Poem: Emotional Companion

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Emotional companion is a poem about how a man should have a preprogrammed woman so he can listen to only the words he desires. He doesn't have to deal with sadness, negative thoughts or hear her nagging but he is the one who loses out. He doesn't get to experience the essence of true love.

Emotional Companion

He needs a playmate

to make him smile,

a casual acquaintance,

upbeat and positive,

no sadness or negativity allowed.

A real life blow up doll

wired with a robots mind,

to satisfy his moody needs,

keeping her on the top shelf with his prize possessions.

He can take her down

whenever he wants to hear words of praise,

believing someone cares,

listening to only the words he desires,

never getting to experience

the true essence of love.
