did i shave my legs for this?

by Nanette Bellman

you tell me that you love me. 
        that you're in love with me.
well, why is it
i only feel loved
when you're on top of me
and inside me


Author's Note: when you roll your eyes, it makes me want to smack them out of your head.

I LOVED the title of this poem! It said it all!

Fantastically honest and real!

You don't know how many times I've wanted to write a poem with this title. Now I'm with a guy who claims he doesn't care if I shave my legs (though I do because I care....lol). Anyway, your author's note - it makes us soul sisters!

I read this poem a few times...it has a couple of different layer for the reader. I love the title and can relate to this.

that certainly is the trick, to feel loved before and after the act, to feel a love which is not a spur of the moment thing, but love everlasting. this poem will last, for reason there is pure love in it.

This title cracks me up. I've asked myself that question a time or two...!

indeed. i say, next time, don't shave at all. ...heh. on a serious note, i wish i couldn't relate to this--but i can. it made me uncomfortable with remembrance. the only thing i could hope to get from poetry is that it makes me feel anything, at all. good job.

Wow! what a write lol, has the bloke read it? He'll blush forever!

AH. i had a "relationship" for a year with a guy that revolved around this concept. it's very hard, and shows just how complicated we women are. you said it eloquently and beautifully.

oh wow, this is like my other poem. are we twins?

Wow...nothing like only feeling loved during sex. I had a relationship once, almost a year long, that felt like it was only sex with some sometimes socializing.
