Girly Boy

I wrote this for all the girly boys who are suddenly replacing real men. The ones who take hours to dress, talk like girls, walk like girls, bitch like girls and PMS like girls. And you know what, they don't like boys! They're fun but they're so like girls and not girls, they date girls like a girl would date a guy...

Turning round and round

See who’s watching you

And there’s nobody there

Staring into nowhere

Girly, delicate boy

When you know its no use

Why don’t you just face the abuse

She comes along

Sings her song

Her flowing long hair

She takes you nowhere

She clings to you

Her little body moving

Faster than your mind can think

You know every shade

Of her lipstick

Sticky stick

You got your skinny frame

You’ve got the gift of the gab

Your dreams are lame

You’re constantly stabbed

You argue just like a child

It always takes you awhile

To get to where you’re going

Your face is just like a girl

And your mind is a whirl

Of emotional things

Of summers and springs

Girly, delicate boy

You wrote it all down

Her lines and yours

She thought you were a toy

You woke up everyday

With so much to say

That you could never hear

I read your poem and I thought you were being sympathetic with this girly boy. I read your explanation and I felt you kind of detested these girly boys. But why do you want to explain your poetry. Let people draw their own conclusions. Be like Robert Plant :) .

@ Kartiek- I do detest these girly boys! I like men, not girls! i like gay men, bcoz they're different- they have their own personalities. these guys just emulate girls!
I'm just paranoid. I keep seeing these girly boys everywhere and it feels like men will disappear behind pink shirts and tight pants with golden details!
