“So Just Kiss Me”

The following is a poem by Jewel. I think it attests to a woman’s reaction to a masculine man with an alpha mindset. Enjoy.

 

“So Just Kiss Me”

So just kiss me and let my hair
messy itself in your fingers

tell me nothing needs to be done-
no clocks need winding

There is no bell without a voice
needing to borrow my own

instead, let me steady myself
in the arms

of a man who won’t ask me to be
what he needs, but lets me exist

as I am

a blonde flame
a hurricane

wrapped up
in a tiny body

that will come to his arms
like the safest harbor

for mending
