Of Understanding Men | #CapturedInWords


'You do not understand men.' 
You scolded me
A final statement 
A parting blow 

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men 
Is something very, very important
And I missed the memo

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men  
Every single last one of you
Is my responsibility 

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men  
Is a great prize 
That I don't have the luck to win 

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men 
Is commendable 
And I don't warrant a merit 

'You do not understand men.'
As if I understand myself 
And understanding men
Is just so easy and finite 

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men
Is a privilege
That I don't deserve 

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding men
Should be accomplished 
In a mere moment

'You do not understand men.'
As if understanding 
Is a one way street 
That comes to an end 

'You do not understand men.'
You scolded me
As a violent deflection
From understanding you at all 

Captured In Words

I have a terrible habit of never finishing what I set out to write and you know what? That’s fine. For me, writing is a progressive, evolutionary act and so I try to publish in short, first drafts to give myself less of a hard time and the freedom to capture whatever I feel at a given time. 


You can follow along on Instagram with the hashtag. I’d love it if you added your own, too.
