we men and our insecurities. At times we feel as if we are not good enough to be in love with a woman. Doubts come up because we place her on a pedestal so high that it makes us feel inferior to her. So this is my attempt at trying to explain to the world those feelings.
