Just Want

Guys just want to see pretty girls;

Girls just want to be unseen;

Seen only by lovely Desire;

Guys like them young;

And say, “I like [young] … girls women?”

Women girls say, “I like bad boys”

Boys men say, “my bad”

But how bad-good or good-bad?


Guys just want to see pretty girls

Girls just want to be unseen;

Guys like them how young;

Girls like them fun;

Guys can look at your daughter;

And see what you used to look like

Desire;


Girls don’t look at boys;

Women don’t look at boys either,

Or bother to smell their sneakers, socks, stockings, and what else who knows?


Guys may pause though

Even if not into girly stench-ed scented sneakers,

Because you looked like she when

You were young, and life smells only sterile.

Like we died inside formaldehyde.


Who is more beautiful?

The tensed and troubled face attached to your body that looks like mine,

Or a face that evokes and mirrors Desire at the same time?

We cannot have it Desire permanently.

She comes fast and goes slow and may never come back again,

Though her remnants lingerie-like linger, longing long after.

Even after you are gone, she will be there.

Just not with you.

Nothing to smell or hold on to, no one that is.


Guys just want to see pretty girls

Girls just want to be unseen by

Low self-esteem.

That’s why they want to be unseen,

Because they cannot be in love if they are in love with love.

But guys I know better;


They just want to look at [young] girls,

And girls just want to be seen by what they like to see.

We can choose to chase life, or

Choose to move closer to death.

There’s a sense there’s danger in both there is.


Girls just want bad boys;

Guys just want to see pretty girls,

Both just want a thrill

But to see if they are still alive

 or alone.
