Man and Woman

You like mystery
I like certainty
You like things left to the imagination
I like the imagination turned reality
You like the eternal chase
I like once and for all caught
You like to wonder
I like your wonder
You like the questions
I need the answers
You want to me to hold back
I want to be held
You want the joy of discovery
I want the joy of constancy
You want to compete for the prize
I want to be safe in your eyes
You want me to hide
I want to be found

You want
I want
Incomplete without
And yet
Tell me now
Why is it
That life has a DIFFERENT flavor
When you’re not here with me?

I'll never see through your eyes
and you'll never see through mine
But when our bodies entertwine
There is that taste of the DIVINE

    Just a mild clarification Eileen, I like what you say you like. I want what you say you want. Now, what you say I want.. Well, that's what I find irresistible. So a lady who wants romance over many years can't get lazy. Ya got to give enough to satisfy want but not enough to get that notch in his belt.

    Guys like the chase....the allure, the attraction , the satisfaction...not all men mind you.....the facts are inert to man that we seek a woman to procreate....the only fault to this is man has a brain that can circumvent the process...thought provoking Eileen....hugs

    I feel the same way about Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

    I have learned recently how very different men and women think, when I asked a friend, "why does my husband do..." they answered, "because he is a guy" that is the answer to everything, we are so completely different it is wonder we are attracted, I guess that is what keeps life interesting. Great thoughts Eileen. I enjoyed your comparisons :)

    I harken back to the Paula Abduhl track.."two steps forward, I take two steps back, opposites attract" Another good one!
