A Day Without a Secure Man is Like a Day Without Sunshine.

Secure men do exist

my friend Rachel told me

More than half of all are secure

These men are rocks

Slow to anger

Quick to listen

and resolve those upsets

or unknowns

He won’t leave

at the first eruption

of a conflict

The secure man is content

with you

and the life you have

He believes in you

He believes in the “us”


Partners who grew up

in hostile or scarcity surrounds

believe safety of self

can only come

If you don’t grow close

and you keep up the distance

creating drama

playing mind games

walking out in a huff

when there is a slight upset

Anxiousness rides his wave

and it serves to only

injure you

eroding your natural confidence

Too easily blaming yourself

thinking it’s me it’s me

This insecure man

hides his family from you

He bad mouths you to his friends

His friends always come first

like a male to a male’s lover

These anxious men take up the dating pool

All the secure men are at home

with their partners

for the long haul

So, I say, if you

start to become insecure yourself

and doubt who you are

or what you believe in


He wants to sleep in another bed

Go away on holidays without you

Say goodbye

Close the door

Make sure

the next one is quizzed straight up

if he’s in for the long haul

on day one, not one day

otherwise its

next please.

      Sanjay thank you so much for your kind comment in relation to my writing.

      Like you were saying below Sanjay we need anchors in our lives. However it can be some people choose to be the anchor while others will volunteer another to be the anchor.

      So good of you to come over for a visit Sanjay.

      The man needs a strong anchor to feel secure, even if most of them keep the anchor changing.

      It is better for everyone if we can beome secure within ourselves but not always so easy to do.

      I am glad you enjoyed this poem Elijah.

      Peace to You.

      I'm so glad you used M-A-N in the title because that is very true of both genders. When either gender is insecure they follow what you just described to a "TEE" and then some.

      I enjoyed it.

      Peace and joy.
