Insecurities In a Woman

Don't be jealous of me 
it really hurts my heart 
be my friend, please
I desire not yours truly.

Stop, halt the sadness
put harsh faces in check
take a hold of gladness
keep the madness in the past.

I heard of friends leaving out the backdoor
when you come home from work through the front 
I'm not like that, I have my dignity
I just like good men and wish I had one.

Many think I do, and
that may be true, but
if I can't feel the connection and bonding of true love
then its not there, or maybe 
he don't want me to see it or know it.

So stop the crazies
get out, stay out of my face
I'm tired of the emotional trip
you women seem to be on.

For the last time I like men wit good qualities, but
I don't sleep with them
I may flirt, but I don't want them
I'm just attracted to it all.

I'm faithful to man
though I feel as unloved as a rotten squash
I may look like a female in distress, but rest assure
I'm not so much since I got a straight man
