Porcelain and Steel


Porcelain and Steel

You are porcelain, I am steel,

Delicate emotions let you tenderly feel,

Behind steel walls my feelings I conceal,

We’re from the same species I would say,

But how different we are; it blows me away,

You’re rough and tough until you build your nest,

While I continue to hunt or continue a quest,

What you wanted was someone like me,

Someone with a sense of adventure and mystery,

A bad boy persona who would bend the norms,

Who would fight to be with you,

Come hell or great storms,

If I tried, I could be really good,

But I don’t think you would respond,

Like I think you should,

You’re soft and sweet but I handle with care,

For sometimes I find a tigress there,

I don’t understand how you change on some days,

If I’m smart I just get out of your way,

We’re different and you have your need,

But a man is made to spread his seed,

You picked a bad boy and you’re to blame,

Now you’re determined I should be tamed,

So make a plan where you think and pause,

You can’t keep me with talons or claws,

I’ll help you out with two quick tips,

I’m much attracted to soft words and soft lips,

Inside this shell I’m tender as can be,

Be gentle and careful how you treat me,

And this bad boy will use strength and charm,

To hold you forever and keep you from harm.

  1. This is so good. In a way it reminds me of my favorite song that I played when John and I were married, called Magnet and Steel. I like your ways of saying this too. Where the song talks of complete attraction and yours talks about holding on without breaking or maybe scaring off.

    1. Hopefully I’ll write another poem that you’ll like.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
