Cages

it always hurts to hear
someone convinced
love puts up barriers,
pens them in,
demands ó
someone believing
love will use them,
chew them up,
and spit them out.

when I hear men
saying this I know
itís because
itís their smooth
excuse for sex
without commitment ó
the women
who love them
canít blame them
when they leave.

but for the women
Iíve known, itís because
theyíve known
the wrong men,
who trap, deceive.
it hurts to think
theyíve given up.

there still remain
a few of us.
believe.
