The Man Written by a Woman


The man written by a woman

feels too good to be true.

Reassurance runs through his veins

as quickly as his mother’s blood.

With his wit

comes humor that never fails

to make you laugh.


The man written by a woman

makes you nervous

because what good

could a woman jotted down with inconsistent ink

on a discarded piece

of notebook paper

do for a man

written in calligraphy

with a feathered pen.


Turning the page seems easy with him.

Every chapter

better than the last.

You hope

this is the never ending storybook.

The novel where no one cries at the end.

You’ve never appreciated literature more

than the words

of the man written by a woman.

    keep up the good writing

    I really like this! The first thing that came to my mind was what Virginia Woolf wrote in "A Room of One's Own": "Women do not write books about men". And I love how you take the feminist road and describe exactly this and what good comes from it. Also, everything else aside, the metaphor is just impressive.

      This is such a sweet comment and I hate that I didn’t see it until now. Thank you so much, it means a lot to hear someone speak about my writing like this
