men do not love women.

they desire them.

expect women to bend and break to their every whim.

but they do no love them.

and if they love them they do not respect them.

respect is something you give to a man, regardless of his looks or social status.

but it is not something you give to women.

you leave us empty. yet, we still rise. bear.


and somehow you think you are still stronger than these bones and this heart.
